The fourth generation guide a shadowy existence under the predominance of the new Praktica B-models. Although, the stop of the production of M42x1 screw mount cameras was planned, the production must be continued to supply the demand of the domestic and international markets.

In these context the cheap lines which using the stopped-down metering were further developed whereas no further production was continued for the models which using the metering with open aperture (PLC 3, VLC 3, EE 3).

The following changes were realized:
bulletnew field lens with triple rangefinder wedge, truncated microprism screen, groundglass field
bulletsmooth, unruffled leatherette with stampings

Together with other finish-versions 11 models were developed.. Peculiarly, approximately 1,8 million cameras of this generation were produced, plainly the proof of the success of this screw mount camera generation.

The last screw mount Praktica was delivered in December 1989.

The following modifications of the basic types were produced:

Cameras with black finish of the metal components of the cover:
