I am not going to talk about my unfortunes with focusing issues the whole year with no less than 3 times sending my stuff to Solms. However, it was in fact three times lucky and I have been a very very happy camper for almost 4 weeks with focusing absolutely spot-on with all lenses.
Last Monday I was on an assignment in Zurich. I was to shoot a spectacular private garden and after half an hour, the camera locked up. Turning it off and on did not help, it was stonedead. Removing the battery resolved it and I could shoot 1 exposure before locking up again. I went through the whole shoot with 1 exposure and removing the battery to be able to shoot another single exposure.
I really hoped that it would be the SD card and the first thing I did coming back to Sweden was to buy a new card. I formatted the card incamera and everything worked normal again. YES, it was a simple card failure. Happy days!!!!
This Thursday I went to Spain for a combined holiday and 3 paid assignments in the next two weeks to come. Today me, my wife and kids were up walking in a lovely national park and obviously the M9 was on my shoulder.
Guess what? Sure, it went dead again. So in fact it was not the card. I can shoot most of the times 1 or 2 exposures before having to remove the battery. But sometimes it locks up and I remove the battery and it still will not work, remove the battery one more time and I can make a single exposure.
Lot's and lot's and lot's of fourletter words has been going through my mind this afternoon. I have a real estate shoot (7 million dollar villa) on Friday and the week after I have a small fashion shoot with two models and an art director.........on top I have four people that has booked a full day workshop up in the mountains....
As a last resort I can always rent, but it is sooooo frustrating.
Does anybody know what has happened? Can I do something myself?
