The Moskva-2 (MOCKBA-2 in Russian) is a well-known Soviet-made Super-Ikonta C copy. This model was in production at KMZ plant from 1947 to 1956.

The camera uses standard 120 film and produces eight 6x9 frames. It has a coupled rangefinder, a hinged back door and a double exposure prevention mechanism.

  • Lens: Industar-23, F=11 cm, 1:4.5 (aperture settings from 4.5 to 32).
  • Shutter: Moment-1; Speeds: B, 1- 1/250.

Moskva-2 was sold without a case, and this explains why most of these cameras have worn exterior. They are much cleaner inside though.

This is a very capable user and a great collectible. Back in the 50's, Moskva-2 was an expensive and prestigious high class camera used mostly by the professional photographers. You could often find a photographer with a tripod mounted Moskva at many tourist attractions. It was mostly used for high quality group portraits.
