The Vito Automatic I was first produced in the early 1960's by Voigtländer. It featured a Lanthar f/2.8 50mm lens, later models also featured the Color-Lanthar f/2.8 50mm which is esentually the same lens it's just calibrated for color photography. The shutter is a Prontor Lux shutter 1/30 - 1/500 Bulb on the later models with the Color-Lanthar lens a Prontormatic 125 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, B, X-synchronized shutter was used. The viewfinder is 1:1 Brightline with a red/green indicator to help aid the photographer in knowing if an exposure is possible and inside the appropriate f/stop. If the indicator is showing red, then the photo will either be underexposed or overexposed depending on the situation.
