KX meter issues

Hmm. Well, I'll take a peek and see if there's dirty contacts... It seems as reasonable an explanation as any, given that it's not working so much of the time. I'm not feeling or hearing anything at the halfway point on the shutter, though.

Wish I knew where there was a camera repair shop locally, though... :|

Oddly enough, the needle's going down to the 1000 instead of the 250 on battery check, now.

KX meter issues

I bought a used KX off of a prof at the school I go to the other day, and was out shooting my first roll with it today. I enjoyed the camera, but I'll say this much: I'm glad I had a hand-held meter with me.

I'm not sure if I'm just not doing something right, but about half of the time, even when I pulled the film advance lever out the way that the manual says to do if you want to use the meter, the needle was hovering up above the 1000 mark, in the space it goes when it's turned off. Periodically it would come back down into the main range, where it typically matched my handheld meter, but this always happened *after* I took an exposure.

If I hit the battery check button, the needle goes down to around the 250 mark. Said battery's only been in it since Monday.

Has anyone seen this issue before, and if so, know how to fix it?

That'd be what I needed to know... Though I still think that if someone could say for sure if that's the case, it'd help.

LeoTaylor modified his K110D for Astrophotgraphy, and the same mods work great with IR photography as well.
Here's the link.

Aah, if only I had the money to get a second camera at the same time...

Uhh... Well, that doesn't answer any part of my question at all, but thanks... I was planning on getting the Super *for* the SDM compatibility if the infrared capability hasn't been gimped compared to the K100D, though. It's secondary to the infrared, but is indeed one of the major selling points for me.

I'm getting ready to buy my first DSLR in the next month or two, and have a question that's probably going to determine whether I go with the K100D or the K100D Super... Between the K100D and the Super, was the infrared sensitivity of the CCD unit changed at all, or is that unaffected by the changes between the two models?
