Hua Shan / Smena
1959

Hua Shan or Huashan means -Sparking- Brilliant- .

Two models with slightly different lettering; third model with three views


Smena licence produced camera, meaning Hua mountain, made in Sichuan. Case is very bad leatherette. Camera itself is better than Changjiang. A bit better and smenalike chromes, rear cover looks factory made now. Smells horrible inside, the hospital like bittersweet one that I almost forgot. Book about Chinese cameras says these were made around 1961, but more likely in 1960 and around 20.000 pieces.

Last picture compare the two back logos HuaShan and ChangJiang.
