I have just discovered that exposure time must be faster than 1 second when using the FT1. Is there a good reason for this? A bad reason, even? I thought it might be to save power holding the aperture in place, but it takes force to hold the aperture wide open. Relaxing pressure is how the aperture is stopped down for the shot.

What's annoying is I had a lens mounted using a reversing ring and there was no way to stop down the aperture. Neither was there any CPU to drive. If power is the excuse, the camera wasn't saving anything.

(Maybe this is in a manual somewhere. I wasn't thinking of slow exposures when I read the manual.)
