Hi Vlad!

The first Industar 26m were made from the aluminium barrel of the Jupiter 8. On the contrary, it is certainly possible to put a Jup8 lens part into an Industar 61 barrel...

But really, I don't see the benefit. It's much better to put a Nikkor 1,4 SC (from a bayonet mount) into a LTM Jup 8 barrel: you can gain 200 €... But surely it's not so evident...

About TSVVS... Jacques M.@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2094&REPLY_ID=14574 Collectors and Users Open Forum Tue, 26 Aug 2014 08:05:56 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2094 Quote:

Hi Juhani,

Yes, even for a well made fake...

All the rare cameras are expensive.
Now a fake TSVVS is much rarer than a geruine TSVVS,
Therefore a fake TSVVS is much more expensive than a genuine one.[:D]

We have a lot of chance: it's not the case!

Start-2 or not? Vlad@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2592&REPLY_ID=14572 Collectors and Users Open Forum Mon, 25 Aug 2014 09:32:34 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2592 Quote:
Thank you Luiz for your opinion, we will also check the lens mount to see if there is a mechanism for jumping diaphragm, we at least need to find some corresponding feature described for Start-2. Otherwise it's just a regular Start with a different engraving... If it's no different from Start-1 then I don't see the point of this camera [:)]

In the wiki, we have too two consecutive 1a: the 4642 (mine) and the 4643 (Aidas's).

Hi Phil!

It must be the soldier: it's always the same who is over exposed...[:D]

No, really, I wonder if it couldn't be the lens. On your third photo, the zone is clearly circular and centred. When it's a shutter, it's completely different. As for the film or you, I cannot imagine.

Dear Vlad
Thanks for the info.
A kind member has already forwarded a link and I now have it downloaded. Following your comment, I will not say who but it was really good of him to do so!
Are the "family" intending to republish the book in English? Otherwise, it doesn't make sense. The book is, after all, a tribute to Maizenberg's life.
Thank you

suitable Zenit-E body with M39 too. This lens is not usable with the old M39-Zenits, so it must be one Zenit-E.

Oh, the Cosmic 35.
This was my first 35mm camera as a teen. It was the poor man's, or occasional photographer's, or learner's camera. It was by far the cheapest 35mm camera one could buy.
Everything about it was basic. No exposure meter, plastic body, you had to cock the shutter before pressing the shutter button, and distance setting was also manual.
But it had a few shutter speed settings. The only thing about it that wasn't basic was the lens, which was terrific for such a cheap camera. I took some friends and parties shots with it, with a separate flashgun mounted on the shoe, and everyone was stunned with the resulting pictures when they were developed. They were very sharp with beautiful colours and contrast.
When they saw the pictures everyone was asking me to take their pictures with it. And it never disappointed, I even shot a wedding with it. You only had to be careful with the manual settings, but the lens could compete with the best high priced cameras for beautiful results.
