Aug 29, 2007 Yep, it's certainly based on an Edixa Prismaflex, probably the LTL, although one source suggests it is based on the TTL. But, the TTL has an external meter display, with shutter speed from 14 s, the LTL has internal display with speeds fom 130. Jan 21, 2012 The LTL was the last Edixa model in production until 1971.
It was replaced by the short lived Edixa Electronica TTL, a completely new camera which though perfectly up to date for the time, cost too much to produce and sold poorly. Then that was it.

The Wirgin company was founded in 1920, and manufactured their first camera in 1927. In 1938, the Nazis forced the factory into a merger with the Adox company. After the war one of the founding brothers, Heinrich Wirgin, recreated the company in Germany. In 1962 Wirgin bought FrankaWerke.
Nov 29, 2011 They introduced some TTL versions later but due to the primitive shutter mechanism, the TTL metering was NOT coupled to the shutter speeds, and readings had to be transferred manually. I own both a Edixa TTL SLR and a Spotmatic, both from the same era, and it is hard to believe that both were made in the same decade.
The Edixa Prismaflex LTL was a single lens reflex camera body for M42 screw mount lenses with aperture release pin. It was the budget version of Wirgin 's SLR bodies with TTL metering which were introduced in 1966 (Edixa Rex TTL with bayonet) and 1967 Edixa Prismaflex TTL This model, made in 1966 or '67, also has a CdS meter.
This now reads through the lens, but the meter display is still on the meter itself, on the top housing.
