Beirette VS “Commie” Camera SOLD

BEIRETTE VS
PRODUCT ID: SF110909

OVERVIEW

This camera is rare I have problems finding sufficient information online (apologies). All I can say that it’s has a very nice communist look, and great for experimental photography – pictures can be quite crappy or quite brilliant! Lomo lovers will definitely love this.

The VS was made in the early 70’s and has a metal body. The older shutter design allows multiple exposures (the shutter can be triggered repeatedly without advancing film), a “feature” not available in the later plastic models. The VS is also far less common.
