I started my use of SLRs with the Hanimex Praktica Nova 1B.  I cannot recall how I came to be in possession of this camera but I think I may have found it in the classified ads of my local news paper.  I was quite excited to have this camera.  My previous camera, a Minolta Hi-Matic 7S made nice pictures but did not allow for interchangeable lenses, and if I remember correctly, had limited manual exposure options. 

The Praktica that  I got came with a mamiya/sekor 1:2.0 50mm lens.  In order to make it fit the camera, the auto/manual aperture switch was removed.  I enjoyed this camera for a short time but soon felt the siren-song of through-the-lens meters and opted to move along.  Still, this was an interesting camera - enough so that many years later I managed to find another example and add it to my collection.  It came with a lens that is most likely not the lens that would have come with the camera (once again).
