The Edixa were the only real 35mm SLR system cameras made in Western Germany. Other cameras of that (extremely versatile) type were the Exa, Exakta and Praktica series made in Eastern Germany. System camera means that not only a vast choice of lenses is available but that the viewing system also can be adapted to varying requirements: focusing hood vs. penta prism, groundglass vs. crossed hair etc.) The designer of these cameras was Heinz Waaske.
