The Beirette vsn, a simple 35mm camera made in the DDR (former Eastern Germany), introduced in 1977.

This version has a Meritar 45mm f/2.8 lens and a Priomat-S shutter with 4 speeds. The lens is manually focused by a distance scale, and 4 weather symbols tell the user which aperture to choose.

It is mainly made of plastic and aluminium, with some metal parts. They were sold with an eveready case, a wristband and a user manual. The camera in the picture has a factory control sticker on the box, indicating it left the factory in June 1979.
