I don't know if you remember, but few weeks ago I bothered you with my doubts regarding the choise between the Contax G and the medium format.
Even if almost everybody suggested me to choose the MF (and, more in particular, the Bronica RF) in the end I bought a G2.
To say the truth I was looking for a Bronica, but during my research (in Italy Bronica RF is quite rare), I found an occasion I could not refuse: G2 + Planar + Biogon 28 + TLA 200 for the incredible price of 500 Euro!!! God bless digital!!!!!
Well, I have just received the item from a french ebay user and I was testing it.
I have this problem: the flash does not fire.
I'll try to explain the problem more in detail:
- by pressing the TEST button the flash operates normally.
- when I mount the TLA on the camera, the mark in the viewfinder turns on and the shutter speed is set at 1/60. So this means the camera "sees" the flash (I don't know if you are understanding my terrible English...
- nevertheless if I take a picture the flash doesn't fire.
As I have just received the camera, maybe I am doing something wrong (I DO hope I am doing something wrong).
If you have understood my poor English, have you any suggestions?
By the way, the G2 despite of its noisy autofocus, is really a joy camera.
