Can someone explain quickly to me what's the difference between these:

Horizon...
S3 Pro
S3 Sport
S3 U-500
Perfekt

? I can never tell what sets them apart besides the name? different speeds? Different lenses? Any good link where all these are compared?

thanks,
Vlad

Hi Vlad,

The S3 Pro has two rotation speeds:
1/30, 1/60, 1/125 and 1/250 on fast rotate, and
1 sec, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 on slow rotate.
The S3 Sport has a single fast rotation speed:
1/60, 1/125, 1/250 and 1/500.
The S3-500 has two rotation speeds:
1/60, 1/125, 1/250 and 1/500 on fast rotate, and
1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 on slow rotate.
The Perfect is the same as the S3 Pro, but the lens is marked as an MC Industar f/2.8 28mm, whereas the S3 cameras have an MC MG f/2.8 28mm lens.
The Kompakt has the same lens as the Perfect and has two rotation speeds: 1/60 on fast rotate and 1/2 on slow rotate.
I do not know whether the Industar and MG lenses are the same.
I hope this helps.

David.

Hi David,

thanks for that explanation! I was confused in subtle differences mainly between the S3 models, this makes perfect sense!

Best regards,
Vlad
