I just aquired an absolutly mint D12 - but unfortunately no light meter action..... Just a couple of questios from this noivice:
* Any ideas about a repair on this camera?
* If not - how about operating the camera in Manual Mode and any hints on how to do that.

Thanx very much in advance for any help that is offered.

Cheers

I have a minolta D10 with the same problem, good news for you the d12 has manual mode where the d10 doesnt, im pretty sure the aperture adjustment is on the side . Shame about these cameras, they have beautiful glass with dodgy components. http://www.nakanocam...ad12eerepa.html
