Hi everyone, I just got my first camera from my friends for my birthday, I think they got it from some photographer and that it's used, it's praktica plc3 and I watched few tutorials on YouTube on how to use it, but I fail to understand how to change ISO/ASA on my camera. I inserted a film that's 200 and took fee photos just to try it out. This is what it looks like, the part with smaller numbers won't spin but the whole thing does. I overall understood how to use the camera except for this part. I don't know if I should've done something with it before inserting the film but it wasn't in the video.

P. S. I'm really sorry for not knowing a single thing about this, it's my first camera and the first time I ever encountered a camera that uses film.

Thanks in advance!

The silver dial on that silver black dial should lift upward and turn.
That will change (or at least should) the ASA setting.

Thank you sooo much!! This was super useful and I managed to turn it, I'm super excited and grateful.
