In production here in Miami the camera shut down :D

We THINK its the humidity lock, since it gives the warning for it. Is there a way to override it perhaps?

Any tips from you old-school guys shooting with the BETA?


Anny tips would be greatly appriciated!

I'm pretty sure ther's a way... Did you wander around the configuration menus ? Problem is, if I remember well, that the 537 is at the very beginning of logical menus through the user's interface (viewfinder and scope)... So it must be a switch on a card... I'd seek a slack and humid switches somewhere ! Open that beast up !

Here's the iris setup card on that beast.

The only card I set myself on such a camera.

But you can see that the parameters are easy to read, so I guess it must be the same for the switches you're looking for. I wonder if there isn't even a labeling for the cards so that you can figure out a bit what they're about before you remove them. If so I'd look for an "operation" or "op" label by the card...
