No, 4AM is not the preferred time to use this camera, rather the model of this great Arsenal Kiev rangefinder, a camera that is a joy to use any time of day. Paired with the Jupiter-8M lens, some remarkable pictures can be captured.
Despite initial issues with wayward fingers blocking the rangefinder window, the 4AM proved easy to use. The fine-tune focus wheel is a welcome feature and made it easy to quickly compose shots.
