And a 2pc knob that looks just like what you set the time with on an old watch on the top left of the lens,next to shutter.
The cable release is is a bad spot whoever designed this, its recressed so its hard to screw the release in straight w/o stripping the threads.
will check that website thanks again!
The control that says M BLUE F WH X RED adjusts the flash for flashbulbs or electronic flash. Leave it on X for electronic flash. The other control you ask about may be for opening the shutter for focusing without setting the shutter to T. I'd have to dig into a box of old shutters to refresh an ancient mind as to just how it works.
