The camera , named the Ihagee ELBAFLEX (Ihagee used the Exakta name unto 1970 and it is still trademarked , but ELBAFLEX is said to be used in Ihagee cameras from the 1970's and the startup selected this name instead) .
The camera , like most 35mm film camera revivals on kickstarter (Reflex 1 for example) is based on the Nikon F mount , With manual everything and wooden inserts , the camera is certainly going to be a great option for film shooters who want something "new" (but still old fashioned) . The ISO , shutter dials are all metallic and it features a flash sync port with 1/60 sync speed . The camera does not require any battery power as the shutter is all mechanical and It goes all the way unto 1/500 .
Pricing (pledging) for the camera starts at $299 if you want a basic ELBAFLEX basic model . The ELBAFLEX prime model on the other hand requires a $529 pledge . The difference between the models include the addition of a wooden grip , leather coverings and a full 5 year warranty plus quality assurance in Germany . The base model on the other hand does not come with the wooden grip (optional) and has no leather options for its cover , it also lacks the 5 year warranty and instead comes with a 2 year one and a Ukrainian factory quality pass . Both camera models are hand made in the Ukraine with the German team of the project providing oversight and designs .
