The Praktica LTL 3 is is a basic but well-designed East German 35mm SLR camera from the late 1970s. It uses the common M42 lens mount (found in Pentax Spotmatic SLRs and many other types). It's in great working condition. All shutter speeds are working with good accuracy. It includes a sharp Penacon 50mm f1.8 lens and the original 'ever-ready' case.
The LTL 3 has a vertical running focal plane shutter (similar to the Copal Square types used in Konica and Nikkormat cameras) with speeds from bulb to 1/1000 sec. The flash sync speed is 1/125.
The camera originally used a PX625 battery for its light-meter but a 675 zinc-air cell makes a good replacement (available as an option).
Condition notes The camera and lens are in excellent aesthetic and functional condition; it was tested with film and delivered sharp, correctly exposed images. In addition, its shutter speeds travel time accuracy and symmetry were tested as was its light meter.
