Review by Matt's camera classic:

Impressive features: rugged construction, fast glass, awesome shutter. The Copal Metal Square is my favorite mechanical shutter, it’s more dependable than rain on a holiday. Decades later they are strong and accurate, any camera that has one is in my opinion a cut above the rest, which makes cameras like this such a bargain. read more.
