The TV 2 is also known as the Leotax (Merit). It is similar to the Leotax FV, with the exception of the top speed (1000 on the FV). Like the FV, it had a number of of other changes, when compared to earlier models. The shutter release button is now located at the front of the top plate and film rewind is by folding crank (rewind is selected by rotating the collar around the shutter release button).

There is a film type indicator in the film advance lever. The film counter is in a small window in front of the advance lever, whilst there is a circular window behind the release button which enables film advance to be monitored.

Synchronization is provided, for X only.
