Thank you Jacques

I bought it in an auction in Sens last week. 300 euros + taxes. it is quite expensive but so hard to find such complete outfit.....
I bought also a FT2 and a Voskhod (with active lightmeter...incredible...!!).
I miss a F21.... too expensive...

There is another auction in Limoges next friday...With a few Russian cameras too...I think I will be there as I am in Toulouse all week...Not so far..

All the best

There should be a plastic "lens" that covers the "flash ready" lamp now well visible.

A classic Kiev 1948, mainly with Jena parts. Not really different from my Kiev 1949. 1948 Kievs seem very variable from the Dresden side to the Jena one...
The lens is interesting. It's a late rigid 1948 ZK one which looks regular.


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/17122011_Kiev 1948 002.jpg

In the back, one of my two cats. And between the two, a prewar Kine Exakta: massive and impressive. Much more sophisticated than the contemporaneous Leicas or Feds! It's not the first TLR: it has the rectangular magnifier, not the round one.

Amitiés. Jacques.

Hi Fred,
Beautiful! And complete, with all the papers...
It seems you had it in France, perhaps Limoges?

I gave up trying to collect such outfits: not enough room...

Hi Jacques!!

I bought it on ebay to a guy who is also a professional seller and who lives in Normandie..
I went to Limoges last friday
Very interesting sale... Only a few people in the room.. So most of item have been sold a starting price, except 2 or 3 very special items.
Not a lot of Russian cameras..
I got a Kiev IIIa and Jupiter 8 in good shape (light meter ok) for 36 euros and a very nice Salyut S with Vega and back for 60 euros. Only problem for this one, is that I see only one curtain on shutter...Not easy to fix..
As prices were very low, I came back with 2 full cases of different cameras.. I need to sell them now and buy new Russian cameras...
The best was a Nikkor QD-C 5.6/15mm AI like new...Not really Russian lens....

All the best

Jacques,

congrats to the 1948 KIEV.

Here are my 2 newest finds.

First a Zorki 3 with early serial number and screw in the middle under the rangefinder window:









I have installed new shutter curtains and now it works fine.

The second is a rarity I think. It's a Horizont Revue with matching box, the two filters, the hand grip, german papers and german instruction booklet! I have never seen a complete set before. Only the leather bag is missing.

An interesting thing: The name Horizont is written with a "Z" on the booklet and the camera itself, but on the box there is written in big letters "HORISONT-REVUE" with an "S" :-)





Unfortunately someone has removed all body screws (I think, I have replacements) and the release button has fallen out (but it was in the packet).


Edit: As I see on Aidas' site it is this one:

http://sovietcams.com/index.php?-2017518783
"6. Very uncommon version, under name "Horizont Revue" in Roman characters. Were released for W.Germany market. Very few early cameras have 1/250s markings on the top plate."

It has the 1/250s marking. So it seems to be a nice find :-)

Ulrich

Hi Ulrich!
I did not know there are "Horizont Revue"...
Your early Zorki 3 is fine: they are becoming rare now. And your lens is probably the good one by the datas. I bought my # 00707 without lens, and I have put on it a '52 one.

Amitiés. Jacques.

Jacques,

I knew about the Horizont Revue (I have seen one or two on ebay the last years), but I have never seen one (or a normal Horizont) with box and papers.

Yes, I think it's the original lens on the Zorki 3. 707 is a nice serial number, are you now looking for number 747? :-)

Martti,

great finds, specially the FED lens. I am looking for one of it too, but they are really rare to find.

By the way, most of the missing screws of the Horizont-Revue I could find in the packet, and for the other ones I have had replacements. Now it works and looks as new.

A very nice No Name Kiev arrived here today. It looks like new, even the matching leather case without name is like new. And it works very smooth.

It is from 1963, comes with a 1,5/50 Sonnar lens and has not the OCCUPIED engraving on the back! So which version is it? As I know the first series has the additional engraving, is from 1963 and has Sonnar lens, and the second series is from 1964 without the engraving on the back and without Sonnar lens or with Jupiter lens. And as I can see nobody has opened it before, so no mix of parts.

What's that? While inspecting the leather bag I found "USSR OCCUPIED GERMANY" printed inside on the leather strap of the bag. Has anyone seen this before?








Edit: Here's a picture of the leather strap:

I don't have such a "no name"...
BTW, what is the serial number of the Sonnar? It seems that some sellers put any Zeiss lens on this camera...

Jacques,

thanks. It's a post war Sonnar from Zeiss Ikon Stuttgart, a late one without the red coating marking. So it seems to be the original one. The serial number is 1170766. I have had two or three of them, their serial numbers are very different, some have only 5 digits, some have seven digits and the numbers spread wide. I don't know how Zeiss Ikon has numbered the Sonnars in post war times.
By the way, I haven't cleaned the camera until now, it comes out of the sellers packet in this state :-)

Hi Ulrich,

About postwar numbers, for CZ Oberkochen (Stuttgart):
- # 10000 to 500000:years 1946-50 (Opton)
- # 500000 to 1,1 Mn: years 51-53 (Opton)
- # 1,1Mn to 2,6 Mn: years 53-59 (CZ, except for Comecon sales)

For CZ Jena (East Germany), the numbers follow prewar ones:
- # 3 Mn to 3,2 Mn: 1945-49,
- # 3,2 Mn to 3,47 Mn: 49-52,
- # 3,47 Mn to 4 Mn: 52-55,
- # 4 Mn to 5 Mn: 55-58.

Here are the official numbers, not very precise, I confess. If it can help...

Amitiés. Jacques.

Jacques,

thanks. So it's one of the first ones that are labeled with "Carl Zeiss" only. That's nice :-)

It would be interesting to know which 1,5 Sonnars were put on the No Name Kievs, but I think we don't have enough samples for it...

Jacques,

I have cleaned it now (even if there was only a bit dirt on it) and now it looks really as "out of the factory". I've never had such a shiny Kiev before! Seems that the NoName Kievs have better chrome finish.

Edit: Here's a picture after cleaning it.

As I promissed yesterday, here are some pics of my No Name Kiev
I bought it a few years ago in Drouot in Paris, in an auction sale.
I remember the price was higher than a Contax II (But the Contax were very cheap in this sale)

Fred,

both cameras are really nice. I think the lens of the 1950 Kiev is the right one, but on the No Name Kiev is a lens of the late 40ies made by Carl Zeiss in Jena. As I know they were delivered with Zeiss Sonnars from Stuttgart/Oberkochen. But it's a nice lens it's one of the sort that was delivered with the Jena Contax or the TSVVS (regarding to the number).

Hello Fred (and Ulrich!),

A vey fine 1950 Kiev II, with a matching ZK lens, as it seems.
It's difficult to say if it is the right good one: my datas (thanks for them!) show that we can have very close bodies with lenses the numbers of which are (a bit) more large.

As far as I know, it's not exactly the same for the "no names". It seems that the 1963 bodies were assembled with different lenses: prewar CZJ which were always in stock, early postwar CZJ or even Opton which had not been used. Difficult to say more, as there are not many cameras of which we can discuss. The 1964 are easier: all seem to have the 1964 Jupiter...

Amitiés. Jacques.

Another nice find, a preseries FED 2a with low serial number (001231) in very nice looking condition.





Unfortunately the shutter was broken and so I disassembled it to repair it. It's really interesting these early preseries FED 2a are different inside. So there is a light baffle inside that hides the shutter drums and the two curtain rollers are hold by a plate on top which makes it easy to install the shutter. Very nice made.

And I have found out why it looks so new... It seems that it gets broken very early and unfortunately one small piece is broken that could not be repaired (only if you have another camera with such a low serial I think): The stop pin in the shutter under the big gear on the bottom was broken. You need a lot of force to break it, so I think that it was broken installed by factory and breaks short after using the camera. So it's a nice item for the shelf only.

Here are pictures of the light baffle inside the body and the plate on top of the shutter housing that holds the two rollers.






I forgot... Interesting is a comparison of the viewfinder window. The size of the early one is a bit bigger than on later ones. Here compared to a normal FED 2a. On top the 001231, on bottom one with serial 23xxx:

Hi Ulrich!

Thanks for the photos!
What you say about the size of the viewfinder window is interesting. Is the # 23xxx a preseries too, or a crossover model with preseries release button and round window?
All that would deserve a special study...

Amitiés. Jacques.

Jacques,

yes, I also wondered about the size of the viewfinder window. The one I got from you (003729) has the normal sized window.

The 023015 is a normal FED 2a with the round range finder window and the round collar around the release button. I think it could be one of the first ones, I also own a preseries crossover model with round range finder window and preseries release button that has number 022304.

Thanks for these precisions, Ulrich.
Perhaps there are other interesting parameters to examine closely on early Fed 2.
I remember for example having weighed the very early Alain's Fed 2 (number 000007, but I am not sure about the number of 0 !). And it was heavier than the "regular" preseries, much than expected, anyway (# c.10% if I remember).

Jacques,

more to the FED 2a 23015: It lies here since 2 or 3 years with a broken shutter in a box and I just took it out to see if I can repair the broken shutter of the 001231 with some parts of it. But they differed too much.

Now after looking on Aidas site I've seen that this 23015 seems to be an early "Type A2". As he knows they start at 27.000 so mine seems to be a nice find out off a box with broken cameras :-)

Now I have installed new shutter curtains on it and it works quite as a Leica.

Fine, Ulrich!
And what about the weights of the different elements of each camera?
Are there differences? It would be possible on prototype/preseries cameras...

My first one

I bought it yesterday in an auction
There were a lot of cameras and a full light meter collection to sell... About 450 light meters!!!
I had to bid on a box with a lot of 12 light meters to get this one.

Good surprise, it is in working order and seems to be accurate....

I have one question: The front with the selenium element is not as I have seen before.... Is it normal? Or may be a part is missing, but it seems not.....Help!!!

Thank you very much

Fred,

great finds! Specially the light meter in working condition. I can not say anything to the selenium cell because I have never had such a light meter. Maybe it was repaired sometimes ago?

Congratulations for this lightmeter in working condition, Fred!
Perhaps, it's not in original condition. It's the first time I see a Fed lightmeter with this parallelepipedic inclusion: maybe for repair?

Mine is like Bill's one in the wiki:

Great find, Fred.
I have two of them: 61xx and 3-6xx, the both are without any inclusions.
I agree with Jacques, it seems to be not in original conditions, but it is anyway a very rare lightmeter. Congratulation!

Regards, Alexander

Thank you all

I am a little bit disapointed because it seems to be really part of the meter...Not added part....
