Soviet 35mm SLR camera with Helios-44m lens
MADE IN USSR!
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 HELIOS-44m 58mm f/2.0 lens famous for it’s slightly swirly biotar style bokeh.
Camera and lens are in excellent condition!
No issues to report – fully functional.
Celenium meter reacts to light, but readings from meters this old should be taken with a pinch of salt – some adjustment needs to be factored in after testing against modern meter for instance.
Frame size: 24×36.
Lens: Helios-44m 2/58.
Shutter: 1/30s-1/500s + B.
Comes with leather case / strap and lens cap.
