    When they work, they work like a dream. Kind of like owning an MGB

    Except with a Horizon 202, you probably won't have the satisfaction of knowing that you are responsible for funding the mechanic's children's university educations .

    I think I've seen an earlier thread discussing similar issues. I remember someone mentioned about some slight light leak which aggrevates if the camera is kept idle for longer times. Photos taken in quick succession are not generally affected. So keeping the camera in dark enclosure when not in use was recommended. I think slower ISO films or some DIY lens/slit cover might help

    I don't think that this is it, all the pictures on the roll were shot within an hour, and I use that camera at least once a week. I have a fresh roll of 3200 speed in there now, if that turns out fine I guess Ill call it ok, i have my fingers crossed....

    I use my 202 over one years. I only wind the shutter before shot. So far no problem. Only if I wind the shutter after one shot and forgot how long I take the next shot will show the lines. I used the camera from -10 C to + 30 C no problem.
