  • Shutter speeds: B;1-1000th
  • ASA: 12-1600
  • Self-timer
  • DOF/Aperture preview lever with battery-operated exposure guide LEDs
  • Front-mounted shutter release
  • 42mm screw mount

The greatest advantages are the low weight and the unspeakably practical exposure display via the two light-emitting diodes, which I would like to call revolutionary!

The biggest disadvantage, however, is the film advance lever. Not only is it made of plastic and can therefore break off. It is also not very easy and fluid to use, so you have to use some strength. But it can also be due to the age of the camera.

Praktica MTL 50. Second version. The design of the speed dial and self-timer differs from the first version.

Praktica MTL 50 uses an 6V PX28/4LR44 battery. The battery chamber has the same size as the earlier PX21-modells. The empty space left due to reduction of battery size is used for some electronic 4.5V /6 V conversion.
