Soviet ZENIT ET film SLR camera

Comes with MC Helios-44-3 58mm f/2

Zenit ET 9109058 Helios-44-3 9147308 in excellent condition!



The Zenit ET 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 highly desirable MC HELIOS-44-3 58mm f/2.0 lens famous for it’s slightly swirly biotar style bokeh.

Overall the MC HELIOS-44-3 is considered the optimal version of the Helios-44 line.


Both camera and lens are in excellent condition!


No issues to report, fully functional, except for the meter – selenium meter does not work, but it doesn’t affect other camera functions of course.

Smooth and clean camera and lens from year 1991 – recommended!
