Praktica Super TL

Viewfinder:

Not very good size or brightness.


Build quality:

Like a tank!
Very robust.


Conclusion:

In turmes of build quality I must say this is a real gem.
But there are some things thats not so great.
The viewfinder which is not very impressive and a odd shutter button thats directly linked to the stoping down of the aperture.
So if you press the shutter button and let go of it the aperture will go back to wide open even if the shutter is still open.
This can only be a problem with longer shutter speed.

Thumbs up:

All mechanical shutter
Reliable
Built like a tank

Thumbs down:
Viewfinder
Shutter button linked to aperture
