A camera with next to everything one could want in a m42 SLR.
Very reliable metal shutter, mirror lock, good viewfinder, good light meter and batteries that can be easly found today.
This is also one of the earlier cameras with electronically controlled shutter.
The advantage with this is that thay usually have a more exact exposure then a mechanical but the camera must also have a working battery in order to be used.
It takes a V28 PX 6v silver battery which can easily be found today.
