View Full Version : Bessa T long exposure and meter stays on?

I just ran into something peculiar with the Bessa-T while doing a star trail photo..

I had the camera on B, pushed the cable release and locked it. As I'm used to the light meter staying live for 10seconds after each exposure, I didn't give a thought to the leds on the back, and went inside so that the camera could do its work 'alone in the dark..'

When I came back however, the leds were still on!

Anyone else noticed this too? Is this supposed to be?

I can take the batteries out when doing a long exposure, but it's plain weird that I have to..

Mine does that too, Peter.
Good to know, I somehow feared that it might have been a consequence of a repair..

I got the idea and will check it for Bessa R:confused:

Hey, why do you need batteries for time exposures anyway? My Bessa L definitely has this "feature" too.
