Its got an EM on the top where the pop up flash would be on a DSLR... Appears to be fairly automatic although it's got a M90 mode and a B (Bulb I'm assuming) along with the AUTO mode. Has ASA adjustment on the left (when looking through the camera) and a few other buttons that I have no idea what they do. Manual focus, manual aperature, camera sets the shutter speed for you. Has some sort of metering dealy bopper on the inside of the view finder that shows what shutter speed you'll be shooting with the other given things set (aperture and ASA). Got it for 20 bucks with an E series 50mm 1.8. I figure the lens is worth that... now what is it?
