Repairing the RE (part 3)

A small update to the Miranda Sensomat RE repair project: it is now on long(ish) hold.

I don’t know whether this should be counted as bad luck or good: just when I had the RE finally working properly, a spring underneath the mirror housing broke. The good news is that it broke before I started reassembling the body, surely I would have been quite annoyed if it had broken later.

I went with the camera to the Tampere Camera Service, and the owner there promised to find a replacement spring for the broken one. Unfortunately, as it seems to happen in the springtime with almost every field of life in Finland, all of the photographers have awaken from the winter hibernation at the same time and want their cameras serviced. Consequently, the RE has been there for three weeks already…
