There is also the 1955 Pentaflex SLR by Tokiwa Seiki.

The Pentaflex SL is a 35mm film SLR camera by KW and introduced in 1967. It uses a M42 lens mount.

It is a fully mechanical camera requiring no batteries. It has a cloth based shutter which has speeds of 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250 and 1/500 plus a bulb mode. The shutter release is located on the front of the body and is compatible with common cable releases. There is a locking feature on the collar that prevents accidental exposure during transport. McKeown says it is the same as the Praktica Nova.[1]
