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.

Original price (in year 1986) 90 roubles.
Elikon 35C (I) #6624936. (Juhani's #5217979)

At least two Elikon-35C types with several modifications. (

Fourth picture shows a domestic version with cyrillic texts, and there is a lot of it added! Serial is on a flash guide plate on the outside of rear cover (#5105992)

Fifth & sixth picture show export version (serial 8911543 now inside back cover), and flash switch has now a red flash symbol. Oddest feature is the ELIKON 35C nameplate: it does not exist, but a piece of leatherette instead. The leatherette is same type as on camera, also the finish is same style, so it is very likely it is original!

Seventh picture shows latin text export version (serial 4461408)
