but I would like you to understand

The exposure compensation dial is located below the film rewind handle and doubles as a film compensation dial.
There are five different correction values.
On a black base color plate, the five correction values are represented by orange-colored and white-colored letters.
1/4x, 1/2x, 2x, and 4x are orange-colored, and 1x is white-colored.
To select a value, turn the side of the dial as it is and align it with the red-colored triangular system indicator.
The exposure compensation dial is easy to turn.
