|Da inamorato di vecchie fotocamere
sovietiche, non posso che congratularmi
con lo splendido lavoro che avete
Un fantastico punto di riferimento.
Grazie ancora. Luigi|
|You have made a fantastic work of
reference. When I was young I used to
sell the Zenit camera for a living my
experience was they were good workhorses
and great value for money. It is a shame
that Technical and Optical no longer
exist, but thanks for an absorbing and
excellent history of the camera.|

|Congratulations for your page
interesting and enjoyable!
I just enrich my modest collection with
It has been looking for information when
I have given their well-documented web!
Again, thank you very much!|
|This is a great reference you've built.
Thank you for sharing this info with the
world. Just picked up a Horizont.
Appears to be made in 1970, but not
exactly like the one's you've got on
the page. Funny how there are so many

|Excellent research and work, and a
fantastic resource. As a historian
documenting the history of Russian
diving equipment, I know how hard it is
to make sense of many discrete data
points and then to try to attempt to
paint a broad picture by filling in the
blanks. On a technical note, in my
collection I have a camera not
documented here: It is a START SLR from
KMZ, but with the same 39mm thread
short-mount lenses as was used for the
early Zenit cameras. An undocumented
find? I will forward photos of it when I
am reunited with it (it's in storage
now). I appreciate your many hours of
researching, and look forward to your
new work in the areas that now interest
you. Cпасибо очень from the
|Wonderful website and a fantastic
reference aid. I can spend hours
|Лучший сайт. Ко всему
еще и удобно. Спасибо
|Thanks for your very useful website
it's a great reference.|
|My very first 35 mm camera was a Zorki 4
with Jupiter 8.
Thank you for this website !
|Correction: My ZK has number 000029. Is
this somehow special?
|I have a ZK with serial number 0000129,
dates 1948. |
|Thanks, I have a Lubitel 2 and a Zenit
12, you have a great site here, full of
information and nostalgic.|
|Discovering this website today, I was
fascinated to see the FED 4L, which I
own, though not currently in active use.
I had no idea it was named after the
founder of the KGB. I would like to see
a section in Russian/Soviet telescopes
and binoculars, both of which I have
owned, and found to be excellent value
and quality. Visiting the Ukraine in
September 1989 I was surprised to see
that none of the Soviet cameras,
binoculars, telescopes, monoculars etc
that were freely available in Britain
were not in sale in the large city of
Rovno, now Rivne.|
|Thank you very much for this beautiful
website. Excellent spot for a soviet
photo gear collector. Would be nice if
you could also cover camera accessories
like flashes, lightmeters, rangefinders.
But anyway, good job really, keep it up.
Will definitely contact you if I find
something rare here in Baku.|
