Despite its precise Germanic appearance, the Beirette is a lightly built snapshot camera. I found the controls easy to manipulate accidentally, and its versatility was somewhat limited by a maximum 1/125 shutter speed. It reminded me a lot of my SMENAs; it was better looking but not as fun to use.
A flat tire last week brought me to the shop, and the Bierette was in my pocket. It makes decent images, and it does look sharp doing it. If I had to choose though, I’d take most anything from Voigtlander instead (especially my Vito B.)
This week’s images are on Ilford FP4 developed in Caffenol Delta-STD.
