    Canonet QL17 question

    I recently bought a Canonet QL17 that works great.
    It didn't come with a manual and I have a question.

    On the f-stop ring, to the right of the "A", there are several numbers in blue. What are these numbers/settings used for?

    Thanks,
    DB

    What a coincidence, recently acquired one myself and had the same question in my mind. Thanks for the link to the manual.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I think that is where you dial in the guide number of the flash-film combo you are using; then the camera sets your flash exposure as you focus. Neat.
