The other day i decided to clean my Nizo 6080, this kind of went to plan apart from when i opened the casing the switch for day light/tungsten dropped off before i had chance to note what position it was originally in. I've taken a picture with the switch set to tungsten (up position) and noticed that a filter has engaged is this correct ? Or should the filter be engaged when the switch is set to day light ?

Gencer

I don't have a 6080 but the filter system is common to all super 8 cameras...
There is an orange (85) filter that should be engaged when the switch is set to daylight.

This is because super 8 film has traditionally been tungsten balanced film: e.g. K40 (40 ASA for Tungsten shooting, effective 25 ASA with the filter for daylight shooting).

Thanks Jacob, after reading that post and re-taking a look at the camera all made sense. Its a fairly simple switch on the 6080, and when its set to daylight the filter drops in front of the lens. When the switch is moved to tungsten it moves a small spring upwards which in turn moves the filter away from the lens.

This picture shows the filter set to the daylight position, where as in the previous image the switch was in the tungsten position.

I can now go on my road trip happily knowing that my filter switch works :rolleyes:
