There is a trick to setting the shutter speeds.  After you have taken a 
picture and capped the lens, you advance the film about half way, until the 
red dot on the shutter speed dial is next to the index mark.  Only then can 
you change the shutter speed or slit-width.  After you have set the desired 
spped, you finish winding the film (and uncap the lens) before taking your 
next picture.  You can only adjust the shutter speed at this point in the 
middle of the film advance action.  Not before advancing, and not after
