Like every BAUER: According to test and info of the instruction manual it can only meter 40 and 160 ASA in artificial light with the corresponding 25 and 100 ASA in daylight.

(According to German manual, this one model reads ANY speed between 40 AND 160ASA, not only those two. Discuss on talk page!)

The original, unmodified camera can not run the Ektachrome 64T automatically.

Modification see:

Warning: do not change sensitivity generally! In this case the 25/40/100/160 ASA films will be underexposed!

Porst relabeled and sold this model as the Porst Sound 850 XL Macro.
