    Setting ASA (ISO) on Nikkormat

    I have several SLR's, and can figure out most. I just got a Nikkormat
    FTN - a bargain I couldn't pass up - and I have figured out everthing
    except how to set the film speed.

    There is a scale on the bottom of the lens mount with what looks like
    a sliding indicator, but I can't get it to move. Is there a trick,
    might it be stuck, is there another way? I didn't want to force it!

    I posted this on the rec.photo and got a couple of good answers, but nothing that's worked yet. I apologize if you've seen this question before. And if you answered me in the rec, you don't need to here!

    Would posting a picture help?

    Thanks in advance!!

    There should be a small knob attached to the asa ring which will allow you to change settings. It is located near the bottom of the lens mount ( six o'clock).

    If I recall correctly, you need to gently press it in towards the center while rotating/sliding it.

    Locate the Tab to adjust exposure times. It has a silvery knob at its end. Pull this knob out to unlock the ASA-indicator.

    I have a FTN and I just stick my thumb nail into the middle of the little black thing just under the lens mount and push it to whatever asa I want. It's rather hard to push so don't worry.
