I've been having problems with my pentax k1000 metering system. I went to take pictures today and noticed that the meter needle does not corespond correctly with the shutter speed. When adjusted from B to 1/1000 the exposure needle actually moves toward the + side, not the - side. Theoretcily, the needle should plumet to the bottom of the scale not rise up. I checked the film speed / shutter speed knob and it is assembled correctly. Any ideas? I'm wondering if the meter was messed up to begin with. When I first got the camera my exposures were all over the place until I started using the sunny 16 rule.
