Triple program modes
Three program modes include high-speed and ‘dual’. The latter automatically sets faster shutter speeds with longer lenses, to reduce the risk of blurring from camera-shake.
The mode dial enables easy switching between program and aperture-priority, as well as manual shutter speeds between 1 sec and 1/2000 sec, plus Bulb.
At the base of the camera is a compartment for four AAA batteries, for the F501’s metering and AF systems, as well as its motor-drive for film transport.
