Ihagee Exakta VX

Manufactured around 1951, this SLR has an interchangeable pentaprism finder, and a horizontal-run focal-plane shutter with speeds from 12 seconds to 1/1000 second. The Carl Zeiss lens is a Biotar 5.8cm f/2.

This model is also found engraved Exakta Varex VX. The Varex name was dropped in some markets because of trademark issues.
