This 'them' you refer to :D
Are we talking some kind of shoal, a pod or some such ?
Run of chocolate fish on Columbia River...could go viral in a world hungry for good news

Hi Guys
The daughters new K-70 is reported to be operating correctly in daylight
but shutter doesn't open in the dark...
She has had K-x and K-50 before so knows the menu :)
Tried to get more info but she is on the other side of the planet and was using the F word about it :D
reckons she's tried all known settings

Suggested trying to replicate by putting lens cap on and off...
must be a setting, maybe there's some low light shutter delay setting she selected !

any clues much appreciated

Looks like film bodies are garnering interest these days on TM
Same thing with turntables...Just built a plinth for a Garrard 401...the prices are silly
nostalgia and authenticity in short supply

I'd be tempted to dedicate a small selection of preset auto Takumars to it
and be done with it.

Edit: or go all in and gut the whole body and stick it in an "extended" Spotmatc shell
Dump about 8 buttons whilst at it :-D

I'll ask her to bring it back when she comes again

Thanks very much for all the help full detailed replies!
I have forwarded to the protagonist
she's a confirmed Av user
I can't see me pulling the camera open to do the repair
so it might be passed on to another opportunist

I guided the daughter into a K-70 after the K-50 I bought her
got 'the issue'.
Pretty disgusted this went over several models...
She is wondering what to do with it?
Is it worth anything?
