    Hi all. I have a Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super BC in phenomenal condition except for one thing. When set to shutter priority and viewing through the viewfinder, the shutter speeds click into place as they should but the shutter speeds reflected in the view finder click into place in between the numbers rather then on them. Does anyone know how to adjust this? I understand that this isn't the easiest of cameras to adjust so if its not fairly straight forward I'll just leave it alone but it would be nice to get it 100%. Thank you!

    Better off just living with it. In that camera it's most likely a gear train that makes the coupling so either it's a tooth off or the indicator has moved on the shaft or track.

    Ok, I figured as much. The camera works fine beside that so I'll just use it as it is. Thanks John.
