Some kind of submarine camera based on words "Осушитель" which means "dryer", implying nautical use.


You think that there is no humidity in air, only in water? ;)

hehehe, you got me there Zoom! .. I guess Осушитель made me first think of water applications.. I stand corrected and will change the description of the entry. And thank you Mike for identifying the camera - I love it! - the Wiki project at its best!

I recently purchased a FARM-3 camera, a very interesting piece, looks a lot like FARM-2, almost identical. There is another piece on eBay that has a viewfinder that goes into the film cartridge slot. I guess I'm a bit confused why you would need a viewfinder if there is already a viewfinder for both eyes on it...

here's the piece on eBay I'm talking about:
