Question about Hasselblad 503CX Medium Format Camera
I am looking at purchasing a 503cx and noticed that when the rear curtain folds back after firing sometimes the bottom curtain does not close fully, leaving a tiny gap that does let in a tiny amount of light. This does not occur every time. And the gap this is present is about 3mm. I thought this could be from lack of use as the camera has not been used for about 6 months. Any Advice. Thanks
It's a sign the mechanism needs a cleaning and lube. Temporarily you might try releasing the shutter ( without a lens mounted ) and locking the release button down. Then CAREFULLY from the back, put a little upward pressure on the metal curtain 1/4 inch or so, to twist the curtain slightly on it's shaft. Don't pull to far or you can do permanent damage. You should have a repair shop take care of it.
