«Zorki», technical specifications

"Zorki" (1948-1956) - almost an exact copy of the pre-war apparatus "Leica II"
The type of photographic material used is a 35 mm perforated photographic film 35 mm wide (film type 135) in standard cassettes. It is possible to use special double-case cassettes with a divergent slit. The frame size is 24 × 36 mm.
Charge the film - from the bottom (removable bottom cover).
The case is made of aluminum alloy, first stamped, and since 1952 cast. The cast housing is much more durable and rigid (deformation of the case was a frequent malfunction of "FEDs" and early "Zorky").
Shutter - mechanical, with cloth curtains, with horizontal movement of curtains.
Combined platoon of the shutter and rewinding the film. Setting shutter speeds is only possible with the shutter cocked. Rotating head of extracts.
Shutter speeds are 1/20, 1/30, 1/40, 1/60, 1/100, 1/200, 1/500 s and "B" (or "Z"). In 1948, part of the cameras were produced with a shutter speed of 1/1000 sec. Since 1955 a new range of shutter speeds has been installed - 1/25, 1/50, 1/100, 1/200, 1/500 s. In a small amount of equipment were produced with long exposures (more than 1/20 s).
Undocumented function - long exposure "D" is possible when the shutter is opened at the "B" shutter speed and the reverse rewind lever is turned.
The lens mount type is a M39 × 1 screw connection.
The working segment is 28.8 mm. In contrast to the pre-war "FEDs" the working interval was standardized (28.8 ± 0.03 mm), which eliminated the individual adjustment of interchangeable lenses. Part of the issue was completed with ZK-2/50 lenses ("Sonnar Krasnogorsky", prototype "Jupiter-8") or ZK-1,5 / 50 (prototype "Jupiter-3").
The optical viewfinder, parallax, is not combined with the range finder. The rangefinder base is 38 mm. The magnification of the viewfinder eyepiece is 0,44 ×, the rangefinder eyepiece is 1 ×

The camera gives all the signs of full working capacity, but I do not give full guarantee and responsibility due to the return of the exhibit.

"FED-3" version "1A" (Humpbacked)

Release 1A cocking the shutter is carried out by the swivel head; around the window of the viewfinder there is no decorative frame- (rare collector models); the name of the camera is obliquely, with "3" under the inscription "FED" across the line; on the right side at the top there is a projection not only horizontally, but also vertically; Exposures are applied to the head of the exposures.
