Somewhat like this is happening.

Soviet lenses with Pentax K-mount Moxies@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=3229&REPLY_ID=19210 Want to Buy Wed, 20 Sep 2017 13:58:32 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3229 Quote:
Most of Apo Telezenitar 135 you will find in M42 mount (-M).
Zenitar-K 50/1.9 is not hard to find but Zenitar-K 50/1.7 I think never really existed. Zenitar-K 2.0 is also not hard to find at good price, even on ebay. Construction looks a bit cheap, but image quality is very good.
Also A mount with K-mount look to be rare, I never saw one, only M39, M42 and Nikon F I can see.
Look like you forgot the Mir-47K which is not easy to find, but findable, and a good lens to use. Also rare, but not so hard to find if you are patient is VarioZenitar-K 25-45mm/2.8-3.5.]]>

There you have it. And very often these two are mixed, as people don't know the small difference.

Thanks, Altix, for your explanations. [:)]
As for the LTM 1,5/5,8cm, I can say that the first I have got is perfectly adjusted for Leica: I have made a roll with it and two photos are in the topic. Perfect. I don't know for the other ones.

Concerning the Hexanon, Luiz, thanks for the information. But it's too new and too expensive for me...[:D]

AmitiƩs. Jacques.]]>

Bravo, Altix!
So, a 1,5/5cm lens, officially. But possibly 6cm, by S.H., and by the diameter...

FED-50 with soviet film, soviet developper Moxies@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3225 Photo Gallery Fri, 01 Sep 2017 11:36:23 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3225
Here are some shots done with FED-50. The camera is very pleasant to use, well built and works like a charm. It came with leather suitecase and hood.
The film is an old cine Svema (when developped, you can see on the negativ "Bezopastnaya Svema", which mean ~Secured Svema. At this time existed other type of film, with highly inflamable material (so needed particular precaution to store). So this inscription meant that it's not an highly inflamable film, you can store it normaly. They stopped to mark it during the 70's, so that give an idea of the age of the film). Film is already on a cassette, so I don't have precise informations about it.
I used soviet developper and soviet fixator. Developper is UP-2 (expired in 1966), fixator is simply named fixator (Fiksazh/Фиксаж) and is expired from 1964.

As you can see on thoses photos, all this old powder works very well :) .



Myra or Luch 2? RCCCUK@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=3224&REPLY_ID=19164 Collectors and Users Open Forum Fri, 01 Sep 2017 02:10:07 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3224 Quote:
Hi Nick,

The badges on your projector are in Cyrillic. The upside-down 'V' over the 'omo' is in fact a stylised Cyrillic 'L', therefore LOMO.
The name that you are reading as 'MYRA 2' is in fact 'LUCH 2'. The LUCH-2 was available in English.
