Praktica Nova VF (Pentacon) , 35mm SLRcamera, c1964

Praktica Nova VF, an East German made 35mm SLR. Acquired initially to reduce wear and tear on the Nova B, this camera turned out to be a little suspect, tending to cut the edge off pictures when shutter speeds in excess of 125th/sec were used. After a couple of outings it was retired to the collection as the Nova B had to be retired as well.
