Sovetskoe Foto 1927 / Foto-Goz

This article about the Foto-Goz, the first Soviet camera constructed in a state factory and the first Soviet camera to use perforated 35mm film, was published in the a 1927 issue of Soviet Photo magazine (No. 6). Here are photos of the covers of the magazine, the article about the Foto-Goz, and some other interesting pages from this issue. Notice an advertisement from EFTE and some beautiful gravure photographs of a Siberian expedition. There are no known examples of Foto-Goz in collections, as far as I know. This magazine is in my collection.

Many of the earlier issues of Sovetskoe Foto and Proletarskoe Foto magazines are illustrated with actual high-quality gravure prints of Russian photography, however the quality of the paper is unfortunately low (newsprint). Later issues used offset printing.
