ZORKI (Leica copy) rangefinder camera, from 1951-53
MADE IN USSR!
ZORKI rangefinders are Soviet copies of Leica camera and this is the Zorki-1, the first model. Rangefinder and viewfinder are still separate windows, and they are bottom loading cameras. One also needs to remember to cock the shutter before changing the shutter speeds.
On a brighter side – being almost a straight Leica copy, “Barnack” is among the smallest and the lightest rangefinders, and with it’s lens folded makes a really small package.
