Yep, did that. The camera looks like new, no corrosion there. I think it is maybe a PC board issue.

Will let you guys know if I find anything worth reporting.

Thank you Henry

I will look into that...I don't mind slower options on low value items...on high value items I will obviously think differently.

I will typically buy 5 - 10 rolls at a time but I was hoping for postage not double or three times the value of the purchase.

Will get back to you soon!

Cheers,

Anton

Hello Wheatfield

I suspected that due to the relative cold but the batteries are brand new and it did the same on me today on a pleasant warm afternoon.

I reckon something on the camera's insides are not perfectly happy so, unless I am missing something small it will be a no-buy decision...

Cheers,

Anton

This is just awesome, guys!

Sitting at the bottom tip of Africa I have drooled all over my PC many a times while watching all the nice stuff at B&H...

Can anyone tell me if shipping will work out cheaper than the prices quoted on their site?

In the short to medium term I will not be in a position to buy much more than some roll film but it does seem a bit steep paying 10 or more times the price of a roll of 120 for shipping...are there no cheaper alternatives?

Or maybe I should ask the pro directly...

Cheers all!

Very curious to know.

Hello everyone

I went out to do star trails last night and, having loaded a roll of Ektachrome 100, I wanted to see how it would handle long exposures.

It was chilly out but nowhere near freezing...every time I fired the shutter the LCD display lost or forgot the frame count number which led me to believe that the camera thought there was a new film in every time the film was advanced.

I used up the remainder of the roll at home and saw that the film was loaded correctly.

Any thoughts on this?

Much appreciated.

Anton

Hello Guys and Girls.

I have been shooting Pentax for more than two decades and I am currently looking at getting some 67 Medium Format film bodies.

My work camera is a *ist DL and I own 4 K-1000 film cameras with an assortment of lenses.

My digital gear is Canon, though, hope you guys won't hold that against me...

I look forward to getting to know you all
