    Rolleiflex users, I just bought a 3.5E (1959-1961) off EBay for 225 USD, it came today. :D Figured out how it works, with a little help for two books for Ian Parker (poorly written IMO) and my Baby-127

    I think the ASA setting is just reference to reminded you what film is load in the camera. It’s stuck and will not move :(

    Some of the E model have light meters, and some don't. Mine does, but I don't even know if it works, because I just use my regular hand held meter.

    If your's doesnt have a meter (little glass bumps on top of front of camera) then yes, it's just a reminder dial. If yours does have a meter, it's just for setting the meter, and has no other effect on the camera.
