Hello guys,

just a quick and maybe stupid answer.. finally receiced my PL mount lens so mounted on my new A-MINIMA camera I have discovered that:

without a magazine the camera stops with the mirror-shutter in viewing position

with a magazine the camera stops with the mirro-shutter in NON viewing position

 

I'm not an expert about the Minima but I think that is non correct, so there is a way to check what can be wrong?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Giorgio

How is the condition of the battery? Have you tried charging it?

Sounds like your shutter timing might be off. The shutter belt might be going bad.

I think so.

Received an answer from Aaton and they said that mirror/shutter needs to be re-setted correctly as mine is running just the opposite way...so with a magazine on, the camera should stop in viewing position, without a magazine the camera should stop in NON viewing position.

 

I will send it to Grenoble for the job and to have it cleaned and checked.
