    Bronica SQ-Ai & Speed Grip S - Darn thing won't work!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm having an issue with my SQ-Ai & the Speed Grip.

    I am able to advance the film but it refuses to trip the shutter.

    Also I noticed that as soon as I install the grip on the camera, the battery check LED lights up.

    The camera works just fine without the grip...


    Thanks for the help,


    G

    It has to be a battery connection issue, as far as I know there is no mechanical linkage. Have a look at all the electrical connections and clean them up with isopropyl alcohol and try again using a new set of batteries.

    Thanks. Tried that. Same results.

    Off to the recycling bin!

    Speed Grip S? I thought that was for the non SQ-Ai models. (I'm not 100% sure because I've never used an SQ-Ai. Just SQ-A and SQ-Am.

    Speed Grip.
    On the speed grip on my SQa there is a small flat button on the base of the grip that locks the shutter finger from pressing on the release button on the front of the camera I have more than once left it in the lock position without realizing it and the grip would advance but not fire the shutter .
