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 only real difference between the Zorki-3 and Zorki-3M is all the shutter speeds have been moved to the top dial. The shutter release button on the Zorki-3M also protrudes higher above its collar than it does on the Zorki-3. Most Zorki-3M have a matt finish but there are some examples where the metal parts are highly polished.

No Zorki 3M left the production line with sync for flash. Some were returned and modified after purchase. There is already a Zorki-3C #5501790 known which had a regular flash sync.
