Just thought I'd check and see if anyone here can confirm that I've got the same capacitor issue that crops up with x-700's. Basically everything seems to be working until I push down on the shutter release. As soon as I do it's as if I've turned the camera off. The LED's all go out and nothing else happens. If I do turn off the camera and then back on the LED's will light up when I touch the shutter. I thought the batteries might be dying but replacing them didn't solve the problem. If this is the capacitor(s) going bad, as I've read happens with X-700's, I think I'll probably send it to http://www.garryscamera.com/ for repair. Anyone else have this happen?
