Zenit-11 83159358 Helios-44m 8249921 in excellent condition!
MADE IN USSR!
The Zenit 11 is a solidly-built camera with essentially the same Leica type cloth shutter as earlier Soviet rangefinder and SLR cameras. It has an external selenium meter mounted on the prism front above the lens. The meter isn’t coupled to the camera. The Zenit uses the M42 Pentax screw-mount lens which means there is a variety of lenses from all over the world that will fit it.
Partially depressing the shutter release stops down the lens. Additional pressure releases the shutter (source: http://home.att.net/~wayne.cornell/camera/russianslr.html).
Comes with HELIOS-44m 58mm f/2.0 lens famous for it’s slightly swirly biotar style bokeh.
Helios-44 is a vintage soviet line of fast fixed focal length(prime) lenses, in high demand nowadays for their fast aperture(f/2), which opens up a world of possibilities for photographer – selective focusing, low light photography, great portraits with vintage feel and beautiful bokeh courtesy of Carl Zeiss Biotar formula in use; for their ability to be mounted on various camera systems via affordable and easily available adapters.
Both camera and lens are in excellent condition!
No issues to report – all functions work, including the meter*
*Note: pls note that the selenium meter is loosing accuracy with age and might need to be compensated by increasing in exposure by a certain factor.
