Dec 22: Zen & the art

Dec 22: Zen & the art

A Zenit 11. Made in the Soviet Union in the 80's using 50's technology. A Pentax Spotmatic looks modern compared to this beast. 'Advanced' features include an instant return mirror, auto stop down of lens aperture and a hot-shoe... ! The best I can say is that it works without batteries and the 58mm f2 lens is actually quite good... And that's the lot. No more old cameras to show...

other sizes: small medium original

When I was a little boy, I longed to have a Zenit. Now I am a (bit) older I am lusting after the new Nikon D2X, somethings never change. Nice picture...

LOL David, you left yourself open for this: "You'll have to go out and buy MORE old cameras to shoot!"
