Mirror Latch Help Please


Hi All,

Trying to use my 500 C with my arm in plaster, and in the middle of an ant swarm, I dropped it, it fell on it's back denting the O/S 12 magazine, and the mirror would no longer latch down.

I've pushed the latch slightly to get it to hold the mirror, and all seems to be well, however if I press the shutter release very slowly I can hear the mirror lifting befor the shutter fires.

Is this normal?
Could anyone send me a photo of the latch correctly set with the mirror down please?

If really necessary I'll send it back to Hassy UK for repair, but this is clearly not a warranty repair!

By the way everything is working fine looking at the photos, and I've spent some time checking the focus.

Regards to all!
