Equipment Type: Rangefinder
Equipment Brand: Zorki
Equipment Model: Зоркий-4 Possibly The Most Popular Russian Rangefinder
Price (S$): $120
Description:
If you read Cyrillic, then you know its none other than then Zorki 4.

Made by KMZ factory in Krasnogorsk, Russia, the Zorki 4 was possibly the most popular of all Zorki cameras. Taking photos with the Zorki-4 is a pleasant experience as they have made effort to make it as user friendly as possible. The camera body which is cast aluminium is extremely clean(Condition 9 and above) with a cool black enamel paint Industar 50 which is a 50mm/3.5 lens.

One thing deserved to be mentioned is that all the shutter speeds are engraved, not printed like some batch of Zorki 4 and they fade off quite easily. Its so bad that you have to guess which is which shutter speed.

Rangefinder properly aligned and clear with the shutter speeds working fine throughout the range. It has a built in diopter switch which you can adjust to suit your view.

Very clean camera and definitely an enjoyable rangefinder experience taking sharp and nostalgic pictures if you follow the below guideline religiously.

You activate the shutter by turning the large wheel on the right side of the camera, set the speed by pulling up on the top dial and carefully turning it to the desired speed, set the desired aperture on the lens, focus, and shoot.

Meaning you don't, must not, never ever, taboo, condone, ban and refrain yourself from setting shutter speed first and then wind the film.

The Industar 61 lens is in good condition with no fungus or haze.
Comes with a dedicated Zorki 4 rich leather casing.

See what this Industar-61 52mm f2.8 is capable of.

Please PM with handphone numbers if keen. Thanks.

Photobucket is down. Will post pics once serviced is resumed.
