I might have to swallow my pride...after several rolls of perfectly exposed (at least by the camera ) film... the blank rolls started again... Got me thinking:

Does temperature affect this camera adversly? I know the manual goes on about how it works in cold and warm, etc... but it is old now, and the recent cold snap is the only thing that was a variable...

Is there anything I can do maintenance wise myself ( I am fairly skilled with small mashinery, being a model builder - but not experienced with cameras)?
I've seen lube kits on the web - I know they heal the shutter squeek - but my camera is very much devoid of that ailment...
