ZENIT 3M Russian SLR Camera With Industar-50

ZENIT 3M Russian SLR Camera  With Industar-50 Rm250

This camera was the succesor to the ill fated Kristall. The Kristall camera got a hinged back like all modern camera we know. Unfortunatly nobody liked the design of the Kristall which had hammered paint and ridges on the top of prism. Some people called it tractorlike. So Kristall stayed only in production for a year and then was replaced by the Zenit-3M. In comparing it to the Zenit-3, it is more modern. Hinged back instead of the bottomloader. It is smaller than the 3. But its specs are identical.
