This is a very cool Praktiflex FX 35mm Camera made by Kamera-Werkstätten VEB Niedersedlitz (that's a mouthful!) Let's just say it's a German camera. It takes 42mm screw mount lenses, so you can get a bunch of different lenses for this camera. Right now it has a nice Auto Mamiya Sekor 50mm f2 lens on it, which is included with the camera. It's a fine everyday, walk around lens.

The thing I love about this camera is the waist-level view finder with condenser type ground-glass focusing screen (Stevens Screen), fixed, w/ Magnifier and eye level sports finder. It allows you to open the viewfinder and hold the camera at your waistline to take photos instead of bringing the camera up to you eye. If you've never used a waist-level viewfinder, you're in for a treat! This is a great camera to take out and shoot some real film!

Condition:

Cosmetics - Excellent. Clean, no dents, very little wear. A few age spots.
Lens - Looks clean and dust-free.
Shutter - Fires well, sounds accurate.

Specs:
Shutter speeds from 1/25-1/500, +B
Lens 50mm f2-16

Where did this camera come from? I purchased this one and many others at auction from a collection from a photography store. They seemed to have been cleaned professionally at one point, but they have been sitting around for some time. I only clean the outside, leatherette and big grungy bits very gently. I do not wipe lenses, I simply dust them a bit with a soft brush. I never use compressed air to clean my cameras as that may damage them and just blows the dust around. I do not test any camera with film, but I do test their mechanics. Any small or significant issues are always disclosed.
