Krasnogorsk Zorki 4

Gift from Jean-Marc. I warmly thank him.


The Zorki 4 is a direct evolution of the Zorki 3.

They have the effect of changing the sheathing of the body, or the style of engraving the name Zorki, or limited series celebrating the commemoration of the Party's birthday.
The camera incorporates all the functions of the 3M with a cover protecting more commands. It also has an adjustable flash sync.

The standard lens is the Jupiter 8 f: 2 / 50mm, but you may also find the Industar 50 f: 3.5 / 50mm.
