Rolleiflex 6008 AF
Rolleiflex 6008 integral2
For the hurried reader, there are
introductory brief instructions.
Congratulations on your new Rolleiflex
6008. We appreciate your patronage and
trust that your new camera will give you
outstanding service for many years to
come.
These are followed by a detailed description with pictures of all important aspects
of the camera, guiding you step by step
from assembling the basic camera modules right up to removing the exposed
film.
Your Rolleiflex 6008 has been designed
for professional use. It is ideally suited for
creative use in fashion, people and action
photography as well as in architectural and
industrial applications.
This in turn is followed by a number of
practical tips and additional information
on the workings of your camera as well as
its major accessories.
A tabular annex gives all important data of
our line of interchangeable lenses.
In the case of operating errors – which
even an experienced photographer might
make in the heat of a shoot or after prolonged non-use of the camera – a trouble-shooting guide will help you locate
possible causes and find a way to correct
them. All parts numbers in the text and
the illustrations stand for one and the
same part and can be looked up in the
two picture plates.

CHARGING THE BATTERY
..............................................................................
77
a

d
e
Charging the battery
Plug the power-supply cable a into the AC
terminal b of the charger and connect it
to the AC supply. The green LED indicates
readiness. All normal AC voltages and frequencies are suitable:
» 100V – 240V AC, 50 Hz – 60 Hz.
The power-supply unit has protective insulation and conforms to the pertinent
EU safety regulations. It comes with a
1.25amp slow-blow fuse. Its outputs (battery pins, terminals) are protected against
short circuits due to defective batteries
or metallic objects. Battery temperature is
monitored and limited.
Note:
Be sure to prevent bare metallic objects
from entering the battery slot and use the
unit exclusively in a dry environment.
22
b
Place battery 8 with its contacts onto the
pins in the charger slot. Rapid charging
will start after about 2 s, and the red LED
glows. Cutoff voltage and battery temperature are monitored during charging.
At the cutoff voltage, the unit switches
to trickle charge. If the battery voltage
exceeds the admissible maximum, the red
LED will go out and rapid charging is interrupted until the temperature is back to
normal.
Trickle charging is in progress when the
green and red LEDs are blinking. This
makes up for the spontaneous discharge
of the battery so that the latter may be left
in the charger over prolonged periods.
Ambient temperature: approx. 5°C to
35°C. The overall duration of the charging
cycle depends on battery condition. After
normal discharge, about one hour or less
is sufficient.
..............................................................................
CHARGING FROM CAR BATTERY
..............................................................................
d
e
Note:
Charging from car battery
If you wish to resume rapid charging after
trickle charge has started, briefly lift the
battery off the contacts and replace it: The
one-hour timer starts, and rapid charging
is resumed.
Connect the car‘s lighter socket to the
low-voltage terminal d of the charger.
Normal charging from a 12V car battery
will take about 14 hours. The two LEDs
will remain off.
If the battery is very hot – red LED off with
battery in place –, rapid charging can be
started only after it has cooled down.
Additional power supply
An external device running on 12 VDC
with a maximum of 500 mA can be connected to the 3.5 mm jack e of the
charger. The green LED signals readiness.
The maximum admissible length of the
connecting cable is 2 m.
..............................................................................
23
BATTERY STATUS
..............................................................................
77
Battery status
With the camera switched on, battery
status is monitored automatically.
The following display appears:
» for full or sufficient capacity
,
» for partial discharge
,
» blinking
for very low capacity
(sufficient only for a few additional
shots).
24
When the display reads “CHArGE“, the
camera will switch off. If possible, keep a
fully charged spare battery ready.
It is advisable to recharge the battery as
soon as the icon
starts blinking,
above all at low temperatures. Use of the
external battery connector – which allows
the battery to be carried close to your
body – also is very helpful at low ambient
temperatures.
..............................................................................
CHANGING BATTERIES
..............................................................................
77
Note:
Changing batteries
To avoid premature discharging of the battery, be sure to reset master switch 1 to
“off“ after using the camera.
Push tab 77 up and remove discharged
battery 8. Insert the recharged battery
with its tab pointing down into the battery
slot. Firmly press down the tab until it
engages.
For technical reasons, Nicad batteries will
slowly discharge even if they are not
used. To ensure instant readiness of your
camera, be sure to recharge the battery
every two to three months.
Note:
Always switch your camera off before
changing batteries to keep exposure settings in memory.

Changing fuses
Attaching the handgrip
Remove battery and pull fuse 9 out of
its holder. The open slide 39 exposes the
spare fuse 38. Press this down into the
holder so that it clicks into place. Close
slide 39.
To avoid unintentional shutter tripping
when attaching the grip, set the master
switch to “off“. Turn shutter-speed dial
23 to < > and hold it in this position.
Insert holding pin 66 of grip 21 fully
into the opening in the shutter-speed dial.
Let go of the dial so that it resets from its
< > position.
Suitable fuses – 1.25amp/250V, slow-blow
– are commercially available.
To avoid damage to the camera, never use
fuses of higher rating!
Should the spare fuse blow too, try to
locate the cause (e.g. film-loading error,
especially film running off the spool; film
torn at low temperature or come off paper
leader.) If the trouble cannot be located,
please contact Rollei Service.
26
22
The grip is now fixed to the camera. To
remove the grip, proceed in the reverse
order.
..............................................................................
CHANGING THE GRIP POSITION
..............................................................................
65
Changing the grip position
Adjusting the wrist strap
The grip has four click stops that ensure
convenient holding of the camera with the
waist-level finder, the 45° prism finder and
the 90° eye-level finder.
Loosen the strip on the buckle and adjust
it so that the camera can be held safely
with only your right hand.

Loading and changing film inserts
Pull the grip of the magazine‘s laminar
drawslide 49 all the way in the direction
of the arrow “magazine change/remove
insert“. Press release buttons 34 and
48, swing the magazine back down and
remove film insert 57. The recesses in the
back make removal very easy. If necessary,
briefly press the empty spool with one
finger to loosen the insert.
Pull red tab 55 outwards, insert the film
spool according to icon 58 (black side
of paper facing inside) and engage the
tab. Thread the film leader straight into
empty spool 28 and use advance flange
59 to wind it up tight until the arrow on
the paper backing is properly aligned with
index 29. Slip the film-box tab into memo
holder 56 (on side of film spool).

The camera comes with a film insert
inside. Unless you use interchangeable
magazines, which are even more practical,
it is advisable to keep several film inserts
ready for prolonged shoots. The inserts
can be preloaded and are easy to carry.
The same type of insert can be used for
size 120 and 220 roll film (not the same
type of magazine, though!).
The empty film spool from the last roll
need not be changed – it will accept the
leader of the new film without repositioning. This is a special benefit of the symmetrical insert that fits the film-advance
system even when it is turned through
180°. If the new film is of different speed
or type, also change the film tab in the
memo holder, and reset the film speed on
dial 37.

Note:
Loading film inserts
At subzero temperatures it is not advisable
to preload the film inserts. Instead, it is
preferable to load the film directly from
its box and advance it to frame 1. Due to
the cold, the glue holding the film on the
paper leader will get brittle and might give
rise to film-advance problems.
Open the magazine back as described
before and load the insert so that the film
spool coincides with the icon
, the
empty spool with

insert the film edges beneath the spring
clips c. Simply leave them on top. As the
film is wound on automatically, it will pass
below the clips on its own.
Close the back until it engages and pull
the grip fully down to cancel the release
lock. Set the master switch to “S“ and
briefly press shutter release 20 or 24: The
film will automatically advance to the first
frame, and the frame counter 51 will read
“1“. Should this not be the case – which
does happen from time to time with certain makes of film –, press the shutter
release once more.

FILM ADVANCE
..............................................................................
1
31
Switching the camera on and off
Single frames
With its master switch 1 set to “off“, the
camera circuits are dead, and the camera
cannot be inadvertently activated by operating one of its controls.
With the master switch set to “S“, a single
frame will be exposed whenever the shutter release is pressed. For another exposure, first release the button, then press it
again.
After setting the camera to one of the
film-advance modes “S“ (single frames),
“C“ (continuous shooting) or “S±“ (bracketing), it can be activated with the aid of
the memo button, one of the shutter buttons, the stop-down button or the mirrorlockup button. As long as the camera is
inactive, the display will remain blank.
In its default setting (that can be changed
with MasterWare), the camera remains
active for 40 seconds. The use of any of its
controls will extend this period by another
40 seconds. In the multi-spot mode and
when the memo button is locked in, the
camera will remain active for an additional
four minutes.
Continuous shooting
With the master switch set to “C“,
the camera will expose one frame after
another for as long as the shutter release
is kept depressed. The maximum shooting
speed is about two frames per second (fps)
at normal temperature (20°C), with a full
battery and at shutter speeds faster than
1/250 s.
..............................................................................
35
BRACKETING
..............................................................................
Bracketing
Set the master switch to “S±“. The camera
will then take a limited number of pictures, automatically applying a certain
exposure compensation. For more details
about this exposure mode, see “Automatic
bracketing“ on page 53.
Silent operation
(default setting of custom function)
Film advance is quieter, but slower as well.
The shooting rate in continuous shooting
will then drop to about one frame per
second. Should the “silent operation“
custom function not be programmed on
switch 31, see “Custom functions“.
Note:
Limiting the length of continuous
bursts
This mode serves to limit the number of
frames exposed during continuous shooting. First, apply the limiting function “SF
Coun“ to switch 31 – see “Custom functions“. The function will be activated as
soon as switch 31 is turned on.
The default setting is two exposures. This
may be varied with the aid of MasterWare.
When the maximum number of exposures
has been taken, release the shutter button
so that it can be pressed again.
The picture series can be interrupted at
any time by simply releasing the shutter
button. The number of pictures set can
then again be exposed in the next following sequence.
When using a type 4560 magazine, the
quiet-operation custom function is not
available.
36
..............................................................................
FOCUSING
..............................................................................
26
Focusing (6008 AF)
Switch 26 serves to select either single AF,
continuous AF or manual focusing.
Focus detection is activated by slight
depression of the shutter release. Only
upon full depression of one of the two
shutter buttons will the camera expose the
frame. To avoid unintentional exposure, it
is recommended that you first acquaint
yourself with the two operating stages of
the shutter release before you load a film.
The AF module of the camera normally
detects focus with three separate sensors,
the central one responding above all to
vertical patterns, the two lateral ones to
horizontal patterns. For spot autofocus,
the two lateral sensors can be disabled
using the menu mode (see “Custom
functions).
When shooting from a tripod without
using the viewfinder, for example, the
focusing hood should be closed, or a prism
finder should be used. Swung up, the
magnifier may enhance the effect of stray
light like a burning glass.
When a manually focusing lens is attached
and the focus-mode switch set to “sing“
or “cont“ for autofocusing, the camera
will respond as if it were set to manual
focusing. However, if you wish to use the
AF system for focus detection, press the
shutter release slightly.
Both autofocusing and manual focusing
with the aid of the ranging system will
work only with lenses with an effective
maximum aperture of at least f/5.6. This
should be noted above all when using a
teleconverter or close-up accessories.
Notes:
To avoid ranging errors, keep stray light
away from the focusing screen!
..............................................................................

FOCUSING
..............................................................................
Focusing (6008 integral2)
Turn ring 71 to focus image on the screen.
The focusing distance can be read off in m
or ft against the index 17. Depth of field
can be checked against the aperture scales
to each side of the distance index 17. For
infrared photography read off the focused
distance and set it against the red index on
the depth-of-field scale. All lenses focus at
full aperture.
38
..............................................................................
AUTOFOCUSING/6008 AF
..............................................................................
Single AF (6008 AF)
Continuous AF (6008 AF)
Make sure that the subject to be focused
coincides with a focus area (see illustration) on the ground glass and slightly
depress the shutter release. The lens will
now be focused automatically, and only
the central component of the focus indicator will appear in the display. To repeat
focusing, simply release the shutter button
and press it once more to its first stage.
Contrary to single AF, the autofocus
system is here active for as long as the
shutter release is held down to its first
stage. The lens will refocus should the subject leave the focus position.
If all three components of the focus indicator are blinking, focusing is impossible. In
this case, place the focus area on a more
contrasty and better textured detail at the
same distance and focus on this. If necessary, focus manually.
This focus mode is based on release priority. The shutter can thus be released at any
desired moment, regardless of the focus
status. In all other respects, this mode is
identical to single AF.
Single AF is based on focus priority. In
other words, the shutter will release only
after focusing has been achieved.
..............................................................................
39
MANUAL FOCUSING
..............................................................................
Manual focusing (6008 AF)
To focus, turn ring 71. Check focus status
either on the ground glass or with the aid
of the focus indicator, placing the focus
area (see illustration) on the subject to be
focused.
Keep turning ring 71 until only the central
part of the focus indicator appears. Arrows
indicate in which direction the ring should
be turned. (See the table below.)
Display
Optimum focus
If all three components of the focus indicator are blinking, focusing with the ranging
system is impossible. In this case, place
the focus area on a more contrasty and
better textured subject detail at the same
distance.
Note:
Coarse manual prefocusing is required
with lenses of longer than 180mm focal
length, since ranging errors are then possible for technical reasons.

1023
44
Center-weighted multi-zone metering
Seven silicon photodiodes located behind
the partially transmitting reflex mirror
meter the light through the lens. They are
arranged in five groups and in the default
setting give a center-weighted multi-zone
pattern that normally ensures good results.
Off center, this metering pattern gives
greater weight to the bottom parts of the
frame than to the top (which in scenic
shots will include the sky).
To select this mode, set dial 44 to .
This icon will also appear in the display.
To make allowance for special shooting
conditions, multi-zone metering without
center-weighting can be selected with
switch 31 and the custom function “SF
Cent“ (see “Custom functions“). Centerweighting is then disabled as soon as
switch 31 is turned on. The amount of
center-weighting can be customized using
MasterWare.
..............................................................................
41
SPOT METERING
..............................................................................
42
Spot metering
Multi-spot metering
The central spot-metering sensor (covering
<1% of the frame) may be used to meter
important subject detail in the case of
backlight or high-contrast subjects. Since
this detail rarely coincides with the center
of the frame, the reading can be locked
in by pressing the memo button 27
(see “Memo function“, page 48). On the
standard focusing screen, the spot focus
area is equivalent to the split-image spot.
Setting dial 44 to • will switch the camera
to spot metering. The mode is also displayed in the viewfinder.
In this mode, up to five readings – of
highlights, shadows or mid-tones – can be
taken and locked into memory. The camera‘s computer will then average these. If
necessary, the resulting exposure can be
locked in for several shots.
Multi-spot metering is active in the •••
position of the switch. Separate readings
are taken by pressing the memo button
27. With the memo button depressed,
“1 Spot“ will be displayed for the first
reading for about one second. After that,
the reading will be displayed as a shutter-speed/aperture combination and put
in memory. This may be repeated up to
the fifth reading. When five separate readings have been stored, the multi-spot display will blink. With the memo button
depressed, the averaged exposure will be
displayed as a shutter-speed/aperture combination, while the last reading will appear
in the display when the memo button is
not pressed.
..............................................................................
MULTI-SPOT METERING
..............................................................................
Should the aperture or shutter-speed display be blinking while separate readings
are taken in the multi-spot mode (see
“Exposure metering“), no correction of
any kind is required. The camera will correctly process values outside the metering
range. If the final result is out of range,
it can easily be shifted back by varying
the aperture or shutter speed. To delete
the multi-spot exposure, simply switch to
another exposure mode or briefly switch
the camera off and on again.
In both steps, depression of the one or
two-step* shutter release will display the
average reading that will be used for
exposure.
If you wish to keep this value active
beyond the actual exposure, lock the
memo button during your last spot reading. Otherwise the camera will delete the
averaged exposure value.
Note:
Should no separate reading be stored
in the multi-spot mode, the camera will
respond as in the spot-metering mode.

Set shutter-speed dial 23 to “A“. Release
aperture ring 69 by pressing button 70,
and select the aperture in one-third increments. “A“ will be displayed in the camera
beside the shutter speed. If correct exposure is impossible at the aperture selected
due to existing lighting conditions, the
shutter-speed display will blink, and the
light balance will indicate the deviation
from correct exposure (over a range of ±1
EV in one-third increments). Should the
difference exceed 1 EV, the entire light balance will blink.

at the shutter speed selected due to existing lighting conditions, the aperture display will blink, and the light balance will
indicate the deviation from correct exposure (over a range of ±1 EV in one-third
increments). Should the difference exceed
1 EV, the entire light balance will blink.
Set both the aperture ring and the shutterspeed dial to “A“. “A“ will be displayed
beside the aperture and the shutter speed.
The camera will now automatically select
a suitable shutter-speed/aperture combination. In its default setting, the program
is high-speed biased to keep the risk of
camera shake as small as possible. The
basic shutter speed in the default setting
is 1/125 s.

Any desired shutter-speed/aperture combination can be selected in this mode. Exposure is balanced with either the aperture
or the shutter speed. Correct exposure has
been set when the light balance shows
only the large center line. Departures from
optimum exposure are displayed in 1/3 EV.
Should the difference exceed 1 EV, the
entire light balance will blink.
Set shutter-speed dial 23 to “B“. “bulb“
will appear in the display. In “bulb“, the
shutter will remain open for as long as the
shutter release is kept depressed. Shutterpriority AE is not available in this mode.
Should it be selected after all, the display
will read “no Auto“.
Note:
If “88 8888“ is displayed in an automatic
mode instead of aperture and shutter
speed, with the entire light balance blinking, you have exceeded the metering
range. In metered manual, the aperture
and shutter-speed display will remain visible, and the entire light balance will blink.
If memo button 27 is also locked, “-t-“
will be displayed for T mode. Contrary to
“bulb“, the shutter will now stay open
when the shutter button is released.
To close it, press the shutter release
again. It goes without saying that exposure metering is not possible in either of
these modes.

Note:
With the memo button pressed or locked,
the camera will remain active for an additional four minutes.
48
..............................................................................
STRAY-LIGHT COMPENSATION
..............................................................................
Stray-light compensation
Note:
Stray light entering through the open
focusing hood will be taken into account
during metering and compensated up to
an intensity ratio of approx. 16:1 for stray
light and metered light. This compensation
is independent of the type of viewfinder
used.
Stop-down metering with earlier lenses
and open focusing hood frequently
exceeds the compensation range. This is
why you should take the reading with the
magnifier swung up and your face close to
the magnifier so as to avoid the direct incidence of light on the ground-glass screen.
When viewing the ground glass through
the focusing hood without the magnifier,
be sure to avoid direct exposure of the
focusing screen during metering (e.g. light
sources, above all fluorescent tubes). For
time exposures always close the focusing
hood.

switch the self-timer on or off with switch
31. Start the self-timer by pressing the
shutter release. The timer delay (default 10
s) is displayed in the camera. To stop the
self-timer, turn off switch 31.
To ensure exposure without camera shake,
the mirror will be locked up 2 s before the
actual exposure. This at the same time is
a warning of imminent exposure. With the
aid of MasterWare, the timer delay can be
varied from 1 s to 99 s.

51
MIRROR LOCKUP
..............................................................................
45
73
Mirror lockup
Camera shake is a major problem above
all with long-focus lenses and in close-up
work. A suitable remedy is mirror lockup.
To do this, briefly press knob 73 “mirror“:
The reflex mirror will swing up; then press
the shutter release. The release lag is just a
few milliseconds.
If there was no previous AE lock – by locking memo button 27 or multi-spot metering –, the exposure value determined at
the instant of mirror lockup will be put in
memory.
If no further exposure is desired with
mirror lockup: Set multi-exposure knob
45 to “ME“ (film advance disengaged) and
trigger the camera with its lens capped.
The reflex mirror will swing down again,
and no frame will be lost. Then reset
knob 45 to “SE“.
Note:
In the case of the type 4560 magazine,
film advance is engaged or disengaged
directly on the magazine. See Operating
Instructions of magazine.
After mirror lockup, the camera will
remain active for an additional four minutes. Be sure not to make any exposure
adjustment after mirror lockup because
the exposure meter is then inactive. The
measured values are put in memory if
the camera is switched off via the master
switch or if it turns off on its own.

..............................................................................
AUTOMATIC BRACKETING
..............................................................................
Automatic bracketing
Note:
This mode allows very precise exposure
compensation. It is enabled in both automatic and manual modes and, in its
default setting, will provide a normally
exposed picture plus one overexposed
by 2/3 EV and another one underexposed
by 2/3 EV.
Should the shutter-speed or aperture
range be insufficient for the entire bracketing series, the shutter-speed or aperture
display plus the +/– icon will blink to warn
you.
In addition, there is another bracketing
mode with a compensation of ±1/3 EV.
See “Variable default settings“.
Switch to automatic bracketing by setting
the master switch to “S±“. Keep the
shutter release depressed until the three
exposures have been made. To abort the
series, simply release the shutter button.
The autobracketing series can be shifted

MasterWare allows the user to set bracketing to two to five exposures with an exposure compensation of up to ±9/3 EV for
each of the shots.
54
..............................................................................
MULTIPLE EXPOSURES
..............................................................................
45
Multiple exposures
Note:
Set dial 45 to “ME“ (multiple exposures) to
disengage the film advance so that several
exposures can be superimposed on one
and the same frame. A red square on the
dial serves as an additional warning that
the film advance has been disengaged.
The “ME“ setting is inactive if a type 4560
magazine is used. Film advance will be
disengaged directly on the magazine –
see Operating Instructions of magazine.
Before the last of a multi-exposure
series reset knob 45 to “SE“ (Single
Exposure) and press to re-engage the film
advance for the next-following shot with
normal exposure. Between multiple-exposure shots, you may view your subject in
the viewfinder as usual.
..............................................................................
55
MULTIPLE-EXPOSURE
..............................................................................
A multiple-exposure alternative is the filmadvance custom function (“SF trAn“), see
“Custom functions“. In this case, the film
advance is disengaged electronically, and
the reflex mirror remains locked up after
the first exposure. This means, however,
that viewfinder observation and renewed
exposure metering as well as focusing are
impossible. On the other hand, this form
of multiple exposures allows higher shooting rates, and it is adjustable via MasterWare. To terminate multiple exposure,
either switch 31 off before the last exposure or press the mirror-lockup button 73
after the last exposure.
56
Notes:
In the latter case, serial photography is
impossible. With the master switch set to
“C“, the camera responds as if “S“ had
been set.
For serial photography, MasterWare is
required. This allows up to ten successive
photographs with a minimal delay of 10
ms between individual exposures.
Important:
Magazines must not be changed during a
series of multiple exposures.

FRAME COUNTER
..............................................................................
32
Frame counter
Note:
The frame counter 51 always displays the
number of the frame to be exposed next.
This reading may differ from that of the
magazine frame counter. See “Custom
functions“.
If “S“ is displayed, no film is loaded or the
film is not yet wound up. A “red arrow“
indicates that the film has been would up
but has not reached frame 1; a red area
marks the film trailer or a fully wound film.
When the magazine back is opened, the
frame counter will reset to zero, displaying
“S“ (start).
If a type 4560 magazine is attached, the
camera will always display the reading of
the frame counter. This will agree with the
reading of the magazine frame counter.
In addition, the display will show whether
the magazine is used for horizontal or vertical format.
By activating the custom function “Activate frame counter“, the frame number
can be displayed in 12.
..............................................................................
57
VIEWFINDER DISPLAY
..............................................................................
Additional viewfinder display
The areas of the aperture and shutterspeed display in the viewfinder are used
for additional information as well:
» When the camera is on and the filmspeed setting is changed, “Sn“ (for
sensitivity) will appear in place of the
aperture and the corresponding ISO
value in that of the shutter speed.
» Should the display be found disturbing
in certain uses, it can be switched off. To
do this, apply “Display“ custom function
(“SF diSP“) to switch 31, then switch off
the display by turning on switch 31. The
brightness of the display can be adjusted
with MasterWare.
» If the release lock of the magazine
is still active (laminar drawslide closed
or opened only partially), “SLIde“ will
be displayed. After the film has been
wound up after the last frame, the display will read “End“.
» When the battery is empty, the display
“CHArGE“ will prompt you to recharge
it.
» The intensity of the display illumination
is automatically adjusted for that of the
ambient light (default setting).

ERROR MANAGEMENT
..............................................................................
Error management
The 6008 AF/6008 integral2 have an upto-date self-diagnostic and error-management system. This makes it possible to
diagnose possible malfunctions and helps
correct them.
The following error messages are possible:
» “Error 1“: Inadmissible light leak in
mirror box, no magazine or lens
attached or defective shutter control.
» “Error 2“: Malfunctioning of shutter
or diaphragm. Should this message
appear frequently, check your lens. The
display will also appear when no lens is
attached.
» “Error 3“*: AF electronics malfunctioning. Check your lens if this display
appears frequently.
» “Error 5“: Mirror drive malfunctioning.
Have your camera checked if this display
appears frequently.
» “Error 6“*: Defective AF control. Have
your camera checked if this display
appears frequently.
Note:
In the case of “Error 3“ and “Error 6“*,
the camera will respond like a manually
focusing camera. The error can usually be
corrected by switching the camera off and
on. Should the error message reappear
there-after, check the component concerned.
“Error 8“ and “Error 9“ are error messages that may appear when a digital back
is used. These malfunctions do not concern the camera, but the digital back.
» “Error 4“: Magazine 4560 malfunctioning: No film loaded or film-advance
problem.

Flash photography
Note:
Your Rolleiflex 6008 AF/6008 integral2 are
X-synchronized at all shutter speeds up to
1/500 s (with PQS lenses up to 1/1000
s). Flash units may be connected either
to hot shoe 75 or to flash terminal 74
with its (parallel-connected) standard 3mm
socket. The camera offers the following
flash modes:
Studio flash units may have considerably
longer response time and flash duration
than compact or grip-type units. At shutter
speeds faster than 1/250 s, the flash may
be fired too late and exceed the open time
of the shutter. Please check the instructions supplied with your flash unit.
» Manual flash control (aperture set as a
function of flash distance).
» Dedicated autoflash (TTL flash metering

Setting leading or trailing flash
and sync speed
Manual flash control
without an SCA adapter
Leading or trailing flash can be selected
either with the aid of the Variable Defaults
(see preceding section) or with MasterWare:
Be sure to switch your flash unit off before
connecting it to the hot-shoe contact or
PC terminal. In this case, the camera is
unable to detect the flash and will therefore respond as if no flash were attached.
Set the aperture on the lens according to
the requirements of the flash unit.
» Selecting “1 Syn“: The flash will fire
after the shutter has opened, that is at
the beginning of exposure.
» Selecting “2 Syn“: The flash will fire 3
ms before the shutter closes, that is at
the end of exposure.
Due to the use of between-the-lens
shutters, flash photography is possible at
any shutter speed. At speeds faster than
1/250 s there will be no difference between
leading and trailing sync.
Automatic computer flashes use their
built-in sensor to control flash output for
an aperture selected on the flash unit and
manually transferred to the camera. Simpler types of flash unit will require the aperture to be varied as a function of flash
distance (from a table on the unit). For
details, see the instructions supplied with
your flash unit.
Alternatively, the working aperture
required can also be found using the preflash mode available in manual flash control. See “Preflash mode“.

Flash photography with Rollei
SCA-3562 (or SCA-356)
Dedicated Flash Adapter
In conjunction with dedicated flash units
and the Rollei SCA-3562 (or SCA-356)
Dedicated Flash Adapter, you may use the
TTL flash-metering technique supported by
your camera. To do this, connect the switched-off flash unit with the adapter to the
camera and set it to TTL metering. The
flash sensor incorporated in your camera
will meter the light reflected from the film
surface and control flash output to suit the
film speed and the intensity of ambient
lighting. The result is optimum exposure
68
over a range of ISO 25/15° to 1600/33°.
To ensure proper flash exposure, an
SCA-356 Flash Adapter always has to be
set to ISO 100/21°.
In the case of insufficient flash output,
“Lo“ will appear for a few seconds in the
shutter-speed display of the camera.
If the flash icon blinks in the viewfinder
right after shutter release, the flash is still
being charged. As soon as the blinking
stops, the flash is ready to fire.
..............................................................................
FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
..............................................................................
Note:
The SCA-3562 adapter allows the automatic transmission of the following data
between camera and flash unit:
» The focal length of AF lenses for automatic control of their zoom reflector.
(Note: For technical reasons, the focal
length is converted to 35mm equivalents!)*
When using an SCA-356 adapter, you will
be unable to check whether the flash has
fired with sufficient output. If the upper
film-speed limit for TTL flash metering (ISO
1600/33°) is exceeded, the flash icon and
the film-speed display will blink as a warning.

Autoflash with SCA adapter
in low light
Flash photography with programmed
AE
The light is too low whenever a wider flash
aperture or slower than basic sync speed
would be required for correct exposure.
If there is sufficient light, the system will
respond as described under “Automatic fill
flash with SCA adapter“.
If the light is so low that the flash
aperture range (see following table) would
be exceeded at the basic sync speed of
1/60 s (default), the camera will automatically activate the flash to avoid underexposure.
Flash photography with
aperture-priority AE
If the ambient light is too low for adequate exposure at the preset aperture
and the basic sync speed of 1/60 s, the
camera will automatically activate the flash
to avoid underexposure.
If in flash photography with aperture-priority AE the f-stop is smaller than in the
following table (page 71), the display will
blink as a warning.
Note:
Use wide apertures only at long flash
distances, since proper flash exposure
might be impeded in view of the different
response times of flash units.

FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
..............................................................................
Flash photography with
shutter-priority AE
Select the desired shutter speed. If the
light is low (see following table), the
camera will at first make full use of the
available aperture range. Whatever additional light is then needed for proper
exposure will be provided by the flash. The
aperture range is a function of film speed
and starts with the values given below.

Automatic fill flash with SCA adapter
If there is sufficient light so that no flash

which is evident from the fact that the
flash icon is inactive. However, if you
wish to use flash for fill-in, you may use
one of the following two alternatives, provided that your flash unit does not allow
flash exposure compensation. (See also the
instructions provided by the manufacturer
of your flash unit.)

43
Compensated fill flash
Additive fill flash
To select this fill-flash mode, set the exposure-compensation switch 43 to a value in
the “comp“ range. This will reduce the
effect of the ambient light by the minus
value selected, the flash providing the
remaining light required for proper exposure.
To activate this fill-flash mode, set the
exposure compensation to a value within
the “add“ range. The exposure compensation has no effect on the ambient light.
The flash output is high enough to brighten the subject by the compensation value
set.
Example:
Example:
You have set -1. Ambient-light exposure
will be reduced by one exposure value. The
flash will compensate for the light loss.
You have set +1. The surroundings of your
subject will be rendered naturally, with the
main subject reproduced lighter by one
exposure value.
This is particularly interesting in shots
where the flash has a strong effect on
background exposure (e.g. in interiors).
72
This fill-flash mode is of particular importance for subjects in which the foreground
should be reproduced brighter without the
background being affected by the limited
flash output (e.g. outdoors).
..............................................................................
FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
..............................................................................
Automatic fill-flash
with flash units permitting
flash-exposure compensation
(only with SCA-3562 Adapter)
Your Rolleiflex 6008 AF/6008 integral2 will
automatically detect such a flash unit.
These units permit a variation of the
ratio between flash output and ambient
light intensity. The exposure-compensation
switch 43 affects exclusively the metering
system of the camera and thus the ambient-light exposure. Outside the working
range the shutter-speed/aperture display
will blink in the viewfinder as a warning.
The exposure-compensation switch of the
flash unit, on the other hand, exclusively
affects the flash output.
Examples:
If there is sufficient light and the
two exposure-compensation switches are
zeroed, a normal shot will be taken without flash. The exposure-compensation
switch 43 of the camera allows the exposure to be shifted by the compensation
value set. The flash will not be fired as
long as the exposure-compensation switch
of the flash unit remains set to zero. If
you now set the exposure-compensation
switch of the flash unit to a positive
value, sufficient flash light will be added
to expose the frame with the desired compensation.
Setting the compensation switch of the
flash unit to a negative value makes sense
if you wish to underexpose your flash shot.
Note:
Minor flash-exposure compensation values
close to zero may exceed the TTL metering
range (flash icon and light balance blinking). In this case, choose a larger flashcompensation value or use film with a
speed of ISO 100/21° to 800/27°. All of
the automatic fill-flash techniques cannot
be used with interchangeable magazines
that do not allow any film-speed setting.
..............................................................................
73
FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
..............................................................................
Manual flash control
If you have not selected any of the three
automatic exposure modes (neither shutter-speed dial nor aperture set to “A“),
the exposure will be determined by ambient light and flash output independently
of each other. Exposure by available light
alone may be controlled as described
under “Metered manual“. In addition, the
flash output is controlled by TTL metering.
Without any attempt at exposure compensation, your subject will in this case
be reproduced lighter by 1 EV. To vary
the available-light exposure, change either
your aperture or shutter-speed setting. In
flash units without their own exposure
compensation, flash output can be varied
by changing the position of compensation
switch 43 that in this case will affect exclusively TTL flash metering.
74
If your flash unit does provide for flashexposure compensation, vary flash output
by means of its own exposure-compensation switch. In this case, the exposure
compensation applied by the camera will
affect exclusively the ambient light.
..............................................................................
FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
..............................................................................
Flash bracketing with SCA adapter
Note:
In this mode, the exposure compensation
applied to a bracketing sequence is attained exclusively by a variation of flash
output. For details on the use of this
mode, see “Bracketing“.
In this mode, the exposure range cannot
be shifted with the aid of exposure-compensation switch 43. However, the fillflash mode will remain intact.
To avoid the TTL flash-metering range
from being exceeded, the film speed and
compensation values should be properly
matched.
The limit for negative compensation is ISO
1600/33°, the one for positive compensation is ISO 25/15°. The film speed should
vary from the limit of the measuring range
by at least the amount of the compensation desired.
..............................................................................
75
FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
..............................................................................
Preflash (manual aperture control)
First apply the preflash custom function
(“SF PrE“) to switch 31, then switch this
on. See “Custom functions“. The preflash
mode is based on the spot sensor incorporated in the reflex mirror. Therefore position the subject to be metered in the
center of the focusing screen for optimum
exposure.
Pressing the shutter release will set the
working aperture and initiate a release
cycle without actual exposure or film
advance. The light balance displays the
exposure value determined. Vary the aperture or the flash output and repeat the
preflash until the light is balanced, that is,
until only the large central line is visible.
76
If the reading is away from correct exposure by no more than 1 EV (light balance
should not be blinking!), proper exposure
may be determined without renewed
metering, by simply varying the f-stop.
If the difference exceeds 1 EV, be sure
to repeat the reading, since the metering
range has been exceeded and subsequent
adjustment is impossible. Finally, use
switch 31 to terminate the custom-function setting.
To ensure proper metering, be sure to
avoid stray light on the focusing screen.
Note:
Contrary to TTL flash metering, the preflash mode is restricted to a film-speed
range of ISO 25/15° - 800/27° and is not
available in any of the automatic exposure
modes. In this case, the display will read
“no Auto“.
..............................................................................
PRACTICAL HINTS
..............................................................................
Shooting at low temperature
Below –10°C, it is advisable to separate
the battery from the camera and carry it
close to your body and thus well-protected
until you actually want to shoot. The
optional external battery connector is a
particularly attractive accessory. In extreme
conditions (in polar areas, refrigerators,
cold laboratories, etc.) it will also be necessary to protect the camera from extreme
temperatures.
Shooting in extreme lighting
conditions
The automatic exposure-metering and
control systems incorporated in the
camera body remain fully operational
with all interchangeable viewfinders, filters, extension tubes, reversing adapter
and bellows unit. The exposure will always
be metered with high precision, directly
through the lens. In other words, the viewing angle will be taken into account just
as any filter factor. The three metering
modes available in the camera optimally
cover any lighting situation encountered in
photographic practice.
..............................................................................
77
PRACTICAL HINTS
..............................................................................
78
Spot metering
Multi-spot metering
In the case of strong backlight or subjects
against a bright or dark background, spot
metering allows very precise metering of
the main subject. The split-image spot of
the standard focusing screen serves as an
aid for aiming. Spot metering covers about
1% of the frame and thus provides exposure accuracy that gives you complete control over your images. If the subject detail
metered is off center, lock AE and recompose.
Using this mode, you may meter up to
five different subject details (highlights or
shadows). The camera computer will then
average them and put them in memory.
Individual details may be emphasized by
taking repeated readings. The mode may
be used in any of the available automatic
exposure modes. The result can be shifted
at will by varying the aperture or shutter
speed.
..............................................................................
PRACTICAL HINTS
..............................................................................
Exposure compensation
Automatic bracketing
This is very helpful above all in conjunction
with one of the automatic exposure
modes. Compensation values can be set in
one-third increments and have click stops.
This allows very precise exposure control.
If in spite of all the options mentioned
you should still be uncertain as to how
obtain optimum exposure, you still have
the automatic bracketing mode: A brief
series of pictures taken with different
exposure compensation. For a special spacing of exposure-compensation steps or
plus compensation only, you may combine
bracketing with an exposure compensation so that you can combine automatic
control with very precise corrective measures.
With manual exposure control, shutter
speed is varied for exposure compensation. The default setting is for a variation
of exposure by 2/3 EV. Using the Variable
Defaults, this can be reduced to 1/3 EV.
Further variations are possible with MasterWare.
..............................................................................
79
PRACTICAL HINTS
..............................................................................
Substitute reading
Subject contrast
A substitute reading, for instance with a
gray card (and following the instructions
supplied with this) is advisable in very difficult lighting conditions. It will give an
average for an optimum compromise for
the best possible rendition of mid-tones.
It is a known fact that finding proper
exposure data is all the more difficult, the
steeper the gradation of the film and the
higher the contrast in the subject.
Close-up reading
This also is a viable alternative for difficult
lighting conditions: Take a close-up reading of your subject and lock AE. Then
recompose and take your picture.
80
Excessive contrast can be reduced by
using fill flash, softer illumination, a different type of film, compensating development or changing your shooting angle or
camera station.
If none of these measures is enough to
reduce subject contrast sufficiently, the
purpose of your picture will decide over
what is more important: highlights, shadows or mid-tones. Multi-spot metering is
a viable technique for this type of shooting
condition.
..............................................................................
PRACTICAL HINTS
..............................................................................
Close-up photography
Extension tubes and a bellows attachment
take you right into the close-up range.
Extension tubes may be used in whatever
combination seems adequate. And this
also holds for a combination of extension
tubes and bellows attachment. In either
case, the electronic exposure control of the
camera will remain fully operative.
The following close-up accessories are
available:

from 22 mm to 68 mm. It thus covers
the close-up range seamlessly, without
changing individual components, and can
be used in conjunction with the reverse
adapter. It is suitable for use with any lens
with a size VI filter bayonet.
The bellows attachment has a rack-andpinion drive and a focusing slide. Clamp
screws are provided to secure extension
settings from 67 to 204 mm. Extensions
can be read from a scale. The unit can
be mounted on a tripod via a 1/4“ screw
socket. All metering and exposure modes
of the camera are retained even with the
bellows attachment in place.
Bellows attachment, 67 – 204 mm
Zoom extension tube, 22 – 68 mm
Reverse adapter
All extension tubes have a double Rollei
bayonet mount and can thus be combined
at will. If all four of the tubes are used, a
total extension up to 127mm is available.

PRACTICAL HINTS
..............................................................................
The reverse adapter further enhances
the versatility of your Rolleiflex 6008
AF/integral2 in close-up photography. The
adapter allows lenses with a size VI filter
bayonet to be reverse-mounted, retaining
all metering and exposure modes. It
should preferably be used in conjunction
with the bellows attachment. In this case,
reproduction ratios from 1.8:1 to 3.5:1 can
be covered with a reverse-mounted 80mm
Planar f/2.8 lens.
Note (6008 AF):
For technical reasons, the AF module is
operative only up to an effective lens
speed of f/5.6. Remember that this limit
can easily be exceeded when a teleconverter is used or accessories are employed to
increase the extension of the lens.
A valuable aid for this kind of photography, usually combined with complex illumination technique, is the matte box.

PRACTICAL HINTS
..............................................................................
Instant shutter release (Quick Release)
In practice, instant response may be very
important for capturing a subject at the
decisive moment – for example if the
camera is mounted on a tripod for shutter
tripping via a light barrier. Since hardly any
release lag is admissible in this particular
case, light metering and mirror motion are
performed in advance.
With the aid of MasterWare, release lags
from 1 ms to 99 ms can be set in increments of milliseconds. The mode can be
canceled by another depression of the
stop-down button.
To select the ”Quick-Release“ mode
(- qr -), lock the mirror up while pressing
the memo button. This will prompt the
camera to meter the light, put the result
in memory and flip the mirror up. The
exposure will be made approx. 3 – 4 ms
after shutter tripping. If a PQS lens is used,
the release lag will only be about 2 ms.
If you press the stop-down button while
- qr - is displayed, qr Auto will appear in
the display. To cancel Auto, press the stopdown button once more. Releasing the
shutter in the qr Auto mode will result in
quick release with automatic standby for
the next shot.

CARE OF YOUR CAMERA
..............................................................................
Care of your camera
Your Rolleiflex 6008 AF/6008 integral2
deserve the same careful treatment as any
other precision instrument that is expected
to give reliable service over a prolonged
period. Here are a few useful hints:
» Never touch the reflex mirror or the
upper and bottom faces of the focusing
screen with your fingers! Remove dust
with a blower brush.
» Store your camera in a cool and dry
place. In humid climate, the camera
should be kept in an airtight container
together with a suitable amount of
desiccant. Excessive humidity in tropical
and subtropic areas can cause corrosion
on metallic parts and fungus growth on
glass surfaces.
» Take special care to protect your camera
from dust and dirt.
» Never exert any pressure on the auxiliary
shutter of the camera!
» If necessary, breathe on lens surfaces
and clean them with lens tissue. To
avoid an antistatic charge, breathe on
the surface and let the humidity evaporate.
» Protect your camera from prolonged
exposure to harmful vapors and humidity.

Further optional accessories
Interchangeable lenses
The Rolleiflex 6000 System includes further
dedicated accessories extending the uses
of the Rolleiflex 6008, optimizing its handling and preparing the camera for certain
specific uses.
These lenses are based on Rollei‘s proprietary direct-drive technology. Two integral
linear motors are controlled by the microcomputer of the camera and allow the
generation of exact apertures and highly
precise shutter speeds from 1/1000 s to
30 s, without any noticeable time lag.
The interface between camera and lens
is a ten-pin contact bar. In other words,
there are neither moving parts, nor is there
wear.
For an overall view of the entire camera
system with all its accessories, see the
System Chart on pages 92 – 95.
The line of available lenses ranges from
30mm fisheye to 1000mm telephoto. It
includes all popular focal lengths as well
as perspective-control and zoom lenses.
Together with the high-speed lenses by
Schneider it fully satisfies the needs of the
professional.

FURTHER OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
..............................................................................
Teleconverters
Interchangeable viewfinders
Two teleconverters with extension factors
of 1.4x and 2x are available for manual
focusing with Rollei lenses*.
Interchangeable viewfinder attachments
and various bright focusing screens make
for optimum ground-glass viewing in any
situation.
Interchangeable magazines
The standard focusing hood serves for
waist-level viewing and has an interchangeable magnifier (3x magnification,
+2.5 to –4.5 dp).
allow the use of size 120 and 220 roll film
for 6x6cm or 4.5x6cm pictures in either
horizontal or vertical format. All roll-film
magazines have fast-loading film inserts,
an automatic frame counter and an integral laminar drawslide.
There also is an instant magazine for
ten 6x6cm exposures on Polaroid or Fuji
8.5x10.8cm film-pack.
*(6008 AF only)
86
..............................................................................
FURTHER OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
..............................................................................
The 45° prism finder and the 90° telescopic viewfinder give an upright and
unreversed image. They have four click
stops at intervals of 90° and thus ensure
convenient viewfinder observation even in
the case of difficult shooting angles. As
these viewfinders are attached, their display is automatically modified so that it will
appear unreversed.
The magnifier hood consists of the Rollei
6x6 magnifier and a base frame for the
Rolleiflex 6008 AF/6008 integral2. The
Rollei magnifier, which is available as an
optional accessory, may be used to view
full-frame 6x6 slides, negatives or paper
prints.
And this applies even more to mounted
or unmounted 35mm slides. The loupe
with 3x linear magnification is highly corrected and excels by outstanding color
fidelity and freedom from color fringes
over the entire field. With the interchangeable base, the pictures can be viewed both
in incident and transmitted light. Placed on
the base frame, the magnifier becomes a
rigid magnifier hood.
..............................................................................
87
FURTHER OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
..............................................................................
Focusing screens
Bright focusing screen with a central
microprism collar and a split-image
rangefinder for highly accurate focusing
on vertical detail. The focus criterion for
the microprism collar is a clear image without shimmer. The micro-fine texture of the
focusing screen allows focusing anywhere
in the frame; in addition, the screen has
grid lines.
Fine ground-glass screen for highly precise focusing, especially in close-up photography, at any aperture and at high
reproduction ratios. Particularly well-suited
for creative composition when focusing
aids would be distracting.
Bright focusing screen with microprism spot for rapid focusing with microprism spot and ground glass. For easy and
precise focusing even in poor light. Focusing criterion: no image shimmer.
High-D screen for outstanding brightness
of viewfinder image and precise focusing
even in critical lighting conditions, such as
in twilight or in a portrait studio. A central
split-image rangefinder facilitates focusing
on vertical lines. Guidelines for horizontal
and vertical 4.5x6 shots also serve to align
the camera with high precision.
Bright focusing screen with micro-fine
texture for focusing anywhere in the
frame and easy composition, also suitable
for very low-speed lenses and for checking
depth of field. With guidelines for horizontal and vertical-format 4.5x6 shots.

Matte box
External battery connector
The matte box is a kind of extensible bellows and serves to shield the lens very
effectively from stray light in back or side
lighting. A scale marks focal lengths of 50
mm, 80 mm and 120 – 250 mm.
With this accessory, the battery can be
conveniently carried close to your body to
keep it warm and powerful even at low
temperatures.
Masks for focal lengths of 120mm and
250mm are standard equipment. A rear
drawer will take gelatine filters up to
75x75mm in size.

PowerInterface
Rollei SCA-3562 Flash Adapter
This is of the same size as the Nicad
battery and can be inserted into the
battery slot of the camera. Various different power sources can then be connected
to the interface, such as the Rollei charger
from the Rolleiflex 6000 System, the Rollei
12V AC adapter, the mobile power source
by Einhell or an automobile cigarette lighter. This will greatly increase both the stationary and mobile uses of the camera.
This permits dedicated flash photography
with the dedicated flash units of popular
brands offering the SCA-3000 System.
Connection to the system is made by
simply slipping the flash unit with the SCA
adapter into the hot shoe of the camera.
This ensures perfect transmission of all the

COMPATIBILITY
..............................................................................
Compatibility with older components
With the exception of SLX and 6002
backs, all interchangeable components can
be used on the 6008 AF, although some of
them only to a limited extent.
Please note:
Using the interchangeable type 6006
magazine
While the back of a Rolleiflex 6002 or SLX
can be attached to the body of the Rolleiflex 6008 AF/6008 integral2, blur must
be expected due to a lack of film flattening.
When interchangeable magazines for the
Rolleiflex 6006 are used, the ISO speed will
not be transferred automatically because
these magazines do not allow any filmspeed setting.
Magazines of the Rolleiflex 6008 AF/6008
integral2 or 6008 Integral, on the other
hand, should never be attached to a Rolleiflex 6002 or SLX body, or mechanical
damage is unavoidable!
In this case, your Rolleiflex 6008 AF will
default to ISO 100/21°. Should you use
film of different speed, make the necessary correction by means of compensation
switch 43. The exposure-compensation
icon will not be displayed in this case.
Films with speeds from ISO 25/15° to
2500/35° can thus be used according to
the following table:
Film inserts of the Rolleiflex SLX (which
may be recognized by interior icons and
indices) should not be used because they
may jam when they are removed.

Use of older interchangeable lenses
(for SLX, 6002 and 6006)
When using the lenses of the Rolleiflex
SLX, 6002 or 6006 (no PQ lenses), note
the following: Since these lenses have not
been designed for open-aperture simulation, the working aperture metered will be
displayed only when the memory button
27 or the stop-down button 32 is pressed.
Pressing the memo button will also lock
in the AE value. This is why the reading
should be repeated by renewed depression
of the memo or stop-down button after
any variation of the shutter speed or aperture. Exposure will in any case be made
with the shutter-speed/aperture combination determined when the shutter release
is pressed – regardless of whether the
memo or stop-down button was pressed.
Only exception: If the memo button is
locked.
Due to stop-down metering, the aperture
range of EV 5 to 19 is smaller than
with PQ lenses. With these, shutter-speed
and programmed AE as well as multi-spot
metering and fill flash are not available.
Also, bulb cannot be combined with T.
Due to the lack of aperture simulation,
the aperture is not displayed. All other
displays are analogous to the display with
PQ lenses. If a certain operating mode
should not be available with older interchangeable lenses, the display “
“
or “------“ will appear in the place of the
aperture or shutter-speed display.
..............................................................................
103
COMPATIBILITY
..............................................................................
Since older lenses can only be used with
stop-down metering, the stray-light compensation range for open focusing hood
is frequently exceeded. It is therefore
advisable to take the reading with the
magnifier flipped up, and your eye should
be as close to the magnifier as possible
to shield the focusing screen against direct
exposure to light.
