Krasnogorsk FS-12

The FS-12 is similar to the FS-3, but the body is that of the Zenit 12 series.

This camera comes in a small metal case inside which are secured the Zenit 12S body, the Tair 300mm 1 / 4.5 lens, the butt and some accessories including an Helios 44M-4 1/2  and a filter set  for the 300 and two screwdrivers. At last, the small case weighs 5.5 kilograms  ...
The camera, once completely fitted, is around 3 kilos and, frankly, if you want to take pictures of an official visit of George "Dobeliu", take something else ... After the time is spent to frame your photo, it is not sure that you will be the first shooter. And opposite, they do not shoot with a FP4.
In practice, this is not really a top of ergonomics. Once the sniper is shouldered, the viewfinder is not really in front of the right eye and the cell is not one of the simpler to use. However, it is possible to use the 1 / 60th or 1 / 30th with a 300 mm without producing a blur photo.
