Zorki 5 shots

  1. Just got back a "red" Zorki 5 that went to Oleg for repairs. I had my first roll of Tri-X loaded when an industrial accident occurred across the street and they brought in a Life Flight Helicopter. Was shooting with Jupiter 8 from a Zorki 3C.

  4. Nice shots! Zorki's are on my short list of 35mm cameras to get someday. I think they just got bumped up a notch on that list. :)

  5. The Zorki 5 and the Zorki 6 are nice because they have relatively bright viewfinders and the longer based rangefinder which makes focusing easier. The minus for the Z5 is that it's a bottom loader. The Z6, however is the only FSU Leica-like camera with a hinged back. Shutter speeds only go down to 1/25 but I can't remember the last time I used a slower speed, anyway. The attached shot is with the collapsible I-50 that came on the Z5.
