    Hello all;
    Good to have this group available. The existing posts are all informative and appreciated.
    I recently developed a roll of garden frames and was surprised to see no images! Never happened before and I have used this since 1972. A sunny day with 400 b&w, all at 500.
    I removed the back and checked the curtain. Good light all the way up to 500, then none!
    Harry Fleenor says send it over. I'm sure he can take care of it. In the meantime I'm shooting 125 film at speeds below 1/500. I recall an Aussie post that resolved the matter in the same way. Reason for posting here is to say hello and ask if any similar encounters by any one of this select group.
    Best to all, Bill in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

    btw I read Bruce Robbins from time to time and I see that he found this group a while back. He writes well.
