thebarnman Posted November 3, 2010 Share #261 Posted November 3, 2010 (edited) Advertisement (gone after registration) If you hit the rewind switch only once the film leader remains exposed [i guess it makes it easier to extract the film if you are 'self developing'] But, if you hit the rewind button a second time, it will wind the film fully into the cassette. It's been a while, however I'm sure there's been many times I have done that with my R9's winder. That, and I do know there are times I have manually wound it the rest of the way after the motor stops using the "rewind crank." Of all the film I put through my R9, there may have been one or two times I slightly (very lightly) touched the shutter blades...maybe once with film in front of it and other time possibly with the tip of my finger (I know, very bad!) Very scary since I do remember reading in the manual about that warning. I have never had film stuck in the blades however. I don't believe there is any damage at all with my R9.
