Image size on this model is 24x36mm.

Diopter adjustment is achieved by rotating the ring around the eyepiece on the back of the camera. Flash synchronization is provided via a socket on the back.

The top plate engraving of this camera is shown below.

This is the second version, which appeared from the middle of 1955. Before this, the rear of the top plate was engraved C.K.S. for the maker (Chiyoda Kogaku).
