I've found that my 6 works just fine at room temperature, but when I took it out for a shoot at 5C (about 40F), the shutter button wouldn't re-set, and thus I couldn't advance the film to the next exposure. I had a spare set of brand new batteries with me, so I popped those in. But still nothing. I thought later that perhaps if I had kept the batteries in my pocket, that might have made a difference. However, it wouldn't have taken very long for those tiny batteries to lose their small amount of heat to the massive bulk of the camera anyways.
I could use the "stop-release" button to re-set things, but I don't want to have to rely on that.
Back home, at room temperature, everything is back to normal.
Has anyone else had a similar problem with the 6 at cold temps? I see this thread is applicable: http://rangefinderforum.com/forums/s...6+shutter+cold
But I was just wondering if it's a common phenomenon? And and what temp's does the 6 start to act up? I'll have to sell the unit, but I'd like to be able to warn a potential buyer that at a certain temp, the camera is inoperable.
