    I tried to leave the shutters on B when its not going to be used for a while, I believe its a good thing for a lot of mechanical cameras.

    Agreed. We've argued this, and many other, points before... and likely will again in the future. It is always interesting how great are the diversity of opinion and experience.

    Anti-clockwise, surely?

    I read the manual on my Leica and if I remember correctly it said that I should fire through all shutter speeds once every three months if I didn't use the camera.

    Unfortunately, experience is often misinterpreted and/or poorly observed. The facts stand on their own. Trouble is, many do not distinguish between facts and opinions.

    It also helps to mutter "ut tensio, sic vis" under your breath.

    Yes, of course... we agree quite vehemently.

    With regard to shutter excercise the discussion is frequently muddled because some people (both question askers and question answerers) mistakenly believe that they have proven experience making an unreliable or inaccurate shutter both reliable and accurate by excercising it. Can't be done.

    But to re-answer the original question... I don't "excercise" my shutters on a periodic basis but know doing that surely can't hurt anything at all. In fact, it might have a beneficial side-effect: one can determine if the shutter needs servicing PRIOR to putting it into sevice where failure is undesired.

    Yes, that really helps me "snap back" into reality!

    I should get "Hooke'd" on doing that prior to using any shutter!
