Thanks for the link geoffox23.

I think I found that site myself. I got a bit confused with the info then and have done just now when I clicked on the link.

I think I'll just make it easy on myself and say "both the helios's I've got on my list were probably made in the 50's, 60's."

My brain's stopped hurting now.

Sean, Oskar Barnack was maybe "silly' but we all know what he brought to photography. What is your contribution?

If we're going to get 'personal', my 'contribution' to photography has been to take very few pics, some of which aren't so bad really, considering I'm a talentless bozo, but the rest of my pics are woeful.[:I]

I merely made the observation that Oskar's loading system isn't as easy as other, admittedly later, methods.

There's no need for anyone to 'get their knickers in a twist'.[:p]

I'm pretty sure this lens has a zenit m39 thread, but could anyone confirm this for me, please?

Just left-click on the small pics and big ones will show:

You're not much worry! There is another picture of this camera, but much in the best condition! Perhaps someone has cured!

Only temporary, eh?

I suppose you're trying to not get bitten by the FSU (Fomer Soviet Union) camera bug. Look at me, I only really liked the zorki 4k, (with a slight soft-spot for the fed 2), and I've only been here for a week or so, and already started buying cameras I didn't know I wanted. The first one is a Zenit C. A nearly entirely rational decision as I need a replacement for the 4k because I can't see enough of te picture area in the viewfinder. I nealry got a fed 3a, nearly got a fed 2, but both are rangefinders and will probably have the same viewfinder 'problem' as the 4k. But I'd like a zenit crystal, and a zenit 4. A member here does have a crystall for sale, but I've not got the money for it. I don't know how many I'll end up with...]]>

Update: A seller on ebay has offered me a swap for one of his cameras. I need to send it to him by wednesday as he's going abroad again. I think it's probably to ukraine as he sells most of his stuff from there. I've told him he can look at it to decide if he wants it and then to send me the camewra I've chosen.

If this works out I'll delete this topic, if not I'll let you all know so's you can take it if yuo want it.

I was joking, Luiz! But I had not seen there is a flash synchro.

That said, and just to speak, we find an original flash sync. on the late Jena Contaxes: then it is on the cover. On Kiev 2a, this sync. is on the front. Nothing on the front here. And the paper dates of 1951, the 2a from 1955.

But the photo we have is far from being a proof!

Thanks for the reply contranatura. Yep, I do ask a lot of questions. I've also noticed that if any question gets answered, I almost immediately think of others to ask. A bit like chopping off one of the heads of the hydra.

Hmmm. Is it possible to see most of the frame on either fed 2 or fed 3? I don't mind too much if I have to move my eye around to see the frame, so long as the view is better than the 4k's.

I don't mind a non-instant return mirror as I've had a Bronica etrsi which didn't have one.

If your examples hve not been CLA'd, I have found a couple of shops on ebay that list almost all of their cameras as having been CLA'd, so that's not much of a problem. Dunno about the lenses being CLA'd though. I supose I'd have to ask.

I'm not too bothered about a lack of lens choice for the early slr's, as I've got a nikon F301

I don't really want a zenit 11 or 12 etc. as they are too 'similar' to my F301, even though they are different, if you see what I mean. My other camera is a ricoh 500gx. Ideally, I'd like a yashica mat 124g and a bronica etrsi as well. I'd consider one of those medium format Arax CM-mlu cameras as it seems they can do 4.5x6cm, but the info for the seperate backs they sell only says they are 6x6, so there's a bit of unprofessional lack of clarity there. I would also like 1 or 2 old fsu cameras. Apart from the FSU cameras I've already mentioned, I also quite like the look of zenit 4's and zenit 7's. I'd even consider a zenit 6 (without the zoom lens) if it had the metal flap that folds down over the meter.

If I had the money and the space to get that range of cameras, I'd have a small rangefinder with a built-in lightmeter (the 500gx), a 6x6 tlr (the 124g), a 4.5x6 slr, (the etrsi or Arax cm), a 35mm slr with flash metering and built-in autowinder (the F301), and 1 or 2 'old' 35mm FSU cameras.

A wide range of 'toys' to adapt to. :-)
