Thread: Rollei 35 camera with reversed ASA - DIN setting

  1. #1

    Default Rollei 35 camera with reversed ASA - DIN setting

    I've just acquired an old Rollei 35 which was made in Singapore in the 1970s. Everything seems to work fine, but I notice that the dial for the film speed is reverse. The numbers for ASA are set on the DIN side, conversely, the numbers for DIN are set on the ASA side.
    Has anyone come across this or have any explanation for this?
    Thanks for any light anyone can shed.

    this asa dial is on the front right? Perhaps during some previous repair, the decal/dial was fitted back the wrong way?
    But since the ASA and DIN arrows are diametrically opposite, I don't think you'd have any problem

    Thanks Edwin. You're right that it won't affect the metering since the ASA and DIN arrows are opposite. I was just curious why it's that way. Thanks for reply.
