    This one has the Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Tessar 50mm/2.8.

    Such a smooth functioning camera.

    Yes, Exaktas were cool looking cameras, even the ones made in the East Germany factory. Nice example of a Ia.

    Hello,
    Can anyone help me with the manual for this camera? How it opens? I want to change film but I don't know how to open it...

    Some Exas have a lock on one end and some have the lock on the bottom.
    I believe the Ia has the lock on the bottom. Rotate to unlock and slide off
    the back downward.

    You're very lucky it's in such good condition, often the shutters are jammed and the mirror in poor condition.

    I have a Exa IIa which needs repair and a new mirror. I nearly bought an Exa or Exacta new while a teenager, I wish I had now :D

    There's some good Exacta lenses around, the 29mm Lydith is a surprisingly excellent performer, it was remarkably cheap new, I had the Pentacon versions in M42 screw fit and have an Exacta mount version for ny VXIIb

    They are fun cameras to use enjoy.
