  1. I recently purchased this Yashica T3 camera in almost mint condition for more or less current market value. The previous and only owner said they literally only used it once. I popped in a roll, began to shoot, but after about 5 frames with perfect operation, I noticed that the after the 6th shot, one of the camera aperture blades seems to have gotten stuck. I tried to shake the camera while pressing the shutter in order to see if I could get the blade to be released but it has not worked. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this without a crazy complex disassembly (the shutter assembly seems very difficult to get to - A repair manual can be downloaded here: MEGA)?
  2. I recently picked up a Hasselblad 500ELM in pretty nice shape, though it's jammed. I disassembled the camera a few times, and finally figured out the likely issue. For whatever reason, when you fire the camera, it jams mid-firing sequence, it goes far enough for the mirror to flip up, but stops just short of the lens' shutter fully closing before the exposure, and before the rear doors open. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? At one point I had removed the internals from the camera's shell, but couldn't find a way to remove the large gear that couples from the motor drive to the film advance gear. Anyone have any advice? A repair manual would be incredibly helpful, I did find a 555ELD repair manual, and a 500CM manual, but both cameras have enough differences from the 500ELM that it was only partially helpful. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
