This camera conspires against you at every turn, but in the best possible way. The shutter assembly is made up of six pieces— three moving parts and three springs. My second one I flocked the inside prior to assembly which made a bit difference.

Getting the shutter right, and getting the frame advance indicator equivalent to frame counter to function properly. There are two solutions.
