Analog Camera In Stock Now

Praktica MTL5, made in East Germany by Pentacon between 1983 and 1985. This camera uses the M42 screw mount interchangeable lenses.

It features TTL exposure metering, triggered by a switch next to the front-mounted shutter release; this stops down the lens and operates a needle-centring display on the right edge of the viewfinder. The meter is powered by a mercury battery fitted in the base, and its film speed set by lifting and rotating the shutter speed dial. The vertical, metal-curtained focal plane shutter runs from 1s to 1/1000s +B, with a self-timer giving a delay of about 7 seconds. The vertical blades allow X-flash sync up to 1/125s.
