[Rollei] I hate it!

Hi Rolleiphiles,

a few days ago I got my overhauled SL66 from Paepke. Today, I was making
Repros with the 120 S-Planar and exposure times in the 4-10s rage, when
something bit me and I decided to test the 2.8/80 Planar wide open. I had
to adjust the exposure time to 1s and made the exposure... forgetting to
release the automatic lock at the wire release (is this thing called "wire
release" in english? My dictionary says so...). So the trigger was pushed
when I turned the crank. The camera behaved unusual (understandable), and
I tried to transport again before realizing my error. By now, the camera
is completely locked... the mirror is up, the shutter closed, the crank is
blocked and nothing moves anymore.

A call to Paepke for help resulted in a parcel sent to Düsseldorf.... I
hate it!!!!
