Hi All,

I have a Beirette Junior 2 camera 1960's Vintage which I would like to run a
black & white film through.
However there is a small lever on the back, top right hand side with "T at
one end and R at the other"
Can anyone tell me what this lever is for?
Many thanks in advance

I'm pretty certain that the lever is the film rewind release.
In "t" mode the film should wind forwards normally. To rewind
the film at the end, you need to move the switch to "r" so that
the forward winding system is out of gear so that you can use
the rewind knob to rewind the film into the magazine.
