It's doubtful that there would be much of a standard
in this regard across the spectrum of super-8 cameras.
I dunno either way. I do know tho that "XL" is/was
Canon's cute abbreviation for "existing light"--i.e.
the capacity for the shutter angle to be widened (a
little bit--maybe only say 2/3 stop) for so-called
"low light" situations. The knob/switch position
indicated by the funny window icon is the titular XL
switch. (I'm assuming "S" is shutter but am not sure.
I'll consult the manual on this sometime in the nect
three or four years and report back to you all.)
