KW Praktica FX2

This heavy camera, beautifully made, with generous dimensions, is very wide; however the top cover is thin. In the absence of the optional prism, the reflex sight is by direct reading on the ground glass with the help, if needed, of the integrated magnifier or direct sight by raising the flap on the front.

The rotation of the large button at left on the  top view, provides the film advance and the cocking of the shutter. Speed adjustment is possible from ½ s to 1 / 500th by rotating the selector which shows two marks (red and black) corresponding to the choice of flash sync type.

Located on the front, the trigger is perfectly suited to the sight from above.

This device is presented with an Orestor lens 1: 2.8 /100 mm signed Meyer-Optik Goerlitz.
