the mirror, is not the shutter

if you raise the mirror with your finger (or if you are like many who tremble at such a thought, use something else, like a mini flatheat driver or something)

you will actually see the shutter mechanism, this goes for both film and digital.

so you can go ahead and change your lenses with full confidence.

and i think the K1000's have a cloth shutter, which is rather cool.

Press the bayonet lock, and twist counterclockwise. Remove from body, select new lens. line up marks, and rotate new lens clockwise until it locks in place.

Unless you're referring to some old rangefinder or TLR with a leaf shutter in the lens.... the shutter in the body keeps the film unexposed. No need to worry about light when changing lenses.

Is this another sign that film is becoming mysterious and magical?

(still occasionally catching myself wondering how the back opens on my K20d. )

Yeah - or how 'bout clicking the shutter on the ME Super and then glance at the back to see what the picture looks like! Ok - I only did that once (maybe twice).

changing lenses with film

don't worry, changing lenses with film cameras is easier than with digital cameras; no need to worry about sensor cleaning or anything!

film loading can be the trickiest, although I've always found Pentax cameras (well the SLRs anyway) easy to load.

Have fun. I miss the sound of my super A shutter (my DS is soooo loud) and cranking the rewind lever!

I'm after an LX, I need a bit of old technology that bad!

The flip side of that coin is when you go back from film to digital and find your right thumb whiffing the air after every shot.

Without sounding cheeky, exactly the same way as you would do it without film in the camera.

I mostly use my MX with winder so I don't have that problem. in fact quite the opposite. when I use a spotmatic, I find myself going to click the shutter, realizing it inst cocked. I would however love to see someone 'wiffing the air' trying to cock a digital.

Just come watch me anytime I'm using both film and digital bodies on the same shoot. I do it over and over and over.
