A very well done adaptation by a skilled technician, requiring lathe knowledge.
The lens is of course taken from na 8M Smena due the LOMO markings, in contrast to the GOMZ prism logo on the back

you could win the journey, when you had bought the camera and sent 2 photos taken with it to a contest. by the way: 90 francs were about 18$ in those days.]]>

The chrome on the top=plate is more crisp than on the plate under the top.
The engravings are filled with paint which I think wasn't usual for Zorkis.]]>

Of course these Zorki-C with nylonettes were frontrunner for KMZ. I think much easier to produce, the nylon-sheet was only glued on the housing, much faster to produce many cameras. But why did they stop to produce these grey ones in early 1959. Was it because the grey nylon got dirty easily. My grey Zorki-C has a leather-case with blue velvet inside and even I have blue marks on the backside of the nylon at the 2 places where you push the buttons to close the case. The green Zorki-C has red veltet inside the case. If you use cases without velvet the nylon will get really dirty. I tried to clean my grey nylonette with hair shampoo but couldn't remove the light blue dots. I will keep it as it is, this is natural and original for grey nylonettes, 2 blue dots.]]>

Thanks Lenny,

Some good advice there.

I've a Fed-2, which I like and use. I tend to agree that it is best to stick with the older ones so maybe the Fed 50 is not the one to go for.

I'll check out your recommendations.

Many Thanks]]>

I had already seen some on your photos on your blog.
I wonder if I will not buy a 6x6 camera one of these days. Just to change a bit...

If you want to show more photos, you can do it in the "photo gallery" forum.

AmitiƩs. Jacques.

Thanks Jaques!

Well, the square format is very interesting and "well balanced" in framing. Many loves it unconditionally, while other hate it the same way....
I like it very much....

Tomorrow I will test the "new" Lubitel..... [:)]
Of course, I'll post other photos in the gallery.
This time I posted here by mistake.... [:D]
