Built in Time Exposure mode of EC

Timed Expousre Mode T of Minox EC

I discover that Minox EC has a built in T function, ie, the shutter can remain open indefinely

It is very simple, take out the battery of EC, the camera immediately is in T mode. press the release button, the shutter open indefintely

Close the camera or put back the battery immediately close the shutter This T function of EC is very useful for long expousre photography with EC

No wonder why so many used EC you see in stores have open shutter because there are on T mode, as the battery in camera is dead

Minox C/LX/TLX also works in the same way, however, only for one cycle.

Take out the batter from C/LX/TLX, put in the film press the release, the shutter open indefinetely, and does not consume any current, nor overload the solenoid. Hoever it works only one cycle.

Note: the built in Times exposure T mode of C is between A and 1000, for TLX is between A and 2000. During the T mode of C/LX/TLX, the camera does not drain current nor overload the solenoid, so it is a very useful for long exposure.
