Automatic exposure setting, through-sighting system, zoom lens - all these components give Lada an advantage both over the western counterparts and in domestic competition.
The main objective of the camera was a high-performance "PF-2" (R = 9-37 mm, Relative hole - 1: 1,7), which was a multi-lens optical system. The focal length is changed by moving two kinetically components of the lens, both when the camera is stopped and during shooting.
The lens has a remote ring for focusing, the limits of which start from 1 meter. When shooting with changing R, the depth of field also changes.
The through-sight system with variable magnification 0.5x - 2x is implemented directly through the lens. It removes a part of the rays with a mirror-prism system, which excludes parallax during filming. The field of view of the viewer is greater than the field of view of the lens, which allows you to see objects near the object being shot and facilitates the process of composing the frame. Dioptric correction of the eyepiece of the viewfinder - +/- 5
The aperture in the movie camera "Lada" is set both automatically and manually (by turning the diaphragm lever).
The main elements of the automatic system are a galvanometer, a sulphide-cadmium photoresistor and a battery for supplying an electrical circuit. To make corrections to the automatic aperture setting system, there is a correction mechanism.
The Lada movie camera is charged with standard 2 x 8 mm reels, the useful capacity of which is 7.5 meters. The possibility of repeating the survey on the same track is excluded. The uniformity of sharpness in the movie frame is enhanced by the alignment of the film in the exposure window. Also in the Lada camera system there is a clamshell mechanism counting frame and film footage. The camera drive is spring-loaded. For eight turns of the key is able to stretch up to 2.7 meters of film. The mechanism of the film rewind was 50 frames.
The shooting frequency is 8,16,24 and 48 frames per second. In the camera "Lada" is provided and the mode of time-lapse photography.

    Il mio giudizio sulle informazioni riguardanti la spedizione degli oggetti data da catawiki è del tutto negativo, pagato posta normale 32 euro e dopo 21 giorni non so niente del pacco.
