Id like to use this opportunity and greet everyone since this is my first post here. My name is Alex and I am a photo amateur from Croatia. One of the cameras I have recently started using is my grandpas KIEV 4 (the one with the meter; funny as it may be the meter is still working!)
Now, im mostly into low light kind of expressive photography (think Michael Ackerman or James Fee) so motionm blur, grain , excessive contrast is mostly not an issue. However, from time to time Id like to be able to make a decent "normal" photography with it and here comes the problem - shutter speed selection.
I use 50mm f2 and 35mm f2.8 lenses, and also have universal tourette finder. I normally wind the neyt frame and pull the rewind knob up. Now, when I need to "lower" it back into place to the correct speed, it kind of goes a bit above or below the number. So Im never sure what speed is selected. I tried winding it all the way to B, then lowering into each place by each number but also not really acurate and it seems as if one or two clicks are missing (more numbers than places to "lower" the knob). Any ideas what can be done about it?
Everything else seems to function properly, lens mount, shutter, I get decent pictures in daytime but night indoors is not good.
Sorry for the long post, and cheers all!
