A doubt about 645N + Cable Switch F

Hello dear Pentax Fans,


I have a question about the combined use of Pentax 645N with Cable Switch F.

Basically: I want to buy this camera + 75mm FA from a not very informed seller, that is very far from me, so I can't test the camera. The camera is in great conditions on the pictures...

I asked for a video about basic use, and the problem is: He sent me a video describing a big problem... the camera doesn't shoot from the Shutter Release on camera... BBBUT,

from the attached Cable Switch F, the camera focus AND shoot.


So my question is: when the Cable Switch F is attached to the body... this automatically disable the shutter release on the body from shooting?? Or with the cable attached, both the "2 release shutter button" should work?

I ask this because I can't convince the seller to send me a video without Cable Switch F!

Thank you very much!

Just tested this on my 645n.The answer is when the cable F is attached, BOTH the cable F and normal shutter button work, period. Also, the AF works with both as well.

Hope that clears this up.

Thank you so much Blackcloudbrew, this clears everything up... It is basically a broken shutter release on my 645N, and I think it is better to abort mission and don't buy it.

Again thank you for saving me from a very impulsive buy... I'll wait for the next one!

I suspect that's a good call. Hope you find a fully working one. I've really enjoyed using mine. Best of luck.
