Zorki 4 - 'the Golden Rule'

"Cock the shutter, set the shutter"

I imagined this would be a fairly easy thing to overlook, however, I was surprised by how easy it was to not get this in the wrong order. I guess maybe I'm used to using the Minolta, where I never set the shutter speed anyways (as it's constanly in Aperture Priority mode - yeah, lazy, I know), so it's not something I often think about. And with the Vilia, I stick strictly to Sunny-16 as well, so shutter speed is hardly ever in my thoughts.

I like to take snaps, I do pay attention to aperture, focus, and metering, but shutter speeds have always been a distant second.

It's like I was training myself for the Zorki.

Yeah, right. Convenient, though.

Shutter speeds are essential when it comes to toddlers.
