Hello everyone,

Thanks for invitation to this new site. I already saw some old friends here. I feel that this will be a great site for those fascinating Soviet cameras.

Cheers,

Zhang

Welcome Zhang!

It is great to have a member from China!! I am truly honored to have you here. I was always fascinated by Chinese versions of Soviet cameras, maybe you can shed some light in some of the discussions we will have about them!

Man.. with all these members registering from all over the world it feels like the first half of the Magnificent Seven movie :).

Hallo Zhang!

That's a very flattering thought, Vlad! I might add that there is no-one who knows more about Chinese cameras than Zhang - he is indeed a hero!

Cheers, Ian

Hi Zhang,

Nice to see you here! Have not corresponded with you for a while but good to hear from you! I know you find some very fine Russian cameras there in China, as well as great old Chinese cameras!
So welcome to the site!

Hi Zhang,
As a fellow newbie, Welcome !!
I had read many of your threads through most of the "other" Russian camera groups. You have quite an interesting collection. What I really enjoy is how you have combined your interests in both the FSU equipment and vintage Chinese Wrist Watches.

We look forward to sharing info with you.

Regards,
Steve

Hello everyone,

Many thanks for your warm welcome. I have learned a lot from Bill in the past about rare Russian cameras, and I hope to learn more from all of you too in the future.

Steve,Thanks for your comments. I first combined Russian cameras with Russian watches, and then branched out to vintage Chinese watches. When Russian cameras became harder to find about two years ago, I picked up a Russian Almaz watch( an improved Soviet version of the famous Zenith 135), and started from there.

Ian, You flatter me.(about the hero)

Cheers,

Zhang

Hello Alain,

I am pleased to meet you too. I posted a long thread on rangefinder forum, did you see it? There are some interesting Chinese optical toys. Please let me know what you are interested, and I will see if I can help.

Kind Regards,

Zhang

Hi Juhani,

It is still hard to imagine where did you find all those vintage Chinese cameras? They must be quite rare outside China.
I managed to find some extremely rare Chinese lenses that were used by Chinese military and professionals.

Your article on communist professional SLRs is very informative.

Kind Regards

Zhang
