Shkolnik


Shkolnik is an original box-type soviet camera, it uses 120 film, frame size - 6x6. Its telescopic viewfinder has a magnification of .45x and its elements are made of plastic. The two element glass lens has a focal length of 75mm and is fixed focus; all objects from 3.5 meters to infinity come out sharp [2].
Two variants were made, the second had a shutter speed of 1/125 and a metal (chrome) ring around the shutter housing.



Produced: 1962-1969
Name: „Школник“
Producer: MMZ
Frame size: 6x6 cm.
Lens: Triplet 8/75.
Shutter: 1/60 + B.

Quantity: ± 550.000 units. (sovietcams.com)

Even though there were 550,000 units manufactured, this camera was made for children, so many of these were broken or lost, and it is a current belief that only a handful of them have survived over the years, making this camera extremely hard to find nowdays.
