Hi all. Today I received my new to me latest toy, an Airesflex Type Z with Showakoki Coral lenses. I'm quite familiar with TLRs but this particular model has a sort of quirky film transport mechanism. I searched for a manual online @ butkus but they don't have one. There are 2 buttons on the right hand side of the camera, one is above and just to the left of the focusing knob and button #2 is set into the film advance knob itself. When I press button #1 (not really a press, more of a slide it to the side), nothing happens (no film loaded, back is open). When I press button #2 (no film loaded, back open, take up spool in correct slot), the take up spool is released & jumps out of the slot. The film counter (which previously shows not-quite-frame number 1), is now totally blank. Next, I press buttons #1 & #2 together. film counter now shows the letter 'S'. I presumed this meant start so I loaded up a roll, aligned the arrows with the start mark, closed the back and wound the advance knob until it stopped at frame 1. I shot off a frame and to my surprise the film advance knob now won't turn at all. After much fiddling, I found out that by pressing button #2, I was able to advance to the next frame. Weird ain't it? My findings are pretty much repeated here: http://nikomat.org/priv/camera/mednikkor/aires/aires-e.html, although in a sort of Japenglish, so I'm not quite sure if I understand it correctly. Does anyone have the same camera? I'd appreciate if anyone can confirm this is indeed how the Airesflex works.
