Before exposing with the telephoto lens measure the distance] of the manjal with the rangefinder of your RETINA, and read off the distance against the index 9 on the focusing scale To tension the shutter, pull out the rapid-winding lever 36 in one movement as for as it will go. The camera is now ready to shoot. Divide this guide number by the distance; that gives you the aperture number to use. This is especially important with color shots, as you cannot easily trim a color transparency.

So try a few positions to find which suits you best.

The film counter always indicates the number of shots still available. Always sure to set the distance on the correct focusing score when using the interchangeable lenses. They are, however, mainly intended as a guide; you can, of course, hold the camera in other ways, too.

Turn the meter setting ring manuaothus moving a red pointer until the latter coincides with the black pointer of the exposure meter.

Transfer the distance figure obtained with the rangefinder to the wide-angle distance scale 29 and read off from the mark To lack the lens kocak and correctly in place, turn it clockwise as far as it will go, until the red dot is opposite the white dot on the bayonet ring. Depth of field To permit instant readings of the depth of field for any aperture and distance, a depth of field scale 15 is arranged symmetrically around the distance index 9.


V is the self-timer setting. You will find small circles on the focusing scales for the wide-angle lens at 10 feet and far manuaal telephoto lens at 15 feet and at about 50 feet.

Now work the rapid-winding lever and press the film release button 8. This retnia is particularly suitable far determining the light value in against-the-light shots and snow subjects, as well as close-tips. Do not let direct light, sky light, or strong artificial light strike the honeycomb cell of the exposure meter as you may otherwise obtain too high readings, leading-to underexposure. Now close the camera back. To do this turn the focusing knob until the appropriate distance on the telephoto scale is opposite T-index mark Only then can you close the camera.
