There are three types of the Zenit 122 Russian camera. My review is about the Zenit 122K model.
This is my lovely Zenit 122. It is a Russian SLR cam. After I bought my Diana+ I was so addicted in analog photography that i was looking for a new one. I didn’t want to spend too much money so I looked through all the cams they had in the Lomoshop, and there I found this lovely cam Zenit 122 The price for this wonderful SLR cam is very low, if you look at the beautiful pictures which you can get with this cam, you will never be sorry of it. This cam was build in the 80s in the soviet union….my one comes from the Lomoshop. ;-)
This cam is not to use like an Actionsampler or to do the legendary Hip-Shot. No, with this cam should bring some time with you. With some patience, you should get some wonderful pictures. The Zenit also works good if you like to do macro shots like Flowers or Insects. The Zenit has an automatic Light meter which helps you to find the right ISO norm to get the best results. So go and buy one, and don’t forget to have fun!
I live in the North of Italy, near the border with Switzerland. I love to cycle in Swiss territory, because their car traffic is lower than in Italy and because there are nice bicycle paths free of cars and motorbikes. In this article I'll show you a nice three-day bicycle path that I cycled last summer. Take a look after the jump!
