    I got a mint condition Konica Autoreflex T and it works like a dream. It was my first SLR in 1968 so I am having major flashbacks of early photo joy with it.

    I just got some new black and white film from B&H photo, and I loaded on a roll of ASA 125. The little window in the shutter speed dial is marked at ASA 100. I
    can't figure out how to change the shutter speed to 125. Can someone help me with this fine technical point?

    Thanks in advance for replies.

    As far as I recall, lift-twist-and-drop.

    LIFT TWIST AND DROP ASA ON KONICA AUTOREFLEX T

    thanks for the link to the manual -- I'd already bookmarked that in an earlier foray of investigation.

    yep, after I posted this and one elsewhere, I kept on messing with the ASA setting because I could see that it moved a little bit when I tried to turn the shutterspeed dial. On one of those times, it accidentally lifted up -- THEN I got it. It had slipped back down immediately, but I relifted it and adjusted the ASA an increment higher and was satisfied that I had finally solved a "mechanical" dilemma (not my forte, to be sure).

    Now I'm just wondering about the voltage of the batteries provided me by the camera shop that sold it to me, since with the difference in voltage between today's batteries and the old mercury batteries, the ASA has to be compensated for -- to what degree and in what direction, I have no idea.

    So I guess I'll just have fun experimenting!

    Thanks for both of your replies and assistance.
