Exa 500 + 50mm f/2.8

The images are part of the product 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 lens - underneath the lens-mounted stop-down lever (or button, depending on the lens). Pressing the lever stopped down the lens, and further pressure also pressed the shutter release. This arrangement meant that there was no coupling necessary from camera to lens to stop down the diaphragm. 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 a central micro prism - 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 were completely removable for loading film; this being released by rotating the surround of the tripod bush.
