Vitessa T: How to???
my new toy arrived this afternoon,
the shutter was a bit slow to react at first, after a few dry-fire it came back better
it is sure a great example of German camera engineering,
great shape and make, the extraordinary handling is such fun
...until, i didn't know how, the shutter stop opening!
i notice that the counter stop advance,
even when i press the combi-plunger to the bottom,
i have a feeling that the plunger did not 'catch' the clocking mech
(the shutter release can be pressed down but the shutter did not fire)
AND the film spool can move back and fore freely,
that couldn't be right in Advance mode (otherwise you don't need the Rewind button, right?)
could it be stuck at Rewind mode...or what?
i've checked the instruction manual,
it just said press the rewind button and then rewind the film
there's no mention of any other action after rewinding the film.
did i miss a certain trick to release the camera from Rewind mode?
i have played with the self timer (V), the lever is a bit rusty and it is slooooow
but i believe it had completed travelling finally and i have set the V/X/M lever back to M position.
