Smena 8M

Doubtless the most popular Smena camera. You still can find it everywhere in post soviet area. Camera identical to Smena-8, with new design and symbols in settings. No selftimer (although happened to see variant with one).

Serial number engraved either on camera underbody, either on the bottom of shutter housing.



Produced: 1970-1995
Name: „Смена-8M“
Producer: LOMO
Lens: Triplet-43 4/40

Quantity: 21.041.191 units (with Smena-8 camera).


Original price (in year 1986) 15 roubles. (sovietcams.com)

Several different versions: commemorative, latin only red text, cyrillic only red text, black name plate (beware of fakes!) and Cosmic-35M for UK-export
