Hassy 202FA shutter problem?

  1. Thank you Tom!
    Just another question: it seems to me that the baffle should rest at about 45° regardless of the position of the camera (facing down or pointed at the sky), how to avoid that the flexible material let the baffle moving up and down depending how you move the camera?
    If the camera is pointed at the sky the baffle could bend back towards the shutter and not be pushed up by the secondary mirror.
  2. The foam strip is slightly stiff, and springy, which keeps the flap against the bottom of the mirror when it is down. When the mirror goes up, the flap naturally gets trapped by the GLS and secondary mirror mechanism, which holds it tight up against the raised mirror during exposure.

    Don't know what it is like with shutter curtain material substituting for the foam.

    Hint: put the shutter selector on "B" (not "C"). trip the shutter and hold it open. Remove the battery and wait a a few seconds. The body will passively remain with the mirror up and the shutter open, making it easier to remove and replace the baffle. If you want to see what it looks like with the mirror down, just start the reset procedure (press the multiple exp/reset button and start winding), and the mirror will drop with the shutter remaining open.
  3. Thank you Tom, I will let you know how it will end.
