An Altissa Altix-NB (type 1B) camera with a Meyer-Optik Görlitz Trioplan 50mm F/2.9 red V lens.
Shortly after the release of the Altissa Altix-NB, Altissa-Kamera-Werk Dresden became part of the large Pentacon consortium, along with other small manufacturers of camera equipment.
The Altissa Altix-NB was produced briefly in 1958-1959.
The camera is in very good condition. The viewfinder is clear. The selenium light meter, which can be closed, works well. The film winding lever works nicely and the shutter speeds all work well. (Note: the shutter speed indication on the light meter goes up to 1/500 seconds while the maximum shutter speed of the camera is 1/250 seconds. This is probably because the light meter was also placed on a type with a faster shutter speed)
The interchangeable lens is scratch-free with a few dust particles, purely cosmetic, otherwise clean, and it focuses smoothly. It is very well regarded and has 12 aperture blades for a mighty beautiful bokeh. The filter thread has a few tiny imperfections without any effect.
A very nice collectible camera but also very nice to use, especially the lens.
