Traduction de Manuel M

The LA-20 is the advanced version of the LA-10, i.e. that the 35 mm lens (which remains fixfocus) passes from a maximum aperture 4.5 to 3.8.

That remains compact basic, very out of plastic and at all automatic, but ecological since the LA20 requires only two piles AA to feed the flash.
The advance of film and the cocking take place by a knurled button, and rewinding is obviously manual, with a crank (disengaging of the training by push rod under the sole).
When the sliding part who protects the lens is closed, he discovers on his line a cursor of adjustment of the sensitivity to two positions: 100/200 and 400 ISO. When it is opened, one sees under the lens another cursor which orders the charge of the flash.

All that is so simple that I was going to forget to mention that there is also a button on the top, to start…
