    Never had a problem with my SQ-A, I always got amazing results from this camera. The AE prism works great if you know what you are doing and makes the camera really fast!!!

    I've had my SQ-A kit for about 5 years with fairly extensive use, and have never had any problems with the electronic shutter being faulty. In fact, I haven't even had to replace the battery yet! The only real issue that I've had is replacing the light trap / seals on my 120 and 220 backs, which I consider routine maintenance with most older camera gear.

    I've been very happy with the SQ-A.

Bronica had to compromise the camera to fit in the TTL flash circuitry by switching to four button batteries instead of the standard 6V battery. Button batteries were designed for 1970s 35mm cameras, not 120 SLRs. I finally got so fed up hassling with them that I sold the camera and bought an SQ-B
    But four button cells are the functional equivalent to one 6V battery. I've opened 6V silver oxide batteries, both Mallory PX28 and Eveready 544, and inside were four button cells. So there is no real difference. If there was a problem with your SQ-Ai it might have been with the battery holder or some other issue. If you didn't like the fiddling with button cells, well there is that about them.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
