The only function powered by a battery is the light meter which has ISO settings up to 6400. A solidly constructed metal housing contributes to the reputation for durability and reliability the camera has earned.

Other features include a a depth of field preview lever, self time, threaded PC sync socket, multiple exposure capability, and prism mounted hot shoe with viewfinder ready light indicator for certain compatible Nikon speedlights.
