|Hello! Firstly congratulation for your
site! It's a realy big database about
the Soviet cameras!
I'm collecting the old cams (I have
only 25 camera in my collection). I
wanna repair my Cmena 8 (3rd version -
PK2680). In the shutterhouse 3 parts
moving independently to the others and I
can't found any draws in the internet.
I need a correct service manual or
exploded drawings. Can You help me?|
It's hard to stop reading your very
interesting pages about Russian cameras
Recently I read about Jupiter-3. I have
a series of ZK 1.5 / 5 cm lens from 1948
and 1949 (Zorki), all Zeiss. And I want
to tell you that it is also interesting
and exciting to shoot with these lenses
with a Leica or Contax / Kiev even
today. And as I said, thanks for a very
interesting and exciting reading!
Best regards from Sweden|
|Thanks for very interesting reading!
I am interested in Kiev Cameras and
Just read about Jupiter-9 in LTM mount
when I have some early ones.
Some with 1.8 meter minimum focus
One of the lenses I have is from 1952,
with closed fours, but as I said with
the 1.8 meter minimum focus distance.
Content is a Zeiss lens package, with
serial number 2839783.
According to Fabrication Buck Photo
Optics, Carl Zeiss Jena (Hartmut Thiele)
as part of this Sonnar in a group of
1000 finished 1945.
But it is interesting enough to find
Zeiss in a Jupiter-9 from 1952 with a
Focusing Distance of 1.8 meters!|
