    :smile: hi all

    I am currently using the flexaret 4 (6x6). I am very pleased with this camera but I am still to figure out a few things... I searched the forums but couldnt find what I was looking for..sooo. here we go:

    Does anybody have the instruction manual for this camera?

    1) I cant seem to figure out how to change the ASA/DIN settings

    2) Not sure what some of the "wheels" on the side of the camera will do...I attached a pic to mimimize the explanation part of this thread :smile:

    I hope theres someone out there able to help me.

    Yours truly, Kim

    I don't know if the Meopta website still has a manual but they used to. Might not be the exact same model but they are mostly similar.

    Why are you worried about changing the film speed? No meter.

    If nobody else can help I'll pull by later model out and see if it's got the same bits.

    Kim,
    Have you tried pulling the know away from the camera to change the DIN?
    The small knurled section you indicate appears to be a thumb or finger operated wheel. Press on it gently with the pad of a digit & rotate it, the small display next to it will probably rotate as the disc is turned.
