The Praktica LTL is an East German 35mm SLR camera with interchangeable M42 screw-mount lenses and stop-down TTL metering, produced from December 1970 to November 1975 by Pentacon.

Praktica LTL is a fully manual 35mm SLR, which used a battery only for its exposure measuring circuit. In construction, the camera is uninspiring and rather box-like but has a reputation for reliability and toughness. The fact that this camera is working perfectly after 50 years is a testament to that.

The lens mount is the widely used M42 screw thread mount, originally used by Pentax, which means the camera can be used with a vast array of lenses from a huge variety of manufacturers.

t has a vertical-run focal plane shutter, with speeds from 1s to 1/1000 + B and a self-timer operated by a rotating lever below the front-mounted shutter release.

The meter is operated by a button on the side of the mirror housing, which is pushed back to stop down the lens and activate the meter. Film speeds for the meter are set by a scale inset into the top of the shutter-speed dial. The meter requires a PX625 mercury battery or equivalent; otherwise, the camera is entirely mechanical.
