Exakta Varex IIa - Version 2 - (1958)

Exakta Varex IIa is introduced at the end of 1956.

On the first models, its designation is engraved on the front plate. Starting 1958 and until 1960, it will be embossed. After 1961, a black plate engraved EXAKTA will be sticked on the front of the camera, just above the designation of Varex IIa.

This model is the first one from Ihagee offering 3 separated synchro-flash plugs : X, M and F (for rapid flashbulbs).

Different lens can be adapted on its body. It is presented here with a lens Enna - Lithagon - 1:3.5 f=35 mm.

As with the Exakta VX, it is possible to remove the viewfinders in order to used ad-hoc focusing glass.

Other similarities with the VX, the Exakta Varex IIa is equiped with a curtain shutter operating within a range of shutter speeds from 1/25 to 1/1000 of seconde. This camera has also a special knob allowing setting of the long exposures and self-timer.
