Zenit-S
[zenits571295]

This is yet another Leica copy with a built-in reflex housing - Zenit-S, one of the original Soviet designs and the first mass produced Soviet SLR camera.

The Zenit-S replaced the original Zenit in the mid-50's. It added a flash synchronization mechanism and a new mirror drive - the mirror was lowered with a string (this feature was mentioned by McKeown in his price guide).

The camera is essentially a Zorki-S (Leica II (D) copy) with a rangefinder replaced with a reflex housing. The film loads from the bottom, as in screwmount Leicas. It has all the Zorki-S specifications. The camera is very compact and handles nicely.

The camera has a flash synch mechanism with the adjustable synch timing advance (from 0 to 25 ms). Also, the shutter speed can be selected before of after the film is wound and the shutter is cocked.

  • Shutter speeds - B, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100, 1/250, 1/500.
  • Lens - Industar-50, F=5 cm, 1:3.5, coated, still 39 mm mount, but the optical registration is different from the Leica type lenses. Leica lenses will mount, but can only be used for close-ups.

The original Zenit evolved into some nice SLRs - Zenit-S, Zenit-3, Kristall, Zenit-3M. After that, in the late 60's the Zenit-E came and with millions and millions copies produced, it made the Zenit name a symbol of mediocrity. .
