Hi,

I know it'd be easier to just manually set the exposure but I want to check if it works. It's called "Exposure Adjustment Control" in the manual. I just can't turn the ring. Is there a lock?

Thanks in advance.

hello sasithorn,
no, there is no lock. Just use force. They are firm at the best of times, but sounds like yours is firmer than it should be. This exposure compensation control is on of the great features of an R10. It allows you to compensate for a drifted exposure meter, but also for double exposure or rating a cartridge differently to how it is notched etc.
so just use force - it shouldn't break.
cheers,
Richard

Thanks, Richard. I was finally able to turned it...with a lot of force.

I experienced the same problem with mine a few yars back. I used one of those flexible rubber bottle cap openers to get it to turn.
