    It however also is true that especially the 1600 F was a delicate machine, and that problems occured also with the shutterspeed setting mechanism.
    But those problems were not 'partial' to certain modes of operation. They would occur anyway, no matter whether you heeded advice not to set shutterspeeds before winding, or not to set speeds counterclockwise, or not.

    The Hasselblad 1000 F is less delicate and really does not mind what you do, unless what you do involves a crowbar or sledgehammer.

    For Kievs however, the particular advice not to set speeds before cocking the shutter is given so often that it must be true that you should not, or else...
    Folks are generally surprised that my 1600f works at all, and it is not abused but has seen some mileage

    People tend to forget that these cameras - though certainly not without problems - were what established the Hasselblad reputation.
    They are Hasselblads: why on earth would they not work after 60 years???

    Good luck with your wonderful 1000F!

    Thanks, I'm taking your advice. I have a darkslide on the way. Now maybe I can get a better look inside this thing.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    The dark slide arrived today, finally removed the magazine. Now I know why someone posted a warning about being careful with the magazine off, the shutter curtain is right there.:o

    Just buy one from Calumet or B&H. Less than $20, I believe.

    You can get a rear cover to protect the shutter if you want to leave the magazine off for some reason. Also, it's probably worthwhile to take note of David Odess's warnings about mounting the back. That is, don't snap the back on, but open the latch, seat the back then release the latch. Doing that way avoids stressing the feet that support the bottom of the magazine. See http://www.david-odess.com/faq.html#q16

    Thanks for the heads-up, though that's the way I've done it. By the way, Dave is the one I purchased the dark slide from. Very fast ship even with a personal check, he didn't wait for the check to clear or anything. In case anyone is interested, check his site for a good cause raffle he is running wherein you can choose to buy a ticket(s) for either a camera body or lens.
