On eBay I found example of such camera:


but look on third picture, where label show perhaps manufacturing logo. And this logo is not from Kazan. Could it be that second production line for this camera existed, possibly in "Soviet block countries", Poland perhaps?
Also if this is movie camera, may be it belong to movie camera -> other section in Wiki catalog?

Hi Vlad,

If your contact in Austria would like additional photographs of my S-13 camera and lenses, please let me know.

Thank you David! I just wanted to clarify that. A gentleman from Australia had contacted me, he was writing an article about these S-13 cameras and had used the information from this wiki and it stated "GOMZ" . Glad we got it straightened out!

Hi Vlad,

I have had a good look at the camera and lens and there are no identifying logos or marks on either. I can only think that 'GOMZ' was a typing error on my part. Many appologies. I will correct the reference in the Wiki Catologue straight away.

A question to David Thomlinson regarding the picture #14 uploaded: David you state in the wiki entry that this camera is made by GOMZ? As far as I know it's a KOMZ-made camera? Was this a typo or there is in fact a GOMZ logo on this camera?

Same logo can be seen at:

For sure it is a Polish assembled camera! The Eagle and the WZFO logo
denotes its origins.
See the same logo at:

Oh and what's weird to me about this example is that the camera logo itself is in Polish with Polish sign and the lens has Cyrillic writing which is indicative probably of the lens assembly being from Kazan...
Vlad Posted - Aug 09 2009 : 12:17:54 AM
yea it's a Polish logo and Mike Schenk (sovietcams) can correct me but my belief is that these cameras originally designed in Kazan were exported and manufactured or at least also assembled in Poland, Czech republic and some other Warsaw pact countries...
