    Awesome! I recently got the Moskva-5 model, and besides an expensive repair I had to pay, it's a rock-solid machine with impressive spec. Keep the frame counter windows closed, they can easily fog your film (the sample is yet to be scanned).

    @adash I paid 63 euros including shipment from Russia. Even the slow shutter speeds are accurate. Most of my 50 year old leaf shutter are not accurate when it comes down to slow speeds, some aren't accurate at any speed :). This camera is what the Belair should have been. But I am afraid you can not make this camera nowadays for a decent price.

    You've been lucky - mine was $110 shipping included, and I had to pay EUR25 more to a local repairman for shutter and focusing repair. Will post samples soon :-D

    BTW, I totally agree on the Belair - it's so low spec that every foldable medium format camera from 50 years ago makes it ridiculous...
