Improving Your Sputnik Camera

The Sputnik cameras as built by the factory, kindly put, suffer from poor quality control and a design flaw or two. In this section, we'll discuss some common problems with the camera, and offer some suggested solutions.

This section assumes you have a functioning Sputnik, and would like to improve it's performance.

While no two cameras are alike, in general, the top problems which cause degraded images, in order of severity, are:

  1. Light Leaks - camera body/back
  2. Light Leaks - camera body cracks
  3. Light Leaks - latch area
  4. Shutter adjustment
  5. Internal Reflections
