Yesterday I was playing around with my old Pentax Spotmatic SPII, the one I had mentioned earlier and which I noted that I thought it had laid down and died.
I'm not sure what I did but I managed to release the mirror and started taking some images again. The mirror locked up again a few times but somehow I kept managing to persuade it down again.
Have a feeling it needs a good clean and oiling up a wee bit. Think I'll give it a go.
I hope it works cos I'm finding it quite fun again using it, in conjunction with a hand held light meter. The built in one really did give up the ghost years ago.
I'm finding out I'm having to re-learn everything again having been spoilt by the digital age. Spoilt is the right word.
