|Congratulations to the homepage, it's
wonderful! I own a 12XP, of course I
don't use it any more, since I took on
digital photography, but I still love
Zenit, and I think that these cameras
are indeed very fine. I read somewhere
on the Web that KMZ has stopped the
development of all 35 mm SLRs but two of
them, and in the future they plan to
build digital cameras. Let me put it
this way: if the new digital cameras
will be as good as the old film-based
ones, we will see a renaissance of the
Zenit brand! I'm planning anyway to get
such a camera as soon as it will appear
on the market.|

|Not many people know this but I am the
person that gave the Zenit XP it's XP
name. As a business man dealing with
Intertorg, an organisation of the
minsitry of foreign trade in Moscow, I
was discussing photo business with Mr.
Kuznetsov, one of the department heads.
At the end of the meeting he casually
mentioned that they would bring out a
new Zenit camera and if I had any
suggestions about naming this camera.
When back in Belgium I made several
suggestions (by telex no fax or e-mail
yet) and one of them was XP for extra
precision. I did get a thank you telex a
few weeks later informing me that XP was
selected. I do own an xp camera myself
and still use it occasionally. Regards,

Great site. Great information. You have
been 15 years sick and I am just one or
I have Lubitel 2, Zorki 4-K, and two
Smena 8M. I am much eager to find 120
roll for Lubitel, it also need shutter
service and speeds are not working.
Zorki-4K's shutter speed setting ring
is free plus it also needs service.
I got Smena 8Ms bracd new, they seem
nice fun cameras.
So I am looking forward to able to use
In addition I have:
- Adox Polomatic (de-assembled)
- Seagull 4A-10 (TLR)
- Halina-Viceroy (TLR)
- Olympus PEN-D
- Olympus OM-2N
- Nikon F70
Good luck in your collecting and site.
Take care and regards,
