Zenit 212K
1994-2003

Zenit-212K is the successor to the Zenit-122K with redesigned handgrip and more shutter speeds: 1/8s, 1/15s, 1/30s, 1/60s, 1/125s, 1/1250s, 1/500s plus B. Due to the extra slow speeds (1/8 & 1/15) the shutter speed knob sits higher. When turning the knob to slow speeds you can even clearly hear the extra clockwork sound!. Early 212K‘s came with Helios-44K 2/58 lens, but most of them come with the very sharp 2/50 mm Zenitar K2. The 212K has got a more ergonomic body. The selftimer is like the 122K, located inside the new ergonomic handgrip. The lightmeter is identical to the Zenit-122, but very slow on the added slow speeds due to inferior sensitivity. A simple 3 led meter, its hotshoe syncs to the usual 1/30.
Later version (serial 0200715) has no pc sync, position is blanked off. See photo with white 'Zenit' strap.
