Checking the battery level status


Check the mercury battery after loading it. Especially when loading a new battery, be sure to check the voltage.
  1. Set the film speed graduation of the shutter dial at ASA 100 and set "X" at the index mark. Lift up the outer sensitivity ring of the shutter dial and turn. An accurate check cannot be made if settings other than those mention above are used.
  2. Turn the check ring on the outer side of the film rewind knob and set "C" at the index mark.
  3. If the meter needle inside the viewfinder swings up to or over the o index, it means there is sufficient voltage. If the needle stays below the edge of the o index, voltage is insufficient and the battery must be replaced.
  • In the Canon Pellix QL, the electric current flows only when the CdS actuation lever is pressed.
