The camera is retro in that it looks like a rangefinder film camera of many years ago it is a all metal construction and has a full size APS-C sensor with a dual optical and electronic viewfinder.
The camera can be used on A (automatic) setting but I prefer to use the all manual setting either shutter priority or aperture priority a must if you want to get your DOF (depth of field) right.
Lens is F2 and fixed focal length of just short of wide angle about 35mm in a 35mm camera format no zoom then and no image stabilisation. Zoom is with your feet and because the ISO will go to 3200 and higher it always sets a fast shutter speed to minimise shake.
