So guys, I just picked up one of these babies on fleabay.
Hasn't arrived yet, but how do you actually use it? MF is a whole new experience to me.
I can't seem to see a shutter speed dial?
Both the shutter speed and the aperture/f-stop setting rings are on the front of the lens. The lens hood sliding back on the front of the lens obscures the setting readout. Slide the hood forward for adjusting.
Just purchased a GSW690III that I found at Samy's Camera up in Hollywood. Now the crazy part is that it is brand new! It was ordered and then never purchased. I got a great deal...I have been looking for a GSW for some time. I have not even shot a roll of film yet. I just got back from the store. It has all the cards and manual and a 000 counter.
So I really looking forward to putting this baby to work. So there are some gems out there, it just takes lots of energy to find em. It also weighs next to nothing . Iam going out to buy some 67mm filters next. But Iam also looking forward to shooting some great color slides.
I actually think that shooting will be easy as the shutter almost silent compared to any of my medium SLR's.....that sound like pop guns.
