The Super TL2 is a 35mm SLR in the Praktica line. It was introduced in 1975. During its three years of production, 15.000 bodies were manufactured. Its name suggests it to be the successor of the very successful super TL. While put in a newly designed body with a steel-bladed shutter, it in fact mirrors the Super TL’s specifications. Most likely the model was produced to use up existing stocks of older parts. In order to warrant a low sticker price, specifications are basic. The camera lacks a 1/1000 second shutter speed and a self-timer. TTL-metering is triggered by a key located near the shutter release, using the stopped-down aperture method.
