EOS 1N RS Stuck Eyepiece Shutter
The eyepiece shutter on my 1N RS seems to be stuck. I've tried moving it back and forth, but it only seems to move between blocking the lower right corner and halfway. Does anybody know how to fix this? I couldn't find any guides online. Is it something that I could fix myself, or am I better off getting it repaired somewhere?
Broken or dislodged pawl. It is usually a service job.
Sometimes tapping the eyepiece surround with a small rubber mallet can reset the mechanism, but if not, to the service bench. This glitch has also affected my EOS1N, albeit when it was almost new, and never since (around 1996).
“The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see." ~Edward Weston, 1922.
