    My mirror-up is still stuck up. The 127mm Z, RZ body, and
    the 120 back could all stand a clean up and maintanence. I
    live in the Northwest and the closer to home I find a good shop
    the better. But where ever, how about a pointer. Dan

    just a thought, can you or have you tried to take the batteries out of this camera and then see if the mirror will drop down?

    The RBs and RZs have a mirror lock-up mode. That mode is
    set at the LENS. On the RZ the mode is set by screwing in a
    cable release. Doing that disengages the shutter from the
    camera body shutter release. On disconnecting the
    cable the shutter is SUPPOSED to reengage with
    the body release. Dan
