The Vokar B followed the original Folding Vokar as a simple 6×6 rollfilm camera made by Electronic Products Mfg. Corp. in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

This model added chromed top and bottom plates for a more substantial appearance than the earlier model, which was entirely bakelite. The wind knobs are now positioned more conventionally on the top of the camera. Also, the earlier "variocoupled" shutter and aperture were abandoned, in favor of more conventional controls. The lens was an f/6.3 anastigmat, and the shutter offered a limited range of 1/25, 1/50, and 1/100 second exposures as well as T and B.

A version of this camera re-appeared under the Voigt and Voigt Junior brands, as well as under the Wirgin Deluxe name[1].
