    Hey guys,

    Scored on a decent 3.5f. I noticed there is a film type selector. The options are "Col" with a icon of sun, the other is "COL" with icon of clouds and the other is Icon of something that might be Black and white.. it looks like a a graduated swish looking thing? Can anyone explain exactly what those are and I'm understanding these corectly?

    They are reminders. For people with multiple Rolleis, so they can tell what film is loaded in what camera. They have no effect on camera operation, etc. So don't worry about where you have it set. Or what each symbol means- they mean whatever you want them to mean!
