Question about Mamiya 645 Medium Format Camera
I did not use this camera for some time .battery was left in [dumb] I replaced batt. and loaded film shutter opens but will not close until I push down on batt. check button .The i noticed new batt. was comletely drained film ruined of course.No big deal but what could be wrong and what can I do to fix? Nick
Get any crud from the battery out of the works with pH-neutral stuff and q-tips or lint-free towels, and see if it works (without film; might as well check current drain with a bench supply instead of a battery, too) once you've done a satisfactory job of that. Then visit a shop so they can see if the shutter timing is tolerable...and perhaps sometime you can load film in again.
