    You must be really proud of this photo as you seem to have posted it 10 times already TODAY.

    Is there a story behind this you would like to share?

    No need to disappear Kirion Kid :smile:, I just purchased RC35 for the third time, 2 times I have sold it, now I am keeping it. It is a beautiful small camera :smile:.

    I love my 35RC, but I've had a crazy problem that happens 3-6 time per roll. It seems to be caused only when using auto exposure. The negative looks like one of the shutter leaves is moving slowly. It leaves a one stop overexposure of one stop over half of the frame. I had it CLAd by reputable repairman. But after about a year and a half this problem started. I saw another person at photonet with the same problem and neither of us could explain.

    Can"t help you with that - I am using it without batteries, always in manual mode.

    Thanks. Have a roll of Delta 400 in it now. Metering is decent enough for color film?

    Thanks

    I removed original lens shade in favor of 43.5 to 46mm adaptor ring.
