Question about Ricoh KR-5 SUPER II 35mm SLR Camera
All flash pictures taken at 125 sec are coming out dark on one half and ok on the other half. could the shutter be draging?
This is the dected flash that came with the camera, and worked well untill lately, chnged batteries as well.It appears to work fine in daylight.
Sounds like the shutter needs repair. Either the opening curtain is sticking or the closing curtain is not holding long enough. Another problem might be the camera's sync speed might be lower than 1/125 of a second. Many cameras use 1/60th or 1/90th of a second as their flash sync speed.
