Shutter is from 1/8 to 1/500 of a sec. The automatic exposure system is based on a CdS photocell which has a range of 6 to 17 EV (ASA 100). Film speed is adjusted with a dial on the left to the lens, from 25 to 1000 ASA.
The viewfinder has a magnification 0.46x with a bright frame along with parallax markings for closer 1 to 1.2m subjects. In the center is the auto focus zone, the bottom has zone focus symbols indicators with single person, couple and mountain. A flash indicator is also in the lower right, blinking means there is insufficient light and flash needs to be used. Film advance and rewind are motorized.

To rewind the camera, you need to switch on the "rewind" switch located at the bottom of the camera.
