LEICA COPY RUSSIAN ZORKI-6 WITH LENS INDUSTAR-61 and English manual, IN BOX.
------------
The Zorki 6 are a development of the earlier Zorki cmeras, derived from the Fed and Fed 2 cameras, being themselves copies of the Leica II and III 35mm cameras. Many of the controls and much of the layout will also be familiar to Leica screwmount users.

Main difference from Zorki-5:
The back cover is opening
This camera have selftimer

While certainly not in the same class as the Leica III, the Zorki 6 actually have some advantages. Tops among its advantages is the fact that you are not carrying an irreplaceable collectors item should you decide to use it. The viewfinder is also significantly brighter than a Leica screwmount - or the Fed cameras for that matter - and is coincident with the rangefinder.

The rangefinder base is a bit wider than the Leica screwmount as well. In fact, the Zorki 6 have the widest rangefinder base of all Russian Leica screwmount copies, giving a strong theoretical advantage for accurate focusing.

These cameras were produced in the USSR by factory "KMZ" (Krasnogorsk city in Russia) since 1960 up to 1966. It shows serial number of the camera, which first two figures are year of release.

Caution: The shutter must be wound first, only then can you set the correct speed.

This is the rangefinder camera,made by Krasnogorsk(KMZ), a suburb of Moscow, former USSR, In the 1965.
