Praktica 950 Zoom


The technical stuff:

Camera type: Viewfinder Automatic 

Lens Type: "Japan Lens" 38 -95mm

Shutter Type: Automatic



I came by this as something of a "hobson's choice" because I was struggling to find a camera in Reading for the next round of the challenge and this was all I could find. I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much in terms of performance. These Praktica's might have a pedigree name but they are not up to the standard of the classic SLR's. However, I have been pleasantly surprised and it has turned in some very good images, not up with best but certainly more than acceptable. The camera itself feels very light and flimsy, this one has already got a broken battery compartment, but mechanically it is very good. The lens and wind motor is very quick and quiet and the AF seems to be pretty much on the mark, only fooled on one shot where there was not a lot of contrast for it to focus on. Putting it's minor faults aside I would say that this is a good little camera and I might take it out again sometime.
