Scope and content
Item is a single lens reflex camera manufactured by the Ihagee company in Dresden for producing 8 4 x 6.5 cm exposures on 127 roll film.

The B series had seven models. Lens is a Carl Zeiss Jena Nr.1640422 Tessar, 1:2.8 f 7.5. Ihagee's Dresden factory was destroyed in the WWII bombing of Dresden in 1945.
