    FUJI GW690 III How is right?

    Hi guys! After I finished shooting the film, I make the final rewind with a lever. After the opening the lid and take out the clip of the film.
    But then after the final coiling we cocking!
    If the lid is closed by pressing the shutter release button, nothing happens. BUT as soon as opened the back cover and the counter reset button is unlocked and you can release the shutter. Q: how to store the camera with the shutter cocked or deflated. The guide never said!

    Thanks

    I would store it uncocked just on the principle less strain on any springs in the assembly.

    You can fire off the shutter before you close the back.

    The general practice seems to be storing the camera with the shutter uncocked and set to T. As mentioned, you can fire an empty camera with the back open.

    And have one more question: can I change the shutter speed after the cocking shutter on Fuji he690 iii ? Or it may corrupt the mechanism? Thanks

    You can change the shutter speed after coking the shutter.
