To do this turn the focusing knob until the appropriate distance on the telephoto scale nanual opposite T-index mark Divide this guide number by the distance; that gives you the aperture number to use.

They are, however, mainly intended as a guide; you can, of course, hold the camera in other ways, too. Neither the rapid-winding lever nor the release button will work further.

When one selects a faster shutter speed, the aperture-speed coupling automatically opens the lens aperture. Adjusting the aperture to a smaller stop alters the shutter setting to a slower speed, thus keeping the exposure constant all the time, If you want to set the exposure without reference to the light value, make sure that you adjust first the shutter speed and then the aperture. If you do it the other way round, the aperture-speed coupling would alter the aperture when setting the shutter speed. To set the shutter speed, turn the shutter speed ring, until the required speed figure is opposite the shutter speed Index mark To change the aperture, pull the light value setting lever 26 slightly outwards and move it to the required value on the aperture scale
