The Voigtländer Brillant 2x Zoom a simple mid-range 35mm film camera. There is little information about this camera, the same camera was also marketed as Braun Trend 60 Zoom with little information either. It was probably released in the late 90s when the digital market was not coming up yet. It has a wide-angle zoom that covers 28-56mm. The “Brillant” name initially stood for a famous 6×6 Twin Lens ReflexA Twin Lens Reflex camera uses two lenses, one for composing the picture, and one for taking the picture. The two lenses are close together so that although the viewfinder is separate, it sees a field of view nearly identical to that of the taking lens. More Camera. There is another series of modern 35mm Point and Shoot cameras called Brillant AF with various bodies, but without Zoom.
Features and operation
28-56mm F5.6-10 lens
Electronic shutterEither mechanical and/or electronic shutters are possible. Mechanical systems can use a leaf (or iris) shutter or curtain shutter. In digital cameras a third alternative is also possible: the electronic shutter. This works by activating and then deactivating the CCD so that no further light can be recorded, regardless of whether light is hitting the CCD. The shutter controls the exposure time, which can range from thousandths of a second to several minutes or more. Fast shutter speeds freeze action, slow speeds are more suited to stationary subjects. A tripod is recommended for slow exposure shots to avoid camera shake. More

100-400 ISOInternational Organization for Standardization represents the film’s (or sensors) sensitivity to the light. The higher the number, the more information will be captured. 400 ISO film is more sensitive to light than 200 ISO film by 1 stop., only 2 contacts present, automatic DX coding, automatic film advance, AF and AE, special modes: red-eye reduction, flash off, fill-in flash, infinity mode without flash, self-timer
This camera is easy to use. AutofocusAutofocus (AF) is an optical system that uses a sensor, a control system and a motor to focus on an automatically or manually selected point or area. The process of autofocusing generally works as follows: • An autofocus processor (AFP) makes a small change in the focusing distance.
• AFP reads the AF sensor to assess whether and by how much focus has improved.
• Using the information from (2), the AFP sets the lens to a new focusing distance.
Autofocus systems can be found on film and digital cameras. More is not confirmed but works well. Putting a film is easy as well, you drop the film, tear the film leader up to the mark and that's it. The camera winds it automatically. It has some settings if needed, the menu is very easy to access on a clear LCD screen.
It's a point-and-shoot camera with a wide-angle zoom lens. It sets the flash on from start but has a flash-off mode. It sets the flash again after each photo which is annoying. Nevertheless a nice camera, easy point-and-shoot with wide angle zoom.
