Help me.

I need help with my new Sankyo CME 1100, tis really weird, it has this crazy Dichroid Focusing System, and the viewfinder is rather dim in lowish light, does this camera have any low-light capabilities at all, because that's crucial to me.

Also if anyone knows where I can get a manual for ths thing please let me know.

Odds are high that it doesn't have much of any 'low-light capabilities' - of course the light capabilities are influenced by the film speed, apeture, etc.- I don't know what angle the shutter is on your camera.

Have you shot film yet on this camera? I can't stress enough that the best way to learn how to use your camera is to actually start *using* it. You'll get the film back and it'll give you a good idea of what light amounts work, what's in focus and what's not, etc.

The camera's shutter opening is 150 degrees centigrade, that's all I know, I'm waiting for a shipment of E64T to arrive at my local Jessops sometime this week, when I can I'll test this camera.
