Soviet vintage Zorki 4 photo camera Industar 50-2 lens SLR lens Leather case Photographer gift Rangefinder 35 mm film camera collectible M42
The Zorki 4 was possibly the most popular of all Zorki cameras, with 1,715,677 cameras made by the KMZ factory in Krasnogorsk, Russia. The Zorki 4 was also the first of the Zorki cameras to be exported in large numbers to the west. It is a fully manual camera, and does not have a lightmeter. An additional lightmeter may be added by the hot shoe.
When the Zorki 4 rangefinder was introduced in 1956, its contemporaries included the Zorki S, Zorki 2S, FED 2b, Leica M3 (introduced two years before), Leica IIIg, Nikon S2, Canon VT, and Canon L1. The Zorki 4's production run outlasted all of them. When it morphed into the Zorki 4K by 1973, its contemporaries included the FED 4b, Leica M4 and M5, Nikon F2, and Canon F-1 and Canon Canonet QL 17 GIII.
The Zorki 4 is basically a Zorki 3S with a self timer. It retained all of the features and strong points of the 3S. The early bodies have a vulcanite body covering, engraved shutter speeds, and strap lugs. Later bodies have fabric covering and the shutter speeds (1/60 and 1/30 instead of 1/50 and 1/25) are silk-screened. By the mid-1960s, the strap lugs had disappeared.

Industar 50-2 lens
Focal length: 50mm
Number of petals of the diaphragm: 7 pieces
Optical scheme: 4 lenses in 3 groups (4-lens anatigmat). The scheme is similar to the Tessar lenses.
Diameter of the light filter: 35mm (there are also lenses with 33.5mm)
Of course, after you see the lens in reality, it turns out that it is much smaller than it seems in the pictures. Industar-50-2 - very light and compact lens, I can not believe that in those distant times could make such small lenses. I even got the impression that Industar-50-2 pulled out of the camera some sophisticated modern mobile smartphone.
But its dimensions do not interfere with Industar-50-2 to make wonderful pictures. Industar-50-2 is a lens with an average aperture. Its maximum number F is only F/3.5. For comparison, the F/3.5 diaphragm is 3 times darker than F/2.0, which is available for a number of lenses, for example, MC Helios-44m-7 2/58
