    Any patriots out there?

    My friend just sent me a link to this lovely patriotic camera on Etsy dot com. http://www.etsy.com/listing/70248397...-in-box?ref=mt. Just what I should be using, with my Ukrainian blood.

    Careful; It's in Russia, and shipping to the U.S.A. is over $20! Not sure if this setup is really worth $90 shipped.

    That's quite a lens cap.

    Hmmm. Wonder if that's the camera used to remove comrades from "official" photos...

    Yep, it is a spray-painted Zorki-4, but what interests me is the FED Industar-61 lens (not original to the camera) mounted to it. Most early I-61 have black focus ring and black aperture ring (the so-called "Panda" version). This one has a silver aperture ring. I have a similar lens and had felt that mine might have been assembled from the parts bin from a mix of I-61 and I-26 components. Now I am not that sure.

    My aunt was Ukranian. They left their native country many years ago, but her father was an engineer who did some great feat of engineering which earned him the Order of Lenin medal. She gave it to me! So, I don't have the camera, but I do have a genuine Order of Lenin medal!
