What a wonderful homepage! A great camera history. I was looking for my first SLR, which a bought after making a job during the summer holidays in 1969. It was a Revueflex from Zenit. I loved it. The german Enna factory from Munich offered some lenses, like the 1:4,5/240mm for this very special M39 screw mount. All was stolen in 1976...

What a fantastic reference. It has allowed me to date my FED's. I was surprised to find that one dated to the time period of 1939-1941. Great work.

Hi. I used the Cambron TTL in the Navy. My daughter used one also when she was in the Navy. She still has hers. I think it was $99 with two lenses and a case back in the day, from Cambridge I think. Enjoyed your site, thanks. David.

I still own a (working) Prinzflex 500 from 1971. As mentioned, this is a badged version of the Zenit B with 58mm Helios standard lens. It was sold in the UK by Dixons Photographic. I havent used it for a number of years but still check the shutter from time to time. This is a marvellous website, I have never heard of the late 20th century Zenit SLR cameras until now! Fascinating. I am also familiar with the rangefinder FED 3L & Zorki 4 cameras Good luck.

I have version of Komsomolets camera which is not presented here (just another name marking). Does Author expected information from the guests?

Anyone with an interest in Russian cameras/lenses should make this site a must for information. It has helped me to accurately identify the cameras and lenses in my modest collection and I discovered that my (mint) Orion-15 in Contax/Kiev mount is somewhat of a rarity.

Good job! Many thanks for very accurate and complete information. I guess there is reason why google has sovietcams on top of the list. Thanks to everybody who works for the project.

This is definitly the best reference site about russian cameras. I don't know how many times I wached all the Fed, Zorki and Zenit. I bought by chance a FED (G), which has the dark brown body coverings. The serial number is #596440. So it seems to be really a serial property. I bought it as a PE0320 but it is a PE0325. Best regards Michael

Congratulations first for this admirable work of reference. Owning a MIR camera of 1960 I would remark that after the speed of 1/500 there is a last dot on the disk (without engraved number of 1/1000), and the speed selector indeed can nest there down. See the image of the manual: http://www.zenitcamera.com/mans/mir/mir. html. (I could not measure yet the speed so far).
