HOW TO SET YOUR F-STOP
We recommend using hand-held light meter, light meter app or Black Cat Exposure Guide based on the film ISO you are using and the 1/30th sec shutter speed. (Please DO NOT use the guide on the camera lens. The guide is for film ISO that is no longer available)
After processing this gives 50 ft. of film (about 4 minutes showing).
Spring-driven, smooth and quiet running. When fully wound it will expose feet of film, with a positive “cut-off” at end of run. Fast crank-wind handle folds neatly away when not in use.
Footage Meter: Sets automatically when film is loaded into camera
