Very rare early modified 500 EL/M with black anodised finish, produced for the Apollo Lunar missions. It is from the first generation NASA motor-driven cameras that shot the first images on the surface of the moon. With some other modifications the camera mirror was removed to reduce the camera weight. A special large locking mechanism was added in order to change film magazines with bulky space gloves on. Similarly a larger sturdier shutter release plate has been added to the camera. It comes with a special NASA Planar 2.8/80mm nº 4489001 with matching black anodised finish with control tabs, also designed for use with space gloves, manually engraved NASA inventory number, a 70mm 200-exposure magazine nº TR400144, the body engraved: NASA nº P/N SEB 33100082-201 S/N 251, one side engraved: NASA nº P/N SEB 33100082-S/N 359, Lunar Surface, Super Wide Camera, a special NASA dark slide, in total only 29 cameras of this type were produced for NASA, to our knowledge only one other camera has been offered for public sale in the past (nº TRE12650, 1968)
