    Rolleiflex 3.5f light meter icons?

    hey guys,

    I was just checking out my 3.5f and I never noticed that there are these mysterious icons picture where the little silver turning button is? It show a "COL with sun icon and few others. I turned the button and there seems to be no difference in where light meter needle is positioned. Anyone know what the purpose is?

    COL with sun- daylight color film?

    If so, this was just a reminder as to what type of film was loaded in a camera. It has no effect on operation, metering, etc. I know on older models that you turned one direction to change the film type indicator and the other direction to change the film speed indicator.

    Yup. Just reminders. Not connected to anything.
