Thread: Shutter wont cock

    Shutter wont cock

    I received a commercial-astragon 210 lens today and *saw* it work over-and-over perfectly when the quy was telling me how to use it, but when I got home, cocked the shutter - fired it, then tried to cock it again IT DIDNT WORK! What on earth could be wrong? Is there some kind of trick with this crazy lens?

    Shutter wont cock

    What kind of shutter? On some of them, there is a preview button. If it is partially depressed, the shutter won't cock.

    There is no name on the shutter, the only thing for identification is the lens (Commercial-Astragon 210mm). The preview button is slid all the way down. I've tried everything I know except for some type of special sequence. Geez - that sounds like it's a lock! I can take a picture of it for you if you email me jeremyrardin@gmail.com

    Why not call the guy back and ask him? Better still, go back to the store and ask for another demo...

    I would be careful with messing around with trying different things with the shutter since some of the older shutters were sequence-dependant, and you could damage the shutter if operations were done out of order.
