-All mechanical shutter:
1/1000s to 1s and Bulb
-Flash sync (1/60 sec)
-Through the lens exposure metering system
Great viewfinder, it's big and bright.
Like a rock and every thinga have a really nice feel to it.
Uses M42 screw mount.
You can find hole range of old nice lenses for this.
One of the best m42 cameras you can find!
Great viewfinder, solid as a rock and it just feels great to use.
Not too heavy also.
Light meter works good with today's batteries but these old light meters don't work well in low light situations.
You can't get a reading if you need 1/2 sec or more but I find it somewhat unreliable metering from around 1/30 - 1/15 sec.
