Praktica B Flash

 The first PB cameras didn't have any kind of flash dedication. The Praktica BC1 came with a new flash system, it provided flash ready indication in the viewfinder.
 When the Praktica BX20 was introduced Pentacon incorporated for the first time a TTL flash system. It used Olympus technology, the Praktica flash system is identical to the Olympus OM flash system.
 Prakticar and Olympus OM flash units are fully compatible.
