What Festival is the camera celebrating, Kurshpetow?

Out of curiosity (as I couldn't afford to buy one now, nor do I have the space), are Zenit C shutters reliable? I don't mean for heavy use or anything, but if say 3 films were put through in a year would the shutter work for all 3 films?

Some years ago I bought one from a seller on ebay. I can't remember how much I paid, but I think it didn't seem expensive at the time. Unfortunately something went wrong with the shutter as I was running through the speeds to check them, (I don't know if it's necessary with these old Zenits but I was obeying the Zorki rule of winding on before changing the speed) so I sent it back for repair. The seller did so but He'd made the mistake of cleaning the edge of the focusing screen and it made a big difference, so I asked if He could do the same to the rest of the screen and He did, it was at least 2 stops brighter if not more. I probably annoyed Him a bit by asking Him to do it though. But the shutter went wrong again so I sent it back and either got a refund or asked Him to send me a Fed 2 instead. That worked well enough, although rangefinder patch was very pale. Then after a while I noticed that the patch seemed to be slightly to the right of viewfinder frame so I sent an ebay message asking Him about it but I didn't receive a reply. I'd probably annoyed Him too much.

Sean, this is Youth Festival of 1957 camera. There were Zorki-C, Zorki-2C, Zorki-4 and Zenit-C with such engraving. Zenit-C and the Zorki-4 are the hardest to find, especially with this full kit.

To be honest, I do not like zeniths as a camera for shooting, so it's hard for me to talk about the strength of the shutter.

Thanks for the reply, Sergey.

Does anyone have any idea if zenit C's can take dioptre/eyepiece correction lenses?

I have not seen original devices, except that you can try to print something similar on a 3D printer

A lens (in this case a dioptre correction lens) can be printed?

You can print a suitable mount, the lens will have to be selected empirically

Ah, yes, I see. It's obvious when you put it like that, lol.
