    Oh.... OK. Well, the only exposure control difference I can think of off
    the top of my head is that the FA doesn't have an exposure compensation
    dial. But there are some other differences that I think are more important.
    Like the fact that the FA has a plastic aperture coupling, so you can't
    mount the older NON-AI lenses. And overall the camera is more cheaply made.

    Also, my cat is not allowed to use the computer when I am not home!
