Optical System

Reflex viewfinder with light captured through swivelling prism mounted in front of the shutter. Misadjustment-proof ground glass on prism itself. Adjustable eyepiece: ± 5 diopters. Magnification: 13X. Rubber eyecup, directional and can be folded over. Viewfinder light trap. Field of view corresponding to super 16mm projection field. TV frame 11.75 x 6.30mm. Extremely rugged bayonet lens mount, with built-in filter holder. Bearing on three small tongues. Centering diameter: 60mm. Focal flange distance: 23.22mm. Most C-mount lenses easily adapted.

Light Meter

High performance, built-in light meter. Through-the-lens measurement of the light by a cell which fits in front of the filming aperture while the diaphragm is being set. Instant reaction, linear characteristic silicon cell, for electronic processing of the data: film sensitivity, filming speed, exposure of the cell. It has no memory and is practically insensitive to blinding, ageing and variations in temperature. Sensitivity range: 25 to 1600 ASA (15 to 33 DIN) with automatic coupling at all filming speeds. The silicon cell is "adapted" to the spectral sensitivity of the film by an optical filter. Measurement of the light in the centre of the field of view over about 35% of the picture area. Manual operation of the diaphragm setting ring, the correct opening being set by balancing the brilliance of the two light-emitting diodes located in the viewfinder. Possibility of detecting an over - or under - exposure of 1 stop. supplied with:

  • 1 x NiCd-battery 12V / 0.8 Ah
  • 1 x Charger 240V
  • 1 x Electric release cable
  • 1 Set of 4 filter holders
