How to adjust the movements:
(In all cases adjustments refer to both the knob indicated
and the corresponding knob on the other side of the
camera)
(a) Rise/Fall
Front: Loosen knob 42, and while holding it raise or lower front standard.
Rear: Loosen knob 32, and while holding it raise or lower rear standard.
(b) Center Tilts
Front: Loosen knob 43, and holding lower part of front standard, push
forward or pull back.
Rear: Loosen knob 34, and holding lower part of rear standard, push
forward or pull back.
(c) Base Tilts
Front: Loosen knob 44, then release from notch in front base tilts arm (45).
Rear: Loosen knob 33, then release from notch in rear base tilts arm (35).
(d) Shift/Swing

the left or right.

the left or right.
Points to remember:
1) After making each adjustment, be sure to retighten the knobs or lever. If two
pairs of knobs are loose at the same time, particularly 33 and 34, the camera
becomes difficult to handle.
2) Loosen lock knobs 11 and 12 before making front focusing adjustments, and
lock knob 10 before making rear adjustments. Tighten again afterwards.
• To install/remove focusing frame (23), pull focusing frame release lever (21).

OPENING AND CLOSING SV45 CAMERAS
Please follow these instructions to avoid damaging the bellows.
The procedure is easier if the camera is placed on a tripod.
To open:
1) Lock rear shift/swing locking lever (18).
2) Squeeze camera and release latch (38) from pin.
3) Pull up rear standard (30) until vertical. Rear base tilts knobs (33) should enter
notches in rear base tilts arms (35). Tighten rear base tilts knobs (33).
4) Pull up front standard (3) with front rise/fall knobs (42) until it reaches maximum rise.
5) Lower front standard (3) until point on right front rise/fall arm (41) and
point on right of front standard are aligned (rise/fall zero position).
6) Tighten front rise/fall knobs (42). Front base tilts knobs (44) should enter
notches in front base arms (45). Tighten front base tilts knobs (44).
To close:
1) Ensure that all movements are returned to zero position, and front center
tilts knobs (43) are tightened.
2) Loosen front base tilts knobs (44), then front rise/fall knobs (42).
3) Pull front standard (3) up to maximum rise with front rise/fall knobs (42).
4) Pull front standard (3) backwards using front rise/fall knobs (42). While doing this
ensure that front standard remains at maximum rise. It will tilt towards the camera
bed (14) as it compresses the bellows (39).
5) Push front standard (3) down until it almost touches camera bed (14). Front base
tilts arms (45) should rest comfortably between front rise/fall arms (41) and front
rise/fall knobs (42).
6) Loosen rear base tilts knobs (33). Free them from notches in rear base tilts arms (35).
Push camera body down into closed position.
7) Squeeze camera shut and secure latch (38) to pin.
8) Unlock rear shift/swing locking lever (18).
