Russian Winters - Flash Rumble!

The big chill is setting in here in Europe. The bears and squirrels are preparing for hibernation, but we know that all you Lomographers are not scared of the winter! And there are no better cameras to have as your trusty companion through the long winter months than good old Russian deadstock clickers.

    You say "just make sure it’s one of the deadstock cameras", so why can't we use Orion? Smena 8m? other Russian dead stock cameras (not mentioned in the list)?
