*There is another set of shutter speed number in green behind B –
4 8 15 40 60 125 250
that i have no clue on how to use it. My guess is some sort of semi automated shutter/aperture function that I haven’t figured out yet or it no longer works on this camera*

Aperture is chosen by the knob on top of the camera.
When you rotate the shutter speed ring it will set all the correct shutter speed and aperture combo.
The knob also controls the match needle, and also house the ASA settings.

Lens: Vega-3 50mm f2.8
Aperture: f2.8-22
Focus: ~0.8m – infinity
Mechanical DOF Markers
Auto Reflex Aperture
