    Blank film with RB67

    I just developed 2 rolls of film from my RB67 that came out completely blank. I have no idea how that happened. Luckily I can reshoot, but it's pretty alarming.


    The edge markings are developed and I just used the developer to develop some negatives within the last week, so I don't think the developer died on me. I didn't put the fix in first, because the edge markings are there.

    I'm not an expert with the RB67 but I've shot a few rolls through it since I got it. The camera has been sitting for a while, but it worked last I used it. I didn't leave the dark slide in, because I remember taking it out and the RB won't fire with the darkslide in anyway. It was slightly overcast weather so I don't think I could have underexposed that much even if I tried--it's 400 speed film and the camera only goes up to 1/250th of a second and f/32. I suppose the only explanation is that the lens shutter did not fire. Any other ideas?
    f/22 and be there.

    It turns out that the little knob-thing on the lens is important.

    This is the first time I used this lens and it turns out the mirror-up was set, so the shutter never fired.

    O well.

    Bettersense to learn now

    Don't feel bad I loaded a hasselblad wrong once and shot one roll on the paper.

    Same thing happened to me in Lisbon a few weeks ago, taking portraits of someone I met on the street. (can't re-shoot this) I hope I will never forget the MLU again.

    I still take double exposures with mine. Or skip a frame thinking I will take a double exposure.

    Very common mistake when not familiar with the new camera. There are a few more mistakes you have to make... we look forward to hearing about em soon.

    All part of the learning curve, anyone who has not done the same tells lies.
