I had the brilliant idea to use my brand new lovely yellow Zenit 3 to shoot a roll for May 1, which is apparently Commie Camera day, in honor of all those great old Soviet cameras (and the workers who made them). I took a look inside, tried the mechanisms, looked up what I could found about operation, and jiggered the focusing mirror mechanism until it worked just right. Then I loaded in some color film and off I went. Unfortunately although this camera is a Leica copy of sorts, it does not have the openable back plate so you can’t adjust the film or see that it’s properly seated. You guessed it – although the counter advanced,. the film did not. So…herewith my pretty little camera and its developed roll of nothing. I’m still trying to figure out how to get the film to advance properly (ie., get it set into the sprockets ) if anyone has any helpful info.
