The History of the Pentacon Six

The Pentacon Six TL – M

Date(s): ? – 1987 – ?

A Pentacon Six TL – M with its warranty papers, which are dated 07 87”.
Note that this camera has the smooth shutter release button found on later cameras.

The “Pentacon Six m” “space camera” should not be confused with a late modification of the Pentacon Six TL: the “Pentacon Six TL – M” microscope camera.  This camera had no viewfinder and no mirror, being designed for use exclusively in a static location on a microscope.  As such, it was, in fact, not a single lens reflex camera.
