Hullo Everybody. I've bought a R8 and a Motor Drive. After rebuilding the Akku Battery Pack at a very inexpensive cost - the Camera seems to work very well. All functions work properly - slides are perfect etc etc. I'm only trying to use the "R lever" function in front of the Motor Drive (squared in red in picture) - I suppose is the command for a quick rewind of film when all exposed. Am I right..? At the end of shooting I move the "R Lever" aside - as indicated - but nothing happens. I tried some combinations with others levers and knobs and nothing happens neither. Can anyone give suggestions or instructions or direct to literature / you tube for understanding the "R Lever" on Motor Drive function ? Thanks in advance to all. Mauro
I am sure that this has been posted before, but a few days ago, I wish I had recently seen (and remembered) such a post. On vacation, shooting 3-8 rolls/day. After 1 week, the digits of the shutter speed and frame number start flashing at random. I checked the camera carefully, all settings are as usual. Also, sometimes, the shutter speed in the viewfinder did not match that on the shutter speed dial by a 1/2 step, but resets back and match again by setting the shutter speed to "B" and back. Two days later, the Motor Drive ... does not drive anymore. If wound up manually, the R9 shoots normally. That's when I thought to take the Motor Drive off, then put it back on again. Everything is back to normal again! I knew that the contacts between the R9 and the Motor Drive were critical. I just never had experienced that problem before and was not aware of the "presenting symptoms". I hope this can help someone else with an R9 (R8?) and a Motor Drive (Motor Winder?). Guy
