The visual ~s are two small red windows, similar to those used on the much loved box brownie of many yester years. There is a slide to close the red windows when not being used.
The M2 lacked the self-resetting film ~ of its predecessor.
The top of the body featured three controls plus a window to show the film ~. Two dials were used to focus the lens from eight inches to infinity and to adjust shutter speeds between 1/2 and 1/1000 second. The lens's aperture remained fixed at f/3.5, so shutter speeds alone were used to control exposure.
- Consult your manual to see how many pictures will fit on your chosen size of card or simply plug the card into the camera and see what the ~ says. Better yet, crank off a bunch of pictures for a real world test.
Check that the flashgun fires when the shutter is released, thus exposing the leader of the film - usually the first two or three frames before the ~ registers '1'. This is also an excellent opportunity to observe the flash recycle time.
A small and rather dim LCD data display is located to the right of the shooting mode dial. It displays aperture, shutter speed. ISO, exposure and flash compensation, auto bracketing, metering mode, remote control and battery data plus a ~.
