This beautiful camera gives off an impression of lightness and thinness.
It is a member of fixed lens and central shutter camera’s club.

Well made, apparently reliable (the shutter seems accurate despite of its age), the body is adorned with a nice suit. My own camera’s cell seems slightly lazy, but there is a hand is the finder that indicates good exposure. To be right, I guess that it indicates under-exposure only: when I set the diaphragm to f/2, this hand remains on the index. To be checked up...

A hole drilled on the body side allows securing an accessory shoe.
