Vintage Exa500 film camera

Description

The Exa 500 - also known as the Exakta 500 and VX 200 - was introduced in 1966 by Ihagee of Dresden, Germany (then DDR/East Germany). It was the last of the Exa line of 35mm SLRs.

The Exa 500 shared an unusual "bulgy" shape with other Exa SLRs. The shutter-release was a separate button, on the body to the photographer's left side of the the lens . The lens mount was the Exakta bayonet fitting.

The vertical cloth focal-plane shutter was faster than the earlier Exas, running from 1/2 - 1/500s. The speed dial is mounted around the rewind crank.

The eye-level pentaprism viewfinder was fixed, and featured an instant-return mirror and a bright ground-glass focusing screen with central microprism - all unlike many other Exas. There was a red pointer in the viewfinder to indicate when winding was required.

The advance lever has a travel of only ~120° - shorter than previous Exas. Around the top of the advance lever, the frame counter counts down; on the edge of the counter is a film speed reminder. The back of the camera features a shutter lock lever.

The back and the base of the camera was completely removable for loading film; this being released by rotating the surround of the tripod bush.

Camera is in good vintage condition and working well mechanically. This camera is fitted with a n optica 1:3.5 F=35 mm lens. Not film tested.
