Operating + Sounds
Fairly good size and brightness is a little dim but this works great.
Match needle for the light meter.
Horizontal traveling cloth curtain.
Very nice and solid
Look and feel:
Nice looking camera and also quite the nice feel.
Nice quality camera which is somewhat smaller and lighter than most similar SLRs from the 70s.
Light meter is powered by a mercury battery.
It lacks any mirror lock which can be good for longer exposures and the mirror don't get up first when you use the self-timer.
But the mirror and shutter don't cause that much vibrations so this is not a bigger problem.
Build quality and feel
All mechanical and battary is is only for the light meter.
Mercury battery for the light meter
