Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth!
This morning I was messing with the shutter release pushing it in and out, when I felt something pop. The release button sprang back to normal position and stayed there through cycle after cycle. Then I replaced the battery and ran exposure checks and everything was normal again, a miraculous healing???? But then I screwed in the soft release and the camera jammed again!!!! After much playing with the shutter release collar and it began working fine again, as long as I did not use the soft release!. I guess I can live with that!
