And which one is your favorite?


I have not been using them very long, but I like using the Zorki 6 and the Kiev the best. I especially like that the
Zorki has diopter adjustment.

Here are mine , not many , but I still use them ....
All classics from Russia







I have to insert here also this little fellow ,wich is adopted in the Ruskis family ,it's not a rangefinder
but you have to admit, it's a beauty despite it's age ! A bit sad and lonely due to lack of usage.The slow times are a bit hesitant , and I don't know yet if it leaks light or not .

Nice group.
Do you have a favorite? I also have the same folder. Mine is an Isolette II and I enjoy using it.
How do you like the Helios 103 on your Kiev?

I like them all in their way ,but the kiev is the one , I think . I haven't work too much since I got that Helios ,I have a film in the kiev that I am waiting to finish to see the results .
Yes , definitely I love the Kiev the most.Best tactile feeling , best finish ,best working feeling and sound ,I think
The Fed feels reliable ,comfy and gave me good results.The less beautiful of all for me. But got it as new.
The Zorky 2C is the lightest , smallest and for this reason has a special place. Also for sentimental reasons, my dad had one like this. I dislike the loadind system by bottom.
The Zorky 4 is bigger and heavier than the 2C and a bit than the fed but I like the back loading comfy style . I am waiting to see the results heve to develop . I like the diopter adjustment and the big viewfinder.
I have some test films from the Isolette , but couldn't process them .Now I found a lab that can do that .Nice camera and confy to take anywhere .

I agree with you about the Kiev, a wonderful camera to use. Love the sound of the shutter, so soft.
