Hey everyone, I bought a Minolta Autopak 8 K11 super 8 camera a few months ago in Mexico City. When I first shot a roll of color, everything was fine. But after a while the camera would randomly not shoot, the mechanical zoom wouldn't work, and the battery checker on the back couldn't recognize the batteries. But then the next time I picked it up, it would work fine! I assume the connection from the batteries in the handle to the body of the camera is faulty somehow, but I wanted to ask here if anyone has had an issue like this with a Minolta. I hope there is just dust between the connecting points but I'm also not sure what the best solution is for cleaning connections like that. Anyone have any advice? Thanks a bunch. Allegra
