The Praktica Super TL 3 was introduced in March 1978, showing no fundamental changes when compared to its predecessors. However, some minor detail changes were introduced:
- Brighter and larger view-finder image with a new Fresnel lens with a combination of a microprism and split image range-finder;
Hot shoe and additional PC flash socket on the camera body at the base of the lens mount with two fully galvanically isolated circuits, which permit the use of two flash systems (dual flash);
- A redesigned shutter, which is even quieter and vibration-free;
- Additional (+/-)-symbols in the view finder for signalling under- or over exposure;
- New non-slip grip surface.
Shutter: Mechanically controlled vertical-moving metal-blade focal plane shutter.
Viewfinder Fixed eye-level viewfinder with Fresnel lens with micro prism and split-image rangefinder as focusing screen, needle metering indication with (+/-)-symbol.
Film transport/Frame counter: Quick-release lever, Pentacon Loading-System, fold-out rewind crank, auto-zeroing frame counter.
Metering System: TTL-metering using stopped-down metering controlled by a switch beside the lens mount above the shutter release knob.
