problem? White rainbow

Postby americanprospecting » Sat 08 February 2014 / 05:35 am

So this is the second iconic white rainbow sx-70 i have happened into. the first one i never had a chance to test, now that i have some test packs, i decided to fire it up. It make all the usual sounds when i insert the test pack. However when i click to take a pic, the shutter will stay open for about 2 seconds. Not sure if that was normal for the older ones or not. I have about a dozen other cameras that the shutter will open and close in a blink of an eye. HELP!

looks like i solved my own problem. I didn't realize that the light sensor changes the shutter time. i have been testing it indoors at night. when held very close to the light, it is almost instant.
