  • I just ran a B&W film through it, processed it, and everything now looks perfect. I'm sending out the camera for a CLA next week and will update this thread with their diagnosis. I don't really ...
  • I will still send it in for CLA and post the diagnosis, But thank you so much! Without your input, I would not have figured it out. Best!
  • With the prism finder in place, the lens shutter and the auxiliary shutter remain open after every other firing, i.e., every second time I cocked the shutter. Not random: every second time! When I ...
  • I was packing up the camera to send out for service and decided to ask them to fix a minor spring-issue with the waist-level finder. So I took the prism off (which I had bought separately) and put ...
  • OK, I take back my last post. I was packing up the camera to send to Atlanta for service and I decided to ask them to fix a problem with the spring on my waist-level finder. So, I put the finder ...
  • Lovely comment. I agree. Interestingly, I knew you were from the UK by just reading your post!
  • It is a puzzle. It is not the lens because it happens with all three of my Zenzanon lenses and, again, every second time -- unless I am supremely unlucky, in which case I will buy a lottery ticket ...
  • That's true. I've had pretty good luck with 35 mm SLRs and rangefinders so far. Thanks for the encouragement!
  • It seems to be more serious. Someone on the Film Forum suggested I check the shutter in multiple exposure mode. Without film in, the shutter fires but every second time it fires (i.e., every other ...
  • Thanks -- it seems to be something more serious (see below if interested) but thanks!
  • Thank you. That is a good suggestion. It is really weird: without film, in multiple exposure mode, the shutter fires but every second time (i.e., every other time I crank) it fires the shutter ...
  • Thank you for the reply. Having ruled out a problem with mirror because it works like yours does it sounds like the problem is the back and insert as you and another poster (on a different thread) ...
  • Very astute observation. There are two tiny rollers in the film back that sit just behind the dark slide at the top and the bottom. I had never noticed them but one had seized up. I managed to get ...
  • Thank you very much for the reply. It is very helpful to know that the mirror is behaving normally. All the best!
  • Created discussion thread Bronica SQ-A problem
    I posted this in the Medium Format Forum but maybe it is more appropriate here. Some time ago I picked up a Bronica SQ-A but never used it until this weekend. Anyway, there seems to be a big ...
  • Created question thread Bronica SQ-A problem
    Hello, Some time ago I picked up a Bronica SQ-A but never used it until this weekend. Anyway, there seems to be a big problem with the film advance and/or mirror. I am attaching a sample at the ...
  • Tom, Now, that is an insanely good idea. Have you any photos with this combo that could share? David
  • Thanks -- good advice re: the adapter and also the fringing.
  • Thanks for the comments. I plan to test the lens out on my rangefinder -- I have been toying with the idea of getting an RP as a lightweight FF hiking/backpacking camera and, if I do, thought it ...
  • Thank you so much for the very informative answer.
