For what it is worth, my Pentax KM meter doesn't move in low light (i.e., just around the house at night with the normal house lights on) but works quite happily once the light levels go up a bit (e.g., during the day or pointing the camera straight at a light.
Well I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one then. I'll get some film shots first and develop them and see what happens.

I had a full roll finished in the k1000 and I was all ready to take it to the store. So I started winding up the film and I heard a breaking noise inside the camera....

....I forgot to press that little button on the bottom of the camera to release the film . The film tore out of it's package.

Guess I need to make a check list of all the things that I need to do on a film camera that I never had to think about with a digital.
