The Cosina Hi-Lite EC is a SLR camera body for 35mm film. It has a depth-of-field preview function that's triggered by pressing the shutter release button halfway. This function is also needed to determine the shutter speed with help of the TTL meter. To regain a bright viewfinder image the button for temporary aperture reopening has to be pressed.

The viewfinder screen has a focusing aid in its center. The left side of the finder image shows the needle and the shutter speed scale of the meter which includes a rectangular battery control mark.
