I am new to film photography. I have an old Praktica MTL3. I have properly loaded the film, and took some shots. Then I accidentally clicked the shutter button, before winding the film. Will that ruin my last photography? There wasn't any sound, or anything... I am afraid that I will have two photographs on one exposure, or something like that. Thank you in advance!


Don't worry. As many cameras with curtain shutter Praktica MTL3 is constructed so that the shutter is set in a start position by winding the film. You can see it in this video (between 17 and 20 secs)
