R4S light meter issue

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I recently purchased an R4S and I have been having some issues with the light meter. When shooting outdoors with 100 speed ISO my meter has been saying I am over exposed even at F 16. Also when I open and close the aperture there is no change in the light meter reading. I have replaced the battery but still have had the same issue. Any advice on this issue? Thanks

Hi Mike!


It looks, as if the leaver for the aperture-control is not moving. It's "sticking" in open position, probably because the leaver is slightly bent and is not catched the by the lens "aperure ring".


To test, if the aperture control works in principal, try to move the leaver - on the botton - carefull with your finger. In the viewfinder you should then see then the change of the speeds.
