exception to the general rules
[quote=Towermax;1702082]And keep in mind that common rules do vary from camera to camera.
For example, on my Ansco Karomat (Agfa Karat 36), the owner's manual states, "When using the 1/500 of a second speed, the shutter must be set before the the film is wound and the shutter cocked, or damage to the shutter will result."
So, as was earlier said, "Read the manual."[/quote
Thanks for this, and all the replies so far. I imagine I should start to make a searchable reference file from all the info so that one can type in the specific camera make to see the cautions and the exceptions.
