The Reflekta is a continuation of the Reflecta by Kamera-Werk Tharandt. The model name was spelled with a "k" from 1949 onwards. The Reflekta II is a version with double exposure prevention.

The production of the Reflekta and Reflekta II was taken over in 1950 by VEB Welta-Kamera-Werk, a merger of Welta and Kamera-Werk Tharandt.

The Reflekta was replaced by the Weltaflex in the mid-1950s.
