Krasnogorsk Zenit S

A simple recipe:
Take a Zorki case preferably a 1c.
Preserving the dimensions of the body, add a compartment and a reflex prism.
This gives a complete new camera, which prefigure the renewal and creativity of the Soviet industry, leading to one of the best selling camera in the world: the Zenit E.
Meanwhile, this first model might have been called ... Zorkiflex.
So, a reflex camera with focal plane curtain type shutter from 1 / 25th of a second to 1 / 500th of a second and B. Focus on ground lens. glued mirrors type reflex viewfinder with rectifier.
It is necessary to cock the shutter before focusing. In fact, the cocking action, using a string (!!!!!) drops down the mirror at an angle. We can not see anything through the viewfinder when the unit is not cocked ...
The lens is interchangeable, screw mount 39mm and is, in general, an Industar 22 f: 3.5 / 50mm.
The Zenit S is the evolution in 1955 of the first Zenit of 1950.
It benefits from the synchronized shutter of the Zorki 2.
About 233,000 copies will be produced.
