Regula LKB

Jump to: navigation, search

The Regula LKB was a 35mm viewfinder camera made at Bad Liebenzell in the Black Forest by King KG in the 1960s as a part of their Regula brand. There are two versions of this camera, the earlier model has styling similar to a cross between the Regulette and a Regula L, and the later model has styling almost identical to a Regulette; the functionality and specification of the cameras are identical though. Considering the styling cues from the Regulette this camera is most likely just a Regulette with a coupled light meter and faster shutter, since the Regulette only has a uncoupled light meter.
