Krasnogorsk Kristall

Camera produced jointly with the Zenit 3 between 1961 and 1962 with the same enhancements (cocking lever and timer). 65,000 copies.

It marks time with important evolutions that will be included also on the later models including the Zenit E:
The cocking lever integrates the trigger.
The flash sync has a selector X / M
The back is hinged, thus facilitating the film loading.
However, to reduce costs, the unit is wearing a cast metal hood with gray hammered painting really ugly.
It comes with the Industar-50 f: 3.5 / 50mm.
