    You're better off not using the Rollei Magic at all - I'm amazed yours still works. But the fact that the auto aperture seems to be giving you wide open all the time is suggestive that this camera is like most other Rollei Magics and not working now. And it's not worth fixing - IF you can get it fixed, you'll spend more to repair it than you would to get a clean working regular Rolleiflex 3.5 E, and maybe even a 2.8 E if you're lucky.

    i am not saying that it doesn't work, which it does. i would like to over ride it and see what works best for my shots. i will try it on my own, just thought i would find someone out there that has done it , with this camera.

    I believe the flash settings give you about a 1/30" shutter speed at the selected aperture. They should work fine with no flash.
