Re: [Rollei] SL66

Welcome the the SL66 family.   I am sure you will find your new camera 
quite interesting.  I know I love mine.  I would recommend a visit to Mark 
Meier's site www.sl66.com  He sells a CD-ROM with all the SL66 manuals and 
literature for a reasonable price.  He also has a link to another site


which covers most of the basics of the camera.

Of course, if you want an original manual, you could probably get one from 
John Craig: http://www.craigcamera.com/

or perhaps Pacific Rim Camera: http://www.pacificrimcamera.com/

I am sure you will have lots of questions.  Several members of the list use 
SL66s so ask away, you will get lots of answers.  The most important rule 
is to never remove the back from the camera without cocking the shutter 
first.  (Just like a Hasselblad).
