    Hi Neja, thanks for your answer!!

    Yes I know classic stuffs about shutter speed and aperture but I read somewhere I can't find again that there are preferred settings that make things better on the Horizon.

    - On a sunny day and with ISO 100 film / setting in the camera, one sets the aperture to f/16 and the shutter speed to 1/100 or 1/125 second
    - On a sunny day with ISO 200 film / setting and aperture at f/16, set shutter speed to 1/200 or 1/250.
    - On a sunny day with ISO 400 film / setting and aperture at f/16, set shutter speed to 1/400 or 1/500.

    more questions after reading the instructions manual:
    - do you use the filters?
    - do you use the handle?
