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
In 1962 Smena producer GOMZ became LOOMP
(Leningradskoje objedinenije optiko-mehanicheskich predprijatij).
Need to mention, that LOOMP name as rule wasn‘t used for camera markings and such cameras with LOOMP markings are quite rare. Only in 1965 Smena producer received permanent and very well-known name „LOMO“
(Leningradskoje optiko-mechanicheskoje objedinenije).

Smena-5 camera designed to use thermoplastic instead of bakelite.
Lens T-42 with GOMZ logo, serial number under shutter housing.
Strap lugs on body (few without lugs).
Sunshade reverses on lens to provide protection (few without screw to use the hood as protection).

Very seldom to meet camera.
In 1961 the price for a Smena-5 was 9 rubel.
