Is there anything available online or in this site to help me learn to operate my SSG? I am confused about the stops on the rail and exposure compensation for extending the bellows. Thanks.

The only differences between a Super and Super Speed Graphic is the label on the bed lip. The Super Speed came with a Graflex 1000 shuttered lens and the Super did not.

Bellows extension compensation is explained well here:

Bellows extension factors are of no concern unless you are doing close up work.
Subjects focused on from infinity to 6 to 10 feet will require less than 1/3 stop exposure compensation.
