KameraWerkstatten Produced the camera under Kombinat VEB Pentacon in Dresden and the responsible constructor was Rolf Noack. The production period went from November 1975 to March 1978 and the number that was produced was 349,919. The shutter is mechanically controlled with a vertical-moving metal-blade focal plane for shutter exposure time. The possible shutter settings are B, 1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, and 1/1000 of a second. The view finder is a fixed eye-level view finder (Pentaprism) with a Fresnel lens and it has a micro prism range finder for a focusing screen, built-in shutter speed meter mirror with instant-return mirror. The cameras lens mount is an M42x1. The camera also has a mechanical 10 second self-timer, TTL-metering system, X-synchronization (1/125) flash system, accessory shoe at the top of the pentaprism, and uses a Varta V 625 battery. This is the last of the LTL series, and while it lacks some of the refined feel of the MTL3 it predates, it’s a great user and said to be an improvement of the previous LTL. The shutter release is on the front of the camera rather than the top and there is a reminder tab in the viewfinder that pops up to indicate that the shutter needs to be cocked!
