A Leica on a shoestring. A classy Russian gentleman. The perfect travel companion. Zorki is everything you've ever wanted and more.
I buy a lot of cameras. It’s a habit. It’s an addiction. I have to say, I’ve never been as enamored with a 35mm camera as I have been with the Zorki 4.
Zorki isn’t easy. It’s fully manual, fully mechanical, and no light meters or batteries for anything. In other words it’s perfect!
If you don’t know anything about manual controls, just check out the sunny 16 rule and experiment from there. Easy as pie. As far as rangefinders go, the Zorki 4 is not only close aesthetically to the Leica camera it was copying, but it is also comparable in image quality too! (Don’t listen to the Leica enthusiasts who deny this, just see for yourself).
I brought this camera around while traveling because i wanted sweet but not too crazy travel photos. I couldn’t have been more happy. The camera feels great in your hands, and you always get people asking you how much you paid and where to get it and all that. Plus, if you’re lucky enough to get one with strap lugs it’s makes carrying it around a breeze. Although if you have the older one without strap lugs but a sweet brown leather case, it might hurt your neck a little more, but everyone will think you’re wearing a camera from Indiana Jones or something.
Zorki is an amazing camera and a great conversational piece to boot, give it a shot!

My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
