I have a Leica IIIc and I am very new to this type of camera. Is it possible to damage the mechanism by winding the knobs in an improper fashion? It could be just because the camera is very old, but the winding knob won't stop winding around and around when there is no film in the camera. Sometimes after adjusting the shutter speed or reversing the winding it will "catch" and then wind the shutter speed knob around like its supposed to. After that, when I press the shutter button it will click, or sometimes seem to "halfway-click". Am I doing something wrong?
