So from the button or the shutter itself? Any difference between the two? It's a folding one, isn't it?

Yeah its a folder, I have been using the button on the shutter. It doesn't seem to make a difference on or off the camera.

Nasty piece of junk! Oh the irony. Anyhoo... dunno if I said, but I may have found some new lenses for my Mamiya Six Automat folder. I've asked a few questions of the seller (in Japan) and hopefully I can order it soon. The camera is great, but fungus has etched most of the surfaces, and I held little hope for finding spares other than a whole camera. 2015jpsames on ebay has Olympus and Sekor sets for sale, also a bunch of cases - mine has the wrong case, it should have the tripod boss at one end instead of in the middle ( like a Vitomatic).

No, you didn't mention. Great news if you can get some lenses for it, looked a nice bit of kit. I picked up an Olympus XA rangefinder but it has a shutter fault. No matter what aperture or iso its set on, it only fires at one speed. Also, still no closer to sorting out the Kodak, nothing looks obviously wrong which is frustrating.

Figured out what is wrong with the shutter. The shutter blade drive hook spring is broken. Its attached to the cocki.ng lever and latches when you set the shutter. If held right gravity latches it, any other position and it misses. I have two choices, replace it but will have to remove the main spring and retension when done, or tip the camera to the left when cocki.ng the shutter.

Nice bit of detective work there. How did you work that out?

I lifted the escapement out and removed the flash contacts. I was fiddling with it and then noticed it wouldn't latch. So now got to figure out what to do about it. I've sent Chris Sherlock at Retina Rescue for advice.
