View Full Version : Technika IV back release locks

2-Jun-2010, 19:44
The two little spring-loaded press-here latches which hold the back to the main body are so stiff that I can't release them with the camera on a tripod. Is this normal -- (I notice that the Master Technika has replaced them with sliding locks for this function)?

Mine is the same way. What I do is while pressing the button with my thumb, I reach through the front with my index finger and push on the top rods until they release from the body. Of course, you want to make sure the locking knobs are loose first.
