    Dry fire AFDII

    Does anyone know a way to dry fire a Mamiya AFDII without a digital or film back attached? I could not find anything using search or the AFDII manual. I purchased an AFDII body and wanted to test it. I did not get a film back and my P45 is currently for a Hassy H (going thru a mount swap when Phase can find me a Mamiya mount).

    I just wanted to test shutter function and my lenses until the back swap can be done.

    As far as I know there is not. Please, anyone that knows better correct me.

    Then again a banged up film back for the Mamiya is only $40+shipping from KEH and I think you could find it cheaper than that. There is a custom function that will let you fire if a film back is attached but has no film.
