Manual Control of Aperture
By pressing the stopped down functioning lever and
turning the preset aperture ring, the diaphragm can be
closed down to any f/stop and the depth of field at the
time of shutter release can be checked. When the lever is
reset to its original position, the diaphragm again returns

r The aperture is manually stopped down also when performing close-up photography and macrophotography.

Meter
Using
Canon FTb provides the most accurate light measurement
possible with its unique TTL (Through-The'Lens) system.
The built-in exposure meter, which is of match needle type,
is coupled to the ASA film speed scale, shutter speed dial
and preset aperture ring.
The CdS photocell of the exposure meter is placed in the
closest position to the beam-splitting condenser lens. The
central area metering system enables accurate measurement of the main subiect even in counterlight.
The rectangular frame in the viewfinder represents the
light measurement area of the CdS photocell. Place the
main subject within this frame and measure the intensity
of light so as to obtain the proper exposure.
I The correction of the full aperture opening of the lens is
performed automatically. Therefore, the operation does
not change regardless of the speed of the lens used. An
FL lens can be used only with stopped'down metering.
r Due to the characteristics of the CdS photocell, the
movement of the meter needle may occasionally become
slack, owing to changes in the degree of light.
I Metering at "B" on the shutter speed dial is not possible
with the built-in exposure meter, because " B " is used for
long exposures over one second.
I Always use a lens hood when shooting against the

All Canon FD and FL lenses, which have FD and FL mounts,
can be used with the Canon FTb, except the FLP 38mm
F 2.8.
I lt is also possible to attach and use all Canon R lenses
for Canonflex use. However, as the preset aperture mecha'
nism differs, pictures must be taken by controlling the
aperture manually.

When taking off the lens c?p, push in the lock on both
sides of the lens. When attachingthe lens cap, do the same
thing. The lens cap can also be attached on filters which
have inner threads.

With some exceptions of standard and wide-angle lenses, a

attach the lens hood onto the lens in inversedorder and align
it to the bayonet ring and turn counterclockwise.

Fixing Mirror Upwards
In performing photomicrography,the Canon FTb can be
operatedwith the mirror locked in an upward position after
the picture has been composedin the viewfinder,in order to
e l i m i n a t em i r r o r v i b r a t i o n .
To lock the mirror in an upward position, push down the
stopped-downf unctioning lever and the lever lock to " M ".
The aperture is now stopped-downand controlledmanually.
The mirror can be locked independentlyfrom film advance
and shutter speed operations.
When the mirror is locked in an upward position, SLR viewing is not possible,and distance must be estimated by eye.
When the mirror is locked, always keep the lens covered.
The film will sometimes becomefoggy if the lens cap is not
attached.
r After the mirror lock device has been used, be sure to
return the mirror lock lever to its original position. Failure
to do this will result in inaccuratefocusing.
r When Canon Lens FL 19mm F 3.5 is used, the mirror
should be fixed, and combinedusageof the exclusiveviewfinder to this lens becomesnecessary.
