The quality available with this camera makes it worth persevering. The negatives are superb.
Yea - I've been doing this. Putting my thumb on the roll as i wind. I haven't had any overlap, just odd spacing. I'll deffinately go for a CLA if it becomes a problem. I've had nothing short of superb quality out of this little camera.
