    What dose the I and B stand for on the shutter button? I know what they do I just don't know what they mean.

    Just a complete guess here but maybe I=instant, B=Bulb?

    I think "I" is for flash
    "B" is bulb

    I is for instantaneous. Set the collar to I to use the speed dial. BTW, "inbetween" speeds work just fine on the shutter dial.

    OK one more question. There are threads on the inside of the shutter button. Is that for a "remote" or timed release? I have not seen any examples of them but it make sense to me I guess.

    Yes a cable release would thread in there or a wind up timer.

    I
    have two of these cameras one of which works and one is missing the shutter knob. A site like this can be a great help in keeping it up and running. http://www.arguscg.org/manuals/c3/gaon-repair/
