The Revueflex 3000 SM is a rebadging by Foto-Quelle the the Chinon CX II, although this camera's round eyepiece resembles that of the earlier CX. It accepts 42mm screw lenses and a halfway press on the shutter release activates stop down light metering. Its CdS meter requires power from a 1.35 volt mercury cell, unfortunately no longer available. (When voltage is sufficient, a press on the battery-test button will illuminate a lamp inside the viewfinder eyepiece.) However the shutter operates mechanically, over a range of 1/1000 to 1 second with flash sync at 1/125.
