So, the tip of rangefinder is a circular one, a "disc", like on the Leicas... Yes, I had seen that your camera was already on the JLP!... Congratulations!

If I dared... I suppose that the belt of the camera is made of aluminium. But what about the two plates and the shutter box itself?

Really thanks to share what you have: not so common about rare cameras!

I also doubt that it's fake, since this one is not the only one, there are at least 3 exemplars showed on this topic :)
Also if there is more than one, it shows that it was not a mistake in engraving the sn.

Also interesting to see that sn91 exist in Kiev and Zorki mount, so if it was special batch, it was not related to specific camera. (or the 2 lenses showed here don't have original mount)]]>
Interesting homemade piece or is it? xya@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2879&REPLY_ID=16254 Collectors and Users Open Forum Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:39:06 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2879 Quote:
to me it looks as if someone has taken the body of a folding 6x9 camera to build a fixed one. the original opening of the film plane seems to be 6x9. if the lens comes from a 6x6 lubitel, it would not cover 6x9. so it makes sense to covert it, obviously to 6x4.5 (?), hence the necessity of a new red window for the new format.

the original body doesn't look homemade, maybe someone can identify it. perhaps it's a prototype, quite some companies building 120 film cameras tried to adapt their pruduction line compete with 135 film.]]>

Hi Jacques!

In fact, since there is no documentation about these lenses, there is a lot of question to solve :). The main answer being why did they start making some multi coated lenses in the early 1950's and then stopped (wasn't it a kind of substential progress for color photo?!) and why so few of theses lenses were produced as they seem to be rare enough... Maybe I'm mistaking but they seem to be as hard to find as ZK ones but not as expensive ecause no one is looking for them :).

A curious Leica fake... Jacques M.@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2723&REPLY_ID=16244 Collectors and Users Open Forum Mon, 22 Jun 2015 11:14:46 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2723 Quote:

No idea concerning this shutter box made in iron sheet?
I don't remember having seen a Leica like mechanism made of that material. As for the plates and the buttons made in iron too... But I am far for knowing all of them.

Just a guessing. At first sight, it is probably easier to make the mechanism of a prototype in iron sheet whereas the corresponding production will be made of brass or alloy. So, yes, that would leads towards a prototype.

But does this camera, as it is, lead us towards the Neuca? Probably not: they seem too far. This camera would be rather a sort of "orphan" with, perhaps, as ancestry, the mechanism of the Neucaflex... Unless the Neucaflex is derived from this camera??

AmitiƩs. Jacques.]]>

Finally I found a choice of lenses. Nothing extraordinary, but here they are:
First row: Mir 20H s/n 860811 (converted to M42), Industar-69 no s/n (adapted to M39 FFD), Jupiter-12 s/n 9021676 (M39), Jupiter-8 s/n 6226854 (M39),
second row: Industar-26m s/n 1404203 (M39), Industar-61 L/D s/n 947005 (M39), Helios-44 s/n 0256726 (M39 Zenit),
last row: Jupiter-9 s/n 6102545 (M39 Zenit), Jupiter-11 s/n 7102274 (M39 Zenit). Missing on the photo: Orion-15 s/n 760592 (M39).
The Mir came with a custom made adapter M42 to M39. For both possibilities focus is spot-on. They are all standard versions, the Jupiter-9 is a bit strange, it has what seems to be a custom made distance scale, ∞, 30m, 10m ..., perhaps a repair. The 26m was a present from a friendly seller.

That's a nice set to start lens collection [:)]]]>
