About this site This site is dedicated to all the individuals in the world who collect Soviet and Post-Soviet Photographic equipment. It is intended to be used as a central knowledge repository
for everything that is related to photography in Soviet Union or in the post-communist Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
It is a creation of several Soviet / Russian camera collectors, working together to create a central comprehensive resource, covering many areas of this field all in one place. Anyone who registers on this web site can revise and add to the online wiki catalog of the photo equipment, add and review sellers of Soviet/Russian photographic equipment and participate in forum discussions.
The web site and the information on it is maintained by the member - collectors themselves. Think of it an sort of a Wikipedia, but strictly for Russian / Soviet photographic equipment and related material. The site also includes a general Soviet / Russian camera forum for member discussion of many topics, and a Collector's Resource area where there are links to collections, historical information, buying and selling resources, and camera seller reviews. This web project is completely free of charge and is open to anyone who wants to participate.
This website consists of 3 sections:
A Wiki-style Catalog of Soviet/Russian Cameras Ц this section can be edited or added to by any user who registers on the website. This Wiki Catalog will feature information on each Russian / Soviet camera model and manufacturer, as well as the rare and unique examples that are not often seen.

A User-Maintained database of Camera Collections, Soviet / Russian equipment dealers, eBay Sellers and Online Stores (with reviews and opinions of the dealers).
