Congratulations to Vlad for his wonderful and important work!

I'm not sure of the exact day, but just about one year ago Vlad opened this important web site for collectors, aficionados, and users of Russian cameras. He has worked tirelessly to make the site a great place. Great work Vlad !

And congratulations to all who have participated in the site in every way. What a fine group, all included ... and I'm proud to be in it! What a good year for Russian camera people.

So HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to the site and a big THANK YOU to Vlad!

(Maybe special anniversary cameras can be made for us in Russia ... a special refurbished LOMO ;-)

Regards, Bill

wow! Thanks Bill for reminding this!

Vlad! Great job was done by you during a year indeed!!! Not beeing very chatty person in my personal life, I'm among the leaders here with 500+ posts already ... Big thanks to Vlad, I'm feeling very comfortable here with many new-discovered friends and like-minded persons.

So HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to our community with big wishes to keep this GREAT site always actual and attractive! A lot of things depends on Vlad, but not all for sure ... while still a lot of things depend on us, dear Comrades! Did I say clearly?

Best Regards,
Aidas

I also second it, Thanks Vlad for compiling all the valuable information. Your site is the best out there, One of these days I will have to do a self-portrait in my new Kiev t-shirt. Thanks again...Don

I'd also like to say CONGRATULATIONS, Vlad !!

You've placed a lot of hard work into this site as well as many user friendly features, quite unlike most websites I've been on. You have also "collected" some of the finest individuals associated with our interests.

Thank you VERY much and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY !!

Vlad,
Congratulations, and a big heartfelt thank you for all that you have achieved.
I think everyone has already said how appreciative we are of your tireless efforts and I just want to add my agreement to the rest.
We also owe a big thank you to Bill for bringing this anniversary to our attention, and for his very valuable support to this site during the past year.
From my personal point of view I am honoured to be among such a great and knowledeable group of people, whom I consider to be friends.
Vlad, you are doing a great job, and long may it continue!!!
Best wishes, Jim

Vlad,

Congratulations for this first anniversary.
And many thanks for your kindness and patience with those members disturbing you with translations

I hope all of us (and many more) will be there for the 10th anniversary.

Thanks again…

Bill and everyone,

Wow! I come back from my weekend out and find this thread! Thank you all VERY MUCH! . Didn't even realize it's been a year, and what a busy and wonderful year for Soviet camera collectors! I think congratulation should go out to all of you for making the site what it is and be passionate about your hobby! I am very touched by all your kind words, thanks again, I feel very honored and humbled!

Funny thing is Bill posted this right on my five year wedding anniversary too . Quite a coincidence hehehe..

Thank you all!
Vlad.

My congratulations and, thanks also....
This site has been quite an adventure for me, as I knew virtually nothing about Russian cameras when I first visited here. I have been interested in Russian history for quite a few years and, with my already avid interest in cameras, it was a "natural" when I first found this site. I also have the distinct honor or acquiring my first FSU camera, a very nice FED 3, from Vlad. Since then I have managed to add, at last count, 14 others of various manufacture and design... Thanks to this site and everyone here, I think I have been able to make "wise" choices and I have CERTAINLY learned much.... Thank you Vlad and, thank you to all the mambers here. I am looking forward to many more years and, a "thorough" education... Also, to Vlad, my best wishes on your five year wedding celebration!

Best Regards to all....
Frank
