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
The Zenit-4 ,Zenit-5 and Zenit-6 are all variations of a totally new design, having little or nothing in common with previous designs. The Zenit-4 is a leaf shutter Single Lens Reflex with a built in light meter and interchangeable prism. The Zenit-4 can be operated manually or in a semiautomatic manner. The Speeds and f stops are mechanically interlocked so that changing one automatically changes the other. The camera is covered with black nylon fabric. All controls on the front of the camera are on the lens mount. Lens mount is the same as the Voigtlander Bessamatic and all lenses are interchangeable. Engraved on the upper right of the camera is "ZENIT-4" in Cyrillic script or English block letters. Centered over the lens is the selenium photocell (source:
