Shutter cocking - independent of rewinding the film. A mechanism for protecting against multiple exposures of one frame is provided: after the shutter is released, the shutter button is locked until the film rewind knob is rotated by a certain angle. At the same time, the shutter can be lowered not with a button on the camera body, but with a lever on the shutter, and thus get a multi-exposure.
There are two tripod jacks - on the camera and on the front cover. They allow you to mount the camera on a tripod, respectively, horizontally or vertically. In addition, the front cover has a folding leg, which allows you to put the camera vertically on any flat surface.
