C220 lens curves usage

Please clarify the usage of the lens curves in relationship with the focus distances in the lateral table (computer)!

The Robb Smith book explains correctly the exposure compensation and parallax adjustment in the finder, but the explanation of the curves seems too obscure!

I thought that these curves were for the depth of field!

I've sold mine, but I remember these being for the light fall off and the depth of field per lens set. Check the manual.

According to the manual (and I tend to put some faith in what the manufacturer writes) they are for parallax and exposure compensation due to extension of the bellows.
