I was using the lens shutter and the focal plane shutter chose to close. No warning and no signs. Any suggestions or do I need to check the shutters, lens and focal plane every time I take the camera out of the camera bag or backpack?

Check the speed window and make sure it is at O.
Anniversary Speed has a release lock that makes it difficult to operate the trip lever, Pacemaker Speed put the Front/Back/Trip switch to Front.

Belated thanks. I read it the day it was posted and I reread it today. I believe the the switch was on Front when the rear shutter chose to close.

Time to take the release plate apart and see what is going on in there. Suspect an out of position part or heavy wear.
