Krasnogorsk Zenit

Designed on the basis of a Zorki 1C  body on which the cover would have been removed to replace it with another integrating a prism, and the depth of the dark room would have been increased to integrate a mirror, It is the first SLR camera from industrial construction in the USSR.
The body is cast aluminum. It receives a Zorki curtain type shutter, with speeds range from 1 / 25s to 1 / 500s and B.
The prism is glued mirror type  and ground glass, the string system will appear with the Zenit C.
Its lens is originally an Industar 22 3.5 / 50 with M39 screw mount with maneuvering tab on the ring adjusting distances, plus a small foot holding under the lens holder. Securing rings for a neck strap are available.
It has been made a little more than 39,000 copies of this camera.
