Some source say that this camera will need 2x 1.35v batteries for the lightmeter?
Nearly the same base as other Nizo´s: 480, 481, 560, 561, 800, 801
Some modified Nizo´s do not need lightmeter batteries: all ADAMS64 models 480, 481, 560, 561, 800, 801 (including macro) some models with new socket and cable for sync sound recorder - for using only 6 x 1.5V AA batteries without any PX625: http://www.film.project-consultant.net
Relatively large heavy camera with a big Schneider zoom. Same as 801 but with a macro facility. The lens is easily scratched and prone to flare as the glass is right at the front of the lens. Always use a lens hood (72mm filter thread).
One of the few Super 8 cameras with a variable shutter and automatic time exposure but there is no frame counter.
