1957 Zorki 4 with original 1957 Jupiter-8 50/2
Best not to let Nesster see this. He is partial to 1957 cameras.

It almost looks as though it was never used. It seems to work perfectly as well.
My Zorki 4K is pretty clean, but I think this one has it beat. Did it come with a take-up spool and tripod adapter?

Original box and immaculate case! That is simply incredible! Is the manual in English or Russian?

Edit: Forgot to mention...don't trust the straps on the case. I have had bad luck with old Russian/Ukrainian Leather.

Russian
Speaking of the manual...do you know what the numbered dial/ring is that surrounds the base of the shutter dial?

I did a portrait shoot with a friend a few weeks back, 60's theme so what better accessory than a Spotmatic?

Nice Zorki, looks in gorgeous condition!

I used to enjoy shooting with my FED 3 until the shutter broke but I always thought the Zorki 4 was a nicer looking camera.

I'll second that! Every FSU brown leather strap I have ever had has snapped. Very frustrating. K.

I agree that the Zorki 4 is better looking than the FED 3, though I like the utilitarian appearance of the FED. The fit and finish of the Zorki are much better as well.

Nice Kodak collection. The Retinas sure are beautiful. Maybe I should do a shot of my IIIc next to my Zorki
I'm still keeping my eye out for a Retina II with knob wind.
