he Kine Exakta might have been the first 35mm SLR camera. It was developed by Ihagee's engineer Karl Nüchterlein. The camera type was derived from the Ihagee-EXAKTA for rollfilm 4×6.5 cm, an earlier SLR-creation of Nüchterlein. The Kine Exakta was presented at the fair Leipziger Früjahrsmesse in spring 1936, one and a half year earlier than the Sport made by GOMZ.
