Zorki 6 shredded film
I've had three rolls of film thru my Zorki 6 and had some problems. The first roll I had to start over again, but it was one I had rolled myself, so It might have been my leader that caused it.
The last roll got shredded when I tried to re-wind it. I was sure it was all the way rewound- it was not going to move. The second roll also got stiff rewinding, and I opened the back a bit early. Once I closed it rewound fine. The tear is about a third of the way thru a 36 frame roll. I guess I could have done it when I was advancing the film, tore it by wracking it to fast or something, but I don't remember it.
Is this a common problem, or does it have something to do with me. The film advance is pretty smooth, not my Canon F1, but not bad.
Including three shots, the film in camera, the film itself and the camera insides.

Every real Black&White picture has silver lining.
It's not the size of the camera, it's the emotion in the emulsion.
Reality is just a shadow of four-dimensional space-time.
