    This message is mostly for Orie, since she's the only other person I know with a Widelux , but if anyone else has one, or gets one in the future here's something I learned recently...

    Don't change the shutter speed before the camera is cocked/wound. If you do this it will eventually damage the camera. You can change it all you want once it's wound and ready to go.

    Here's hoping you didn't come across this discovery because YOURS has been damaged due to this mechanical idiosyncrasy. :(

    Well, mine did break down a while back, and this may have had something to do with it but, knock on wood, so far it's been working fine since the repair.
