I have two 6x9 folders, a VOIGTLANDER BESSA circa 1937 uncoated 105 mm 4.5 SKOPAR and an AGFA BILLY COMPUR circa 1948 to 1949 105 mm 4.5 SOLINAR not sure if coated. Are they good for landscapes?

You would need to try it out and see ... and this needs film & processing costs as well
Obviously their original owners would have done their best with the cameras ~ you need to decide whether you want to re-create the sort of images they would have created ... and remember- many of today's digital cameras have a 'retro' setting available as a JPG option for you to play with too

Hope this helps

Phil, I will at age 80 stay with what I know best, film. I have used a LEICA M-3 with 50 mm 2.8 ELMAR since 1968 and am just getting started with medium format. I intend to use 50 to 100 ASA black and white film with the BESSA and BILLY so that will probably re create what the original owners produced.
