Just recently I picked up an old Grey model Canon Scoopic. I re-celled the batteries and now I'm checking the functions of the camera to see what works.
The battery check on the camera reads properly but when I switch to auto exposure mode and half press the shutter the meter inside the viewfinder doesn't move no matter how bright or dark the object is. Also, when I switch to manual mode and move the aperture from 1.6 to 22 the viewfinder doesn't lose any light its just as easy to see through the viewfinder at 1.6 as it is at 22. With nothing working, I set it to manual and look down the lens barrel to see if I can see the aperture opening or closing inside the lens when I move from 1.6 to 22 but nothing looks like its moving in there either.
Anyone who has used a Canon Scoopic original or M, MN, MS ever run into this problem?
I'm new to this camera system and 16mm but it seems that something is wrong with my aperture not engaging.
