Should I Repair My Konica FC-1?

I recently acquired a Konica Fc-1 as part of a larger deal. The meter is not wurking and the shutter occasionally sticks. Is this model worth the cost of repair? Should I look for another Konica body? If so, which of their later manual-focus bodies are most reliable? Thanks, Glenn shutter doesn't work all the time on a Konica Autoreflex A3. Is it worth repairing?

A Konica FC-1 or A3 with a 50mm lens typically sells for $75 or less on E-bay. Get an estimate from a camera repair man. If it is cheaper to buy a "new" camera, go to E-bay or Craig's list. By the way, Konica is a mid-grade camera. For the same money, you should consider a top rated Nikon or Cannon.

I am looking for a die-cast model larger than scale of 1:43 of a Holden FC Utility (Ute) anywhere in the world please

Look up some of the early year Holden forums on the net that cover the the FE and FCs and others around that era. Join up and ask if someone has one of these FC cast models for sale. You are much more likely to be successful and if not someone may be able to give you a lead to follow up. You will be very lucky to find an FC Ute model though.

Over-level water error on samsung DMT300RFS

My DMT300RFS had the same symptoms, but the float chamber (fc) has a somewhat different configuration, and is white plastic, vs clear. PULL THE MAIN POWER CORD!!!! To remove the fc, first go inside the tub, and remove the round fixture that holds the larger chamber on the outside. The fc attaches to it. The round fixture is not threaded, and gentle use of channel locks will pop it off, after about a 1/8th turn (see arrows). My fc could nnot be removed unless the entire assembly is take off the outside of the tub. After the entire assembly is removed, disconnect any electrical connections. I had two. Release the clip holding the fc to the complete assembly (looks somewhat similar to the one pictured above--thanks capnjosh) then take the retainer clip off the fc feed hose, disconnect the hose and remove the fc from the dishwasher. It's tight! There are several capture clips holding the top onto the fc, but I decided not to fuss with them (breakage concern) and simply used hot water and dish soap to rinse the fc till gunk stopped coming out. Back together and all seems well! Best wishes.

Why does the camera lag when i take pictures?

The camera has to do a lot of work between the time you press the shutter release button and it takes a picture. It has to determine what the subject is and acquire focus, meter the light to set the exposure, and reconfiguring itself internally from displaying the image on the screen to saving it into memory. More sophisticated (and larger and heavier and more expensive) DSLRs alleviate the problem by throwing more hardware at it.

You can reduce the shutter lag by anticipating the action. Press the shutter release button halfway to make the camera focus and meter. Then, when the action peaks, press the shutter release button the rest of the way to take the picture.
