APERTURE SETTING
Keep the exposure mode dial set at AUTO. Rotate the aperture ring
of the lens and preselect the lens aperture (also called f-number) in
accordance with shooting conditions as follows.

f 14 - f/5.6
. . . . . . f1 1 . 2 - f l 2 . g
The above is a rough guide that is highly useful for most shooting
situations such as for snapshots and scenery. These apertures will give
satisfactory exposure as long as the green LED in the viewfinder
lights. lf other LEDs should light, reset the aperture in accordance
with the instructions given on the following page.
Although the above is all you need to know to obtain better resutts
than you have perhaps ever obtained before with most of your
photographs, as you gain more experience you may want to vary the
lens aperture for special effects, such as highlighting your
subject by throwing the background and foreground out of focus
by using wider apertures, etc. lf you are interested in learning these
special aperture control techniques, refer to the section entitled
" S h o o t i n g P o i n t e r s , " ( p a g e 2 2 l '.

CAUTION
lf you should happen to pressthe shutter button while the
shutter dial is set on AUTo with the lens cap on, or in very
poor lighting conditions, the mirror may lock up, resurting
in abnormally long exposure. To correct this, the shutter
can be quickly closed by turning the shutter dial to 100x.
After closing the shutter, be sure to reset the shutter dial
tO AUTO.

lf you use a tripod or make
an exposure at any time
without your eye to the
viewf inder eyepiece, cover
the eyepiece with the
accessory F inder Cap;
otherwise light entering
f rom the rear of the camera
may adversely affect the

a microprism collar. For precise focus, turn the
focusing ring of the lens until the two images in
the split-image circle at the center align as one.
lf you f ind focusing with the split-image circle
diff icult, focus with the microprism cellar by
turning the focusing ring until the glitter
