Praktica B100 Electronic + MC Pentacon Prakticar 1.8/50mm
We are selling this camera in a good working order and a "B-" cosmetic condition; the original leatherette back had to be re-applied as the previous owner has used hot glue on the camera. It has been brought back to the best possible condition.
The camera has a fully automatic shutter speed setting – it’s not possible to select the shutter speed yourself, other than by changing the aperture to shift it. This camera was aimed at the beginner photographer who wanted a ‘point and shoot’ camera. The metering is carried out ‘through the lens’ at full aperture and is powered by a PX28 battery fitted in the bottom of the camera. The lens has electronic contacts which allow the metering circuitry to read the aperture value set on the lens so all the composition, focusing and aperture selection is carried out with the brightest view possible and the aperture stopped down only at the moment of exposure.
