The electronically controlled vertical travelling focal-plane shutter has speed of 30s to 1/2000 of a sec. with a flash sync of 1/90. The program exposure mode contains 5 separate modes including portrait, landscape, close-up, sport and night portrait. The metering is TTL based on a silicon photo cell with a range of 4 to 20 EV (ISO 100, f/1.4). It can use DX encoded films with speeds of 25 to 5000 ISO. Non-DX films will use the previous films ISO setting. A electronic self-timer mode is available with a delay of 10 seconds.
The film transport is motorized with film advance settings of single or a continuous drive speed of up to 1fps. Rewinding the film is automatic at the end of the roll, but a manual rewind is also possible before the end of the roll. The built-in flash has a GN of 12. Flash modes include auto, auto red eye, fill flash, fill flash red eye, and flash off. An AF illumiator is also on the flash, that enables more precise focusing in darker conditions. The camera is powered by two CR2 battery.
