Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2012-11-20
Introduced in: 1975-1978
Lens mount: M42 mount
Shutter: 1/1000s to 1s plus a Bulb setting
Light meter: Through the lens (ISO 12 - 1600)
Flash: X & FP sync connection (sync 1/125 sec)
Takes standard 135 film
24×36 mm negative size.
Operating + Sounds
Fairly small and not that great brightness.
Exposure meter (match needle)
Vertical metal blade shutter.
Very solid and well built.
Uses M42 screw mount.
You can find hole range of old nice lenses for this.
Most of the Praktica cameras have the same camera housing and they added a feature with a new model.
This have electronic m42 mount which make it possible for lines that support it to have light metering without stopping down the lens.
The problem is that this camera can't stop down a lens that don't support this so you can only have wide open light metering on these.
These cameras have great build quality and the vertical metal shutter is very reliable.
Do lack some of that nice feel that many m42 SLR cameras have and I see this more like a reliable workhorse.
No mirror lock
Lightmeter don't work well with all lenses.
