    Re quest for finding the lens filter and hood for Voigtlander vito Three

    I have a Voigtlander Vito Ⅲ camera, which I had it for a while, but never been used. This is due because of not having a lens filter, and the hood. Thus I am afraid I may scratch the lens.
    I have decided rather than the camera just sits in a corner of my desk as a decorative object correcting dust. I would like to use it. Does any one know where I might be able to purchase a lens filter and the hood for this camera?

    You could measure the filter size (and the outside lens diameter).

    If you're in Europe, I might even have something which fits sitting around...

    I thank you very much for your reply on this. I guess my Vito three has a 32mm diameter lens (it is fitter with an Ultron F2) I have found a hood for Vittesser camera, which the person at the camera shop told me that it will fit to Vito as well? But the price is more than $ 250. I know it is vital to have a lens hood, and filter. But I have to think twice spending this much money just for the lens hood and the filter. I guess I will search some thing at e-bay.

    Thanks

    It will be fine without a hood. Just try it out. Not sure how anyone can justify $250 just for a lens hood.

    If it's a 32mm push on you need, I'm sure I have one here that you can have for the postage cost. I will check and post again if I have a 32mm one. I know I have a couple which fit my Vito.

    I don't have any push on filters for that size. I assume you just want a UV filter. As far as I am aware, you can't use a filter and a hood at the same time. If I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will correct me!

    To reiterate my comment earlier though, I think you should try it as it is. I have a Vito B and a Vitomatic II and have never used a hood with it. There are some pictures from mine in my gallery.

    I think I am getting confused! Is yours a folding 120 roll film camera or a 35mm camera? (mine are 35mm and fixed, not folding) The Vito name was used for many variants. Either way, I will still look for a 32mm hood tonight.

    I'm assuming yours is this one: http://www.marriottworld.com/vito_cameras/vito111.htm This page also confirms that it has a 32mm filter mount.
