Voigtländer Perkeo E medium format roll film uncoupled rangefinder camera, circa 1955.
Perkeo means a pygmy.
A compact and light camera, true to Perkeo’s name, looks remarkably like a standard 35mm camera.

Color-Skopar 1: 3,5/80 lens no 3634995.
Prontor-SVS 1-300 shutter.
Optically clean with no problems.
The shutter runs at all speeds but will require a service to get up the speed.
Selectable VMX flash synchronization.
The uncoupled rangefinder works well, the reading is taken from the top dial and the lens set accordingly.
The shutter button is locked against double exposures, an arrow appears in the top plate window prompting to wind on.
Cosmetically in excellent little used condition, light surface wear to the curved details on the front cover, good and clean throughout.
Nice leather outer case.
