FOCUSING
1. To focus, estimate the distance you're away from the subject to be photographed.

2. Then turn the focusing wheel so that the distance appears opposite the arrow. Your picture will then be in sharp focus.

CHOOSING THE CORRECT EXPOSURE*
Consult the simplified exposure chart on the bottom of the camera.

DAYLIGHT EXPOSURES*
1. Illustrated on the chart are four common conditions encountered when taking pictures outdoors.

2. Most exposures outside can be taken at a shutter speed of 1/50 of a second unless it is dark or overcast, then 1/25, is best. Setting the shutter at 1/50 of a second will stop some action and take care of ordinary camera movement. Set the required shutter speed opposite the arrow on the right lens.

3. On a bright sunny day f : 5.6 would be the normal lens opening for dark subjects . . . those that do not reflect a great amount of light, such as trees, dark buildings, etc.

4. A setting of f : 8 would be the normal lens opening for light subjects .... those that do reflect a great amount of light, such as at the beach, snow, at high altitudes, etc.

5. For an average subject, one that is neither extremely dark nor light, the correct lens opening would be between f : 5.6 and f : 8.
