Small (?) Service on my Seagull 4A.
The shutter was firing late so I had to follow my curiosity and demount a few things. The Fresnel lense on top was an easy part but the view at the mirror and its mount was a bit scary.
At the end the whole plate of the shutter switch was bent and after the slight correction the whole levers don’t fit correctly anymore and I will have to fix a lever bearing to get it back to work … later on.
PS: The missing viewer lense unveils the working horse in front of the seagull then.
Beeing out for a mall walk on this sunny Sunday in late September, I found those nice “lightened up” grapes.
Initially I only wanted to test my new KIRON 70-210 after repair. But it turned out quickly that beside all manual focussing and aperture setting, this lense has a huge potential on the D7k. I tried even a few macro shots with the 210 mm but I shouldn’t take any coffee before those hand-held macro attempts ;)
