I want to use my Speed G with studio flash. I have always used flashbulbs. I am confused with the markings on the shutter. It has an OFF position and to the left of it, is a black X. Immediately to the left of the black X is a red M for flashbulb sync. My question is: When the indicator is set to OFF, is it X sync ? Or do I have to move it a half milimeter to the left for it to be in X sync. The X and M are too close to each other so I am not sure if it is X or M in that position where the two letters, M and X are almost touching each other.
