The only changes in this camera are those required to add the Selenium meter. Controls for the meter are integrated into the knob that was the film reminder in the original Iskra. Next to it on the top deck is a curved meter window. The rangefinder windows are combined with the CDS cell in a black frame on the top front deck. (source: www.commiecameras.com)
