Wiki Catalog Entry

The Moskva-1

was the first Ikonta type folder made by the KMZ factory. First batches of Moskva-1 were made with Zeiss parts and tools. This model was in production at the KMZ factory for only 3 years, from 1946 to 1949. The camera uses standard 120 film and produces eight 6x9 frames. It features scale focusing, a hinged back door and a double exposure prevention mechanism.

Moskva-1 is quite uncommon and hard to find now. Earlier Moskva-1's were covered with black leather, and later - with brown leatherette. The Moskva-1 displays old KMZ logo - a tombstone type. You can see it in the lens, shutter, and inside the back door (source:
