A basic camera with a sturdy metal body, it has a single shutter speed, a fast Enna Correlar 80 mm f/2.9 lens, a flash PC socket, and a focus range of 1-10 meters and infinity. It's worth noting that its lens is collapsible to make it more compact but should be unlocked before use, or else the shutter won't fire.
