Autopak 550 uses cartridge 126. It two-speed (1/90 and 1/45 second). The lens is Rokkor 2,8/38 mm with 4 elements in 3 groups.
A Cds cell controls the exposure; it is above the lens. When the subject is insufficiently enlightened, the shutter speed is reduced to the 1/45 second for the flash. On the right side of the camera, is a marked serrated roller of three icons " Zone éloignée ", “Zone moyenne” and “Gros plans”. The choice is recalled in the finder. When the light is too weak, a red reference mark appears in the finder indicating that the recourse to the flash is necessary.
