Exa Ihagee Dresden

This is one of my oldest vintage cameras. This is Exa from Dresden, Germany. Serial number of the body is 401 155 and this indicates that this is type 1.5.1. manufactured between years 1956 and 1959. The lens that is attached should be a Carl Zeiss Tessar 50/2.8; there is no pentaprism viewfinder, only the hood type (not sure about the proper translation) but this is changeable so I guess that normal viewfinder was available as an accessories. You can manualy focus, set the aperture and set the time from 1/150 to 1/25 and of course B mode. It all works nice, I shot with this equipment one roll of black and white film. But I have got problems with setting exposition, there is no metering and I used an exposition meter with different unit scale, so...

But still after all those years nice piece of metal IMHO
