-All mechanical shutter:
1/500s to 1/30s and Bulb
-Flash sync (1/30 sec)
-viewfinder with a built in rangefinder
Its fairly dark and small.
It's an approximation of a 50mm field of view.
All metal and built like a rock.
Uses Leicas old M39 screw mount.
This is as manual as its gets so this is far from a camera for everyone.
But you can learn allot from this becouse it so basic and it really forces you to think befor shoot.
It has a shutter that can be changed before you cocking the shutter.
Somthing you can´t do with all old Zorki cameras (example Zorki4)
You also have a normal wind lever instead of this little knob which I like but I know some prefer the knob.
One thing I don´t like is the tripod screw mount which is to the very edge.
This makes the camera very side heavy and I don´t see any reason why thay diden´t put it in the middle.
This is a great camera if you want a basic rangefinder.
I really like the feel of this and its fun to use but its not a camera for everyone.
Looks great and have a nice feel to use
Few shutter times
Small and dark viewfinder
