Hello everyone,

I'm very excited to begin my work with Super8. I recently purchased a chinon 200/8 xl pacific. The camera seems to work great. I've will be running a test shoot tomorrow. Just a few things though. There are several dials and buttons i'm unfamiliar with. I don't have the manual, so i was wondering if anyone's got any experience with this camera.

For example. what is the dial with the "+" and "-" signs. Exposure? Is the dial with the "Auto" and "Manual" setting for exposure too.

Forgive me i'm very new to this.

yours truly
Aruna

Auto and Manual is for exposure. If you shoot in auto camera will set aperture automatically. Best to start in auto, take a light reading, and then go into manual tpo set desired aperture. + and - bias the auto either over-exposure or under-exposure.

Thanks for the advice. It's much appreciated.

Do you know where there are any manuals available for this camera online?
