Re: Minolta XD-11, need to wind twice?

Sorry, but this sounds to me like some part worn out, or lacking lubrification (or an excess which got sticky), or lacking spring tension. Sometimes it may be just a case of some dust/dirt and the lack of usage and things may improve when the cam returns to more frequent use.

A difference to modern cams is that the mechanical stuff could be repaired - as long as you find someone who still as the skills, as well as perhaps needed spare parts.
