Back in the Summer of 2017 I bought this KW Praktina FX at a UK Camera Fair, it's
in excellent condition for its age, and fully functional.

Build quality is superb on a par with a Leica. This was the first professional 35mm SLR
system camera, unlike the Exactas it takes a bulk back and motor drives



The Praktina cameras use a breech-lock lens mount for fast accurate lens changes, this model
has a semi auto diaphragm, the lens is cocked into the full aperture position and the first
pressure of the shutter release stops the lens down to the selected aperture.
