Made in USSR


This is my 1965 Zorki-6 rangefinder. In response to all the cell phone photographs I've taken lately, I thought it might be time to shoot a few rolls of film....

Well, the best info on that camera is from Fedka -- see:

I think the best thing to try with it is to use the "Sunny F16 Rule" and shoot a roll of film to get used to it.

See my post on that at:
