Praktica L

The Practica L is the basic model of the range. It is purely mechanical with no light meter. It has the vertical focal plane shutter and well positioned release button comm to all the models in the range.

A 'clunky' machine with a shutter range 1 to 1/1000. There is no self timer on this particular model. Lens is a Carl Zeiss Jena  Tessar 2.8/50 on an M52 thread fit.

The L model has no light meter. Aperture is normaly open full, closing only when the shutter release is pushed. Being on the front of the body the shutter release is very convenient to use.
