View Full Version : Werra matic?

11-03-2004, 00:07
I've found in the bottom of a box a pretty but (for me) unknown camera: a WERRA matic. It has a Carl Zeiss Tessar 50mm 1:2,8 lens, and it's very beatyful.

Can you tell me more about the WERRA?

PS: I suppose it's a dad's purchase, when it was in the DDR for his job.

I think this link should help.

I have a Werra I. They are very neat little cameras. Innovative shutter too. Back in the 1960's they were sold by some of the same importers in the US who sold Exaktas and Prakticas. Mine came by way of the French equivalent of a US flea market and then e-Bay.

I think Werra is town near a river of the sdame name in Germany.
