Siluet Rapid Auto: Princelle does not mention whether it's production or prototype, but looks like prototype by all indications. Anyone know anything outside of what Princelle has about this camera?

Does this article imply that all these camera out with Great October engravings?? Or just the 1967 production run?

In the 1960 and early 1970 years Soviets used to make industrial exhibitions in Brazil. After the end of exhibition they used to sell goods through representative firms. So I did personally see various Smena Rapid, Lada 2, Lantan, and Proton projector. Lada 2 was made in prototype only once subsequent series were equal to previous Lada with black paint instead of ocre colour.
Those cameras seems to be normal run types without any comemorative engravings

Yea, no one of these still cameras had "Great October - 50" engravings on the body. The trick of fortune - although pronounced loudly, many cameras from this list never came to mass-production ...

BTW Listing the same Sovetskoe Foto issue (No. 11, 1967) I have found an interesting article about soviet cameras foreign trade. If someone is interested, just let me know - I will scan it to place in our catalogue.

Regards,
Aidas
