    Help with Japanese instructions please.

    Hello,
    I've just recieved delivery of a Fuji BYU N-16, the same as a Kalimar Actionshot 16 ( http://shop.lomography.com/actionshot16/ ), but the Japanese market model, with entirely Japanese instructions.
    A bit of playing and the aforementioned website has resolved the operation of the main functions, but I'm not sure how, if at all, one sets the film speed. Attached is the only mention I can find of ISO speeds in the manual, is anyone able to translate it for me, or has one themselves and knows these things ?

    Thanks,

    Crispin

    Don't have the camera, but from this page:
    Go to
    http://shop.lomography.com/actionshot16/
    and press the "Specifications" tab

    I deduce that the camera has no facility for film speed setting, being designed to work best with ISO 800 and at a pinch with ISO 400.

    Regards,

    David

    I had read that page (honest) and came to the same conclusion, but I am interested to know what the manual says about it. Probably to use 400 for when it's sunny and 800 when it's overcast.

    Crispin, on this page it says 400 for sunny days and 800 for overcast:

    Looking forward to seeing the fruits of this new labour!

    I really should pay more attention to my own reference links shouldn't I :rolleyes:
    I've put a roll of my APX400 stash in it. Given that the weather forecast for tomorrow is typical for UK Summer 2007 I'll probably push it a stop (or two) when I process it, assuming the rain actually stops at all tomorrow.

    For the record, a wife of a friend of a friend translated the manual and the official advice is ISO100 for Sunny, ISO400 for a bit cloudy and ISO800 for dull. This ties up with my experience on Sunday when it actually turned out sunny and the ISO400 film I used was a bit overexposed.
    Here's a couple of quick neg scans, I'll see if they print OK at the weekend.

    It says ISO 100 for clear/sunny, ISO 400 for partly cloudy, and ISO 800 for cloudy.

    And make sure the perforations catch on the sprockets
    Those who know, shoot film
