Important operating cautions!
The right side of the camera in closed position.
The left side fully open.
Critical to using the camera without damage is to be absolutely certain the focus panel has fully locked.
Shown below is the focus screen NOT locked and still slightly forward of the position it must move back to
for being able to rotate the film back to the horizontal position.
The following picture shows the correct position for the focus panel.
Below: Focus panel in the correct position fully back and locked.
Care should also be exercised when changing from vertical to horizontal orientation of the film back
as occasionally the masking vanes, as shown below, can hit edge to edge. If this happens back off slightly
and try again until they pass without locking.
