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

FKM-1 - Foto Kamera Motornaya - 1 (Photo Camera with Motor 1)

A special purpose camera made for medical and scientific photography.

The camera has no viewfinder, shutter or tripod bush. There is a flap that operates mechanically to exclude light to the film plane. A 12 volt power source advances the film by one whole frame and then a partial frame alternately. There is a film speed reminder disk on the base of the camera, but no metering device.

Collection of Vladislav Kern
