I am trying for the very first time my Aptus II 5 (brandnew) and my (new to me but second hand) Alpa SWA + SK 35XL + SK 72L.
It is not going well.
It looked simple enough and the 4 first exposures actually came out "normal", but the next 25 or so has come out like this....
Yes, I have written an email to my dealer for advice, but I thought that maybe someone here has seen this before and know what to do!
What I have done is the following. I have formatted the CF on my imac to FAT32, then done a quick format in-DB. I have done this with 3 different CF's.
I have tried both the 35mm and the 72mm with the same result, which means to me that there is nothing wrong with shutters.
I have used "factory settings" on the back and the only thing I have changed is to go in and tick "large format", nothing else.
My hope! is that it is as simple as a faulty sync cable!!!! Could this happen with a sync cable not working correctly? I only have the one, so I cannot check that.
Or does anyone have another suggestion of what to try?
