    Voigtlander Vitoret: a basic question

    Hello
    Some Voigtlader cameras, when empty, do not cock the shutter simply by moving the winding lever: it is necessary that the sprockets are moved at the same time - as if there was film loaded - and then the shutter is cocked. My Voigtlander Vito B works like that.
    My question: Does the same apply to Voigtlander Vitoret models?
    Thank you in advance
    Joao

    I had a couple of those. The spool has to turn to cock the shutter.

    Sounded strange, so I just checked my Vitoret (s/n 126005, vaskar 2.8/50 lens) and it will cock the shutter with no film loaded.
