Operating + Sounds
Praktica PL nova IB

Viewfinder:

Fairly small but okay brightness.


Build quality:

Like a tank!
Very robust.


Conclusion:

This is more or less the same camera as the Praktica Super TL.
But this is a earlier version that don't have a true the lens light metering and a external one instead.

Find this to have a little brigher viewfinder then the Super TL.
This also have the
odd shutter button thats directly linked to the stoping down of the aperture.
So if you press the shutter button and let go of it the aperture will go back to wide open even if the shutter is still open.
This can only be a problem with longer shutter speed.

Thumbs up:

All mechanical shutter
Reliable
Built like a tank

Thumbs down:
Shutter button linked to aperture
Small viewfinder
