6x7 Question

Picked up a 6x7 camera, complete with a manual; in Japanese

I figured out most everything else, but I'm not certain how to set the iso for the film I'm using. On the shutter speed dial, it looks like you rotate to a window that you can then lift and turn the dial to set iso. Is this correct, or am I changing something else when I turn this?

Nope. That's correct. Pull up the shutter speed dial (top part) and rotate it. The ISO you want will be dead-centre in the small window. Double check the small dots at intermediate settings as they are very small and it's easy to set the wrong ISO!
