Reflex camera of the high class. These cameras were produced by factory "KMZ" (Krasnogorsk) since 1958 to 1964.

The Start is a reflex camerawhich I must say a very heavy piece of metal (1Kg.), also it has a good and fluid transmission lever. The objective or the lens that comes with it is a very bright Helios 44 (58mm. f-2) and it is very shiny with field of view that allows to realize perfect frames.

A characteristic of this camera is to take pictures very near to the ground without the picture-taker having tobe to bend just to see through the viewfinder. Infact it is possible to remove the pentaprism and control the frame from the top.

Frame size 24X36mm, Curtain-type shutter.

Lenses: Helios-44 with special bayonet

Adjustable shutter speeds:
1, 1/2, 1/5, 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1000 of a second and “B” [before 1959].
1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1000 of a second and “B” [after 1959].

The set includes : Case, adapter for M39, pentaprism, pit checker, manual instruction, box.

Very good camera!
