So my grandfather passed away after Thanksgiving, and when we were cleaning out his apartment my dad found his old film cameras, a Praktica Nova IB and a Praktica LLC. I can't find out much about them, other than the Nova IB is completely mechanical and has an uncoupled meter that needs no battery, the LLC is all mechanical and needs a PX21 battery for the TTL meter, and that they're both M42 mount. Any thoughts/tips/knowledge about them? I was thinking this could be a good excuse for me to actually enroll in photography II next semester now that I have both a solid manual camera and a sentimental reason...

Dang, sorry to hear about your loss LBN... but yeah, that seems like a nice reason to take a photography course if I've ever heard of one.. As for the cameras themselves, I've never (that I'm aware of) personally encountered them, unless they are knockoffs of another style, etc..

Sorry for your loss man.

Send a message to marin, dreamkiller, or sub50hz. If those three cant help you try dudemanppl and foothead (they dont check ocn often so i didnt lost them first)

If any of them cant help you then honest you might have to learn as you go wink.gif

Ill look what you have up later today. Unless they are way different than any other slr out there i can help you as well. Cool thing about m42 is you have a wide range of glass to chose from as screw mount is easy to find glass for smile.gif

Yeah, I've done a little bit of searching for them, but not too much is coming up. They're East German (no clue how my grandfather got them here in the US...) and it looks like the dedicated Praktica lens for the LLC is missing, so I won't be able to get full-aperture metering.

scenarios for metering is: drag your D7000 around to meter, smart phone light meter app, or buy a cheap used light meter on KEH/ebay/wherever

the most convenient is to have a meter built into the camera you are using and i can say while it doesnt compare because i dont know the cameras you have but the meter built into my XD11 is pretty decent. it is like sort of center weight average metering on my 7D except less intuitive. if i know im metering something that is bright or dark in color i have to tell my camera by means of exposure compensation. whereas sometimes it seems like my 7D knows at times when i am metering with it although i have used exposure compensation on my DSLR many times. now that i have my own light meter even though its missing its high slide frown.gif i used it much more than the xd11 meter on my last photo trip and my shots came out nicely exposed for the most part smile.gif

ALSO

this website is the most amazing website on the internet. they have the manuals to almost everything it seems like. before i bought my XD11 i was reading through the manuals on several cameras i was interested in to learn a little about them. and also helped me when i first got my bronica as well.

Prakticas are rad -- I found one at an estate sale a few years back, I should check what model it is later on tonight.
post #22428 of 29551
So I was given a promaster XC525 tripod for Christmas. It seems pretty okay until I put the graphic view on it. then it gets all wobbly. It's reasonably sturdy with the field camera or 645 though. I guess this will be my new hiking tripod. It folds up small and one of the legs comes off to be a monopod (or for me, hiking stick).

Two copies of the Sigma 24/1.8, and neither one work on the D7k. Both work on my F100, a D300 and two D800s. Heinous.
