Hi, I've been looking for a zorki 3 for some time, but I though that the zorki 3 and 3M had all the slow shutter speeds. The 3 with the separate dial on the front, and the 3M with all speedes combined on the top plate. Any help please.

I have today recived my 3M, so here's fresh information. The 3M does indeed have all speeds 1 - 1/1000s in one top dial, when 3 has two dials which is usually a less reliable solution. And when I asked here which is more rare I did get the answer that it is 3M.

well they're both quite rare.. and yes it's the same speeds on both, just different mechanics.

Pitxu, are you looking for a camera for collection or for usage? Because if you want a Zorki for usage, you can as well go with Zorki 4, it has the same number of speeds (although they're a bit different, like 1,4,8.. instead of 1,5,10..) but it has a full range from 1 to 1/1000 and it's cost you 4 to 5 times less money.

Vlad.

I'm not so sure, that Zorki-3M is more rarer than Zorki-3. I agree, that both cameras are quite uncommon, but I have met dozens of Zorki-3M in my life and only few Z-3 ones.

Thanks all for the info.
Vlad, I've already got a Zorki4 in black and it's great. I just like the look of the top plate on the 3, and even better the 3M. I think these 3's were the first Zorkis to have the RF and VF combined in one window, but still keeping the rest of the top plate very low.

Yes, these are beautiful cameras, I like both of mine very much . If you're a collection it's a must have.
