I finally figured out how to load my Zorki. This was an annoying process to say the least. And it wouldn't be possible if it wasn't for my friend Flo. He had an old roll of film that he wasn't going to shoot anymore and was willing to give it to me. Thanks again, man. Yesterday afternoon I got in touch with the gentleman that sold me the camera and he gave me a couple of useful links and tips. First, there was this Zorki 6 manual that I hadn't previously found. He also told me that I needed to cut the film, just like in the old Leicas. He gave me this link (in German) to read for a nice example with pictures. Additionally, he told me that I had to load it into a slit and the Zorki manual also mentions a slit. Now on my Konica there are multiple slits and they're part of the take-up spool. On the Zorki things are a bit different and you load film into it just like an old Leica (see the second link). Thankfully I'm bilingual, otherwise I might never have figured it out with just the pictures in the second article.
Here's how to load film into a Zorki 6: If you look at the title picture (click for a larger version) in this post and compare it with the German-language instruction manual from the second link, you'll see in both there is a black band that wraps partially around the take-up spool. What you need to do is, after you cut the film (you'll want the thin section of the film's tail to be extended to about 10cm in length), is slide the tail as far underneath this black band as you can. The result should then look something like this (click to enlarge):
The roll of film in there is the test roll that Flo gave me. I had to cut the original tail off that I had initially cut because the holes were rather messed up after I was experimenting with it last night. This tail is a new one that I cut. This roll unfortunately will never be shot, but it's life wasn't a waste.
Now that I know how to load this camera, it's time to get some fresh film and shoot away!
(I'll do a video of the process at a later date so that way you can watch me do it - if you need help before then, just drop me a line)
