    Moskva 5 flash contact function

    I accidentally discovered some strange behavior with my Moskva 5 yesterday.

    I put a cold shoe adapter on a bracket to use a Sunpak flash.

    At 1/50 second, the flash would only work maybe 1 out of 6 tries.

    I went to 1/25, not at all.

    I went to 1/100 and it worked several times in a row.

    Is this normal (aside from being normal to have many problems)?

    Thanks
    Murray

    Sounds like a bad contact in the lens, as such only a faster shutter speed would trip the flash sync hard enough to make contact. I'm in Grand Rapids area, you could always have me take a look at it (either on a personal basis, or can bring it into the store where I work cameracenter.net in the same area).

    But ya I'm thinking thats what it is, because normally it should fire all the time at any speed.
