Question about Contax G2 35mm Rangefinder Camera
The button on my Contax G2 doesn't emit the usual "click" when pressed all the way down for exposure, even at the single frame mode. It just makes this whirring sound somewhat similar to focusing noise. As a result, the film frame advances already even when I thought I was just focusing (pressing the shutter halfway).
It's worse at low speeds. The camera emits this low groaning sound and when I look at the negs, some frames are unintentionally double exposed. What could be the problem here?

SOURCE: no shutter/film advance
with electronic cameras, it is the control circuitry. send it for service. your service agent probably will replace the complete pcb as they don't know or wouldn't care to diagnose which minor component went wrong.

it sounds like its set up for a very slow shutter speed
ie:30sec's? and your getting triger happy trying to rush it to take the photo and get it over with, check when film speed its set on and what shutter speed its set to,and stop poking the mirror about or its going to cost you big time bucks getting it fixed,
