Electro 35 GT severely overexposing -- help!
Hey fellow Olympus shooters,
I'm back with another problem. As some of you may remember, my 35 GT was with Peter Robinson (monopix) two times now. The first time, it had some severe mechanical issues (among which the famous "pad of death" problem), the second time, some screws in the shutter assembly had gotten loose. When I last got it back, it was working flawlessly.
However, with the last roll I processed, starting at approx. frame #10, the camera started overexposing severly, but about 2 stops (approximated). I checked the ISO dial, it is seems to operate and be set correctly.
Peter has no idea (yet) what this could be, but he says probably not the battery. Could the light meter be failing? Do you guys have any ideas? Has this happened to any of you before, and have you found a fix for it?
Thanks a bunch in advance!
