Voigtländer Brillant 2x Zoom


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 Reflex Camera. There is another series of modern 35mm Point and Shoot cameras called Brillant AF with various bodies, but without Zoom.

This camera is easy to use. Autofocus 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.
