Praktica LTL3


Praktica_LTL3_08.jpg

Praktica LTL3 35mm SLR. Manufactured in East Germany from 1975 to 1978.

Description - A well designed and solid built German 35mm SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera manufactured by the East German VEB Pentacon Company between 1975 and 1978, with three Carl Zeiss Jena lenses. The lenses were detachable and screwed onto the Pentax/Praktica Universal M42 Screw Mount on the front of the camera. Each lens is also fitted with a clear glass UV (Ultra Violet) B filter to reduce glare from sunlight reflections e.g. for when taking photos of water with sunlight reflecting off it.

History - Pentacon introduced the LTL series in 1972. The LTL3 (model shown here) was introduced in 1975 and replaced by the Prakica MTL3 in 1978 which continued in production until 1984. The lenses featured here are all made by Carl Zeiss Jena lenses; a Company founded by Carl Zeiss (1816-1888) who was a German maker of optical instruments.
