How to read the Auto Shooting Distance Range scale.


Once you have selected an aperture by setting the Aperture/MANU selection switch to the upper or middle position there is only a certain range of shooting distances which will give correct exposure. On the 188A the correct shooting distance is indicated by the red and green lines in accordance with the selection of the aperture.

The break in the colored line indicates the maximum limits of the range and the left range is effective when the Wide Adapter 188A is attached.
