first of all, I'm a total beginner when it comes to shooting film, using film cameras. I bought an Aaton XTR off ebay (I know, risky!) with the intention of learning how to shoot film and eventually shooting more film.
So, considering I don't know much yet (I have a DP-friend who regularly shoots film), I encountered the following:
after plugging in the battery, the LCD display seems to malfunction. It keeps displaying some weird signs as opposed to proper numbers. Now I don't know if that's my fault (eg. if I'm doing anything wrong) or if it's the camera.
I'll have the camera serviced in a couple of weeks anyway, just wanted to check if I it might have to be repaired and if I have to expect to put an extra bunch of money into it.
Attached is a picture of the LCD display. Maybe one of you can help me out?
Thanks in advance!
