Welcome Dorian, I'm sure there are people here that can answer your questions, what are they?

Is yours aerial or regular AKS?

Cheers,
Vlad

Spasibo Vlad,
The man i bought it from in Kiev listed it as aerial. I need to post pics however, it looks just like the one listed here ( the link I used in original post ) However, I'm not sure the difference between aerial and regular. I'm very new to working this camera. ( I've never had a movie film camera before but I'm VERY excited to learn ) I am a WW2/BOB Soviet re-enactor and I got it to film some of the battles.

Thank you to you or anyone else who can give any information at all on this camera. Vash drug, Dorian Motowylak

Some information in Russian is there: http://www.zenitcamera.com/archive/aks/index.html

How to understand a camera serial numbers is there:
http://www.zenitcamera.com/qa/qa-serialnumbers.html
Shortly, AKS used this formula: 3YQNNN,
where 3 -- KMZ,
Y -- the last digit of year,
Q -- a quarter in this year,
NNN -- the sequence number.
(For example: 314042 = KMZ, 1951, 4th quarter, 42nd camera)
