KW Praktina FX

The Praktina FX, at its launch, wanted to be a direct competitor of the Exakta. For this, it was proposed as the centerpiece of a complete camera system, including lenses, prisms and alternative focusing screens, a spring motor, an electric motor, a magnetic remote release, a large capacity back etc ...

The Praktina is an interchangeable lens camera with a rectifier type prism viewfinder and a second Newton type viewfinder.
The curtain type shutter reaches the 1/1000 of a second.

Some features, such as buttons, Newton Viewfinder window make me think of a Contax.
