Exakta II SLR camera - made in Germany by Ihagee Dresden. A pretty neat piece of history! It has a very nice Ludwig Meritar 50mm Lens f2.9. The Exakta II is the only Exakta with the black lens flange.

This camera was used and is worn in the typical places on the leather and metal corners. Everything seems to function fine. Shutter, aperture, movements and the curtain look good. It has an awesome waist-level viewfinder with magnifier and viewfinder window. The Leather is curled a bit in the corners, but it is all present and you could put in a drop of glue if it bothers you.

This camera, made between 1949-1950, would be awesome to take out and do some real shooting. She isn't the prettiest, but she is strong and ready to shoot!


Cosmetics - Very good. Needs a general cleaning, no dents, a little wear. A few age spots.
Lens - Looks clean and dust-free.
Shutter - Fires well, sounds accurate.

Shutter speeds from 1/25-1/1000, +B and z
Lens Ludwig Meritar 50mm Lens f2.9

Where did this camera come from? I purchased this one and many others at auction from a collection from a photography store. They seemed to have been cleaned professionally at one point, but they have been sitting around for some time. I only clean the outside, leatherette and big grungy bits very gently. I do not wipe lenses, I simply dust them a bit with a soft brush. I never use compressed air to clean my cameras as that may damage them and just blows the dust around. I do not test any camera with film, but I do test their mechanics. Any small or significant issues are always disclosed.
