• First camera with electronic aperture communication

• $230 with f1.8 lens in 1972 ($1200 in 2010 dollars)

The Praktica LLC is notable because it was the first camera to transmit the selected lens aperture to the camera electrically. Since the lens stayed wide open except at the moment of exposure, so focusing could be at maximum aperture, the selected aperture, not the actual aperture, was used in the computation of the exposure.
