I did have Nikon’s Photo Secretary software and now wondering if I used that to lock the shutter speed. Why I did it – just can’t think of a reason right now. I’ve used the camera few times in the last 10 years and usually shoot in aperture priority mode, so I never noticed the lock until I tried shooting a test roll of film.
I’m having the camera inspected right now, so as soon as I get it back I’ll try the reset (I guess I’ll find out soon enough if it’s more than just a setting adjustment).
Thanks Larry for your feedback.
