Minox 35 GL F/stop ring needs adjusting

Discussion in 'Minox' started by steve_d|6, Oct 29, 2017.

  1. Received this older Minox from an overhaul. All seemed to function well except my shots were improperly exposed when on flash.

    Otherwise the exposure worked fine.

    Then I noticed the f/stop ring was improperly adjusted during the overhaul. The most it would go toward the high number f/stop was between f/11 and f/16. The extreme setting for the other direction (wide open) was to have the marker approximately half a stop beyond f/2.8.

    So, when using an automatic flash, and setting to the f/stop recommended, I am off what is required.

    With the automatic operation of the shutter at any f/stop within the range of good exposure and not using a flash, it probably doesn't matter much.

    Is it possible to adjust the orientation of the f/stop ring to the proper limits or should I go thru the aggravation of removing the film and sending it back? If there is an easy way please advise.

  4. Are you using a Minox flash? I suppose a workaround for the aperture would be adjusting the ISO setting the bottom of the camera.
