Electronic modifications available: new socket and cable for sync sound recorder - for using only 6 x 1.5V AA batteries without any PX625:


This is a development of the Nizo S 800 with the "automatic B" added. This sets the camera running on single frames at a rate controlled by a sensitive CDS light meter with a window above the lens and designed for very low light conditions.

There is no macro focussing. This was provided by the 801 Macro model which superseded the 801.

Some 801's are painted black.
