I am an Soviet and Russian camera collector residing in State of Illinois, USA. I have only somewhat recently started collecting (since May 2007) these fine examples of Soviet and Russian mechanical engineering and design that until late 80s have been closed off to the rest of the world. Now that these cameras have come to light, I want to share them with all of you. Recently I have decided to start cataloging Soviet and Russian cameras online, thus the project was born, which is a Wiki catalog of Russian and Soviet cameras.

Wiki Catalog Entry
Zenit 10
Modernized version of Zenit-E and a link between E and 11. Manual diaphgram, selenium cell exp meter. Film reminder slot in back. Shutter cloth 1/30 - 1/500s. With Helios-44-2 or Industar-50-2 normal lens. List price 137 rubles.

Passport of the pictured camera shows odd data:
Camera is made in 1981 with serial 14.174, but according to KMZ only 105 were built in 1981!
Lens is made in 1982 so was this specimen counted into 82-production of 19.760 cameras?
And it was sold as late as in 1985!
Also price was reduced 1. Dec 1983 to 102 rubles, discount sale in USSR?
