Exakta Obscurities

       An exciting new book for Exakta fans and camera collectors.

Comments on Exakta Obscurities by Gary Cullen

My goal was to present rare and unusual Exaktas - ones different from what had already been shown in A&R's book or any of the  other Exakta books already in print. Ninety per cent of the Exakta items in my book have not been published before. It presents a fantastic collection of photos and information on some of the most interesting Exakta equipment to surface in the last 15 years. One chapter is a detailed review of Richard Hummel's work on proving the Kine Exakta beat the Russian Sport by 20 months as the world’s first 35mm SLR. Another chapter is on the earliest Kine Exaktas that have some pre-production parts. This small batch of cameras are extremely important historically because they represent the world’s earliest surviving 35mm SLRs. There’s a chapter on the Kine Exakta "Varex", an early post-war Exakta never built and also a chapter dedicated to the father of the Exakta, Karl Nuchterlein. I'm sure you will enjoy it!
