In the previous post(Zenit E), you may have noticed the bright spots in the two photos. This effect is caused by damage to the shutter canvas. This means that the canvas transmits light to the negative. Even in home conditions, the repair is very quick and anyone can do it. An ordinary black shoe cream is enough for this. I gently coated the damaged canvas with this cream on both sides, then waited for everything to soak into the canvas. Then I tried the shutter several times at all speeds, cleaned the inside of the camera and blew it out with compressed air.Then all you had to do was insert the film and start shooting. These old cameras that do not need any battery to operate are simply magical.
