1. The Sankyo requires 4 AA batteries to be loaded into a plastic battery holder before being placed into the handle of the camera. Correct orientation of the batteries in the holder is very important, as incorrect orientation, ie: negative and positive, will result in the battery holder melting. AA batteries will be supplied by the “renter”.

2. The film cartridge is placed into the side of the camera via a small slide button on the side of the camera. Be sure the camera can expose the film correctly; different cameras have differing abilities to expose some types of film.

3. If shooting with lights, pull the filter activation flap up to the “light bulb” position. If shooting in sunlight, leave filter activation flap down, in the “sun” position, against the body of the camera. If shooting black & white, leave the filter activation flap button in the “sun” position.

4. Film use can be monitored on the side of the camera in feet. When the film reaches the end of its length, the motor will make a distinctly different noise. Insert a new film cartridge.

5. The camera is turned off when the switch indicates “OFF.” The camera is turned on in the run position when the switch indicates “ON”.

6. The camera has a manual and automatic exposure control. To activate the manual control, rotate the switch off “AUTO” adjust the desired exposure before the dial moves into the “LOCK” position. To activate the automatic control, rotate the switch to the “AUTO” position.

7. The diopter setting needs to be adjusted for each person that uses the camera. To set the diopter (eyepiece) focus the camera on a distant object, and adjust the diopter by rotating the ring until the object is in clear focus. On this Sankyo camera the adjusting ring is built into the eye piece.
