Praktica cameras

This is not a complete collection of everything there s to know about Praktica cameras. Information from our collection of advertising and magazines is patchy. If more information becomes available, it will be posted here.

The Praktica was originally a camera from K.W. (Kameraworkwerkstatten Niedersedlitz). In post-war Germany, the factory was in East Germany and it became V.E.B. Kameraworkwerkstatten Niedersedlitz. In 1964 it was absorbed into the V.E.B. Pentacon group.
