Praktica MTL 3


This look and feel exacly like the Pentacon Praktica LTL that I have testad before.
But this have a better viewfinder, flash sync connection.

Still missing the mirror lock and the viewfinder is fairly dark.

So you get a all mechanical camera that's very reliable but I think it lakes that nice feel many cameras from the 70s have.

Thumbs up:
All mechanical shutter

Thumbs down:
Fairly dark viewfinder
No mirror lock
