Exakta RTL1000

Came to me via a good friend along with the other two Exaktas. This is really a Praktica L series with an Exakta mount replacing the M42 mount. Slow speeds are needing some exercise and the self timer and long time exposure lever doesn't work. In fact the 2,4 and 8 second dial is on upside down. It came with a TTL prism too which is in very bad condition.

 

Update:

- The slow speeds now work fine.

- The "2,4 and 8" dial on the self timer fell off and I reattached it the right way up. :-) After some exercise the 2 and 4 seconds work but the 8 is unreliable and the self-timer still doesn't work.

- I've now acquired a plain non metered prism
