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 Zorki-4K was produced from 1972 to 1978 with a production of 524.610 cameras (Princelle also mentioned 36 produced in 1980). The 4K is fully identical to the Zorki-4, but with a rapid advance lever. In almost all cases this camera came with the Jupiter-8 lens (which is a Zeiss Sonnar clone) of very good quality. The 4K seems to be more an "export" camera. Cyrillic Versions are known. The 4K was produced after the Mir [2].
