    Missing images

    After a got my new Bessa I folder late last year I have not used my Blad for three months. I went last weekend to take some pictures for Post Card exchange.
    When I developed film # 8;10;11; and 12 were missing? I took the camera and tried dry with the back on and with the back off at least 15-20 times to fire camera and each time the lens fired and the back curtain opened? What do you think happened to loose those shuts? It happened once before early last year but I thought because it was very cold outside, winter was responsible for the failure.

    Thanks in advance Greg

    Any chance the frame counter was acting up?

    is the lens shutter working properly? I have an old 80mm C lens that suddenly began not staying open on the B setting, resulting in blank frames when shooting in very low light at 1:00+ times.

    1) lens cap on

    2) severely underexposed?

    3) Flash issues?

    Thanks Guy's
    I did not mention that first three images were double exposures? The cap was off and I did use mirror lift before exposures. Maybe lens shutter hung shut? But when I came home and tried it it worked fowlessly?

    Sounds like a winder gear issue. They may be slipping and not advancing the film properly with each (or sporadically) shot. I'd bring it to a tech and have it looked at.
