Hi Yuri...
that's exactly same as mine ...! but in black.
it aws told me by seller , a KGB ukanian agency made ...no more informations.

So for me it is a "special handmade camera built by a sewing machines repair man !!!! )

Thanks Vlad
I would do the same Yuri's suggestion Placing all photos together in Wiki.
PS: Why not open a wiki addenda gathering all photos from forum?

Yes, this is the same as Alain's. So this appears to be some kind of standard design, probably made in relatively large quantities.

I missed the Alain's post, would surely jump on it then. But in general it is a good idea to post the item the Wiki, and then start a thread from there.

Vlad, the Zorki-6 has a ratcheted winding lever, you can wind it with several small strokes. This is what this mechanism does - depending on how "deep" you squeeze the lever, it may take some 3-5 squeezes.

I still doubt this is a KGB issue, must be some other agency, police most likely. KGB would stick its favorite F-21 in it.

Bill, the purse came from Moscow, and its KGB origin was confirmed (to some extent).

Very nice Yuri, I have not seen this one before. I agree that it may not have been made at the KGB workshop, but it was made somewhere that was pretty professional... maybe a police workshop of some type or maybe even a Ukrainian division of KGB since there are similarities to the KMZ - KGB work (stamped with a number .. mechanism painted black, etc.) Thanks for showing us this and the lady's handbag too. Was the lady's handbag from Odessa police too?

Regards, Bill

Amazing! A question though - how does it fully wind the shutter on such small range of motion with a single press of a pedal? Is the winding mechanism modified?
