Zenith and other Russian cameras

Created: 09/01/10
I have a few Russian cameras in my collection because they are rugged, simple, and some made of solid brass. A few early examples had unreliable shutters, and lens quality varied greatly. But if you are lucky and find a good example with a good lens then they are trusty friends and produce excellent results. I also have its cousin,(a Zorki 4) for 40 years that when new cost me £17 and a spare lens was £5 in 1970. Its lens always produced great shots every time. I use other favourite cameras, including a 1967 Nikon F Photomic, and a Rolleiflex 3.5 with a Planar lens. The results are sometimes very comparable but the mechanics of my Russian cameras are crude in comparison, But give them a try you may be very pleasantly surprised for very little cost. Like many others, I have gone digital with a Nikon D50 and an Exilim pocket camera, but I miss the pleasure of seeing results appear by magic in the dark room.

People believe that these cameras are nothing but junk, but if you put some effort into it, they can take some of the most amazing photos to the same quality or better than modern DSLRs.
