Ah, yes, I see. It's obvious when you put it like that, lol.

You can print a suitable mount, the lens will have to be selected empirically

A lens (in this case a dioptre correction lens) can be printed?

I have not seen original devices, except that you can try to print something similar on a 3D printer

Thanks for the reply, Sergey.
Does anyone have any idea if zenit C's can take dioptre/eyepiece correction lenses?

To be honest, I do not like zeniths as a camera for shooting, so it's hard for me to talk about the strength of the shutter.

Sean, this is Youth Festival of 1957 camera. There were Zorki-C, Zorki-2C, Zorki-4 and Zenit-C with such engraving. Zenit-C and the Zorki-4 are the hardest to find, especially with this full kit.

What Festival is the camera celebrating, Kurshpetow?
Out of curiosity (as I couldn't afford to buy one now, nor do I have the space), are Zenit C shutters reliable? I don't mean for heavy use or anything, but if say 3 films were put through in a year would the shutter work for all 3 films?
Some years ago I bought one from a seller on ebay. I can't remember how much I paid, but I think it didn't seem expensive at the time. Unfortunately something went wrong with the shutter as I was running through the speeds to check them, (I don't know if it's necessary with these old Zenits but I was obeying the Zorki rule of winding on before changing the speed) so I sent it back for repair. The seller did so but He'd made the mistake of cleaning the edge of the focusing screen and it made a big difference, so I asked if He could do the same to the rest of the screen and He did, it was at least 2 stops brighter if not more. I probably annoyed Him a bit by asking Him to do it though. But the shutter went wrong again so I sent it back and either got a refund or asked Him to send me a Fed 2 instead. That worked well enough, although rangefinder patch was very pale. Then after a while I noticed that the patch seemed to be slightly to the right of viewfinder frame so I sent an ebay message asking Him about it but I didn't receive a reply. I'd probably annoyed Him too much.
