Smena Symvol Stereo


A nicely crafted Smena Symvol stereo with coupled shutters and shutter speeds, elegantly done with a bracket similar to the one on the Sputnik.

Seems like a back plate from an early Smena body (Smena 1,2,3 or 4) with GOMZ logo was used as decorative piece on the front of the camera to cover the seam between two bodies. Unfortunately the aesthetics of the of the whole camera is offset by the crudely machined thick bottom plate. An interesting piece nevertheless.

According to Aidas Pikiotas, there was a series of DIY articles in Sovietskoye Foto magazines that explained who to make these homemade stereo cameras.
