    Zenit E: The Sturdy Metal Heart of Russian Photography

    The Zenit E, one of Russia's first and finest! The well-known Russian tank, a camera with a cold, metal heart. You have got your hands on one of these fine babies but how do you load/unload your film, what lenses do you need, or does it even work properly?! I hope most of you will know how to get along with their Russian friend after reading this guide!

    Zenit E: All it's Cracked Up to Be

    The Zenit E with the standard Helios lens lives up to it's reputation as not only a great camera, but also a technical nightmare.

    Zenit E: Shutter Curtain Repairs

    Getting half overexposed or simply way overexposed film back from the lab? It's time for an inspection, your Zenit is most likely suffering from old age!

    Zenit E: Cut-Price Cold War Classic

    The Zenit E is a 1960s survivor; short on features, but solid and tough in a way only Russian cameras can be. Cheap, cheerful, and made in the millions, it's an often-overlooked camera deserving a re-appraisal. Quantity has a quality of its own, after all.

    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.

    Zenit E: A Beast from the East

    The Zenit E is a mass produced, USSR-made 35mm SLR camera. Big, cumbersome, and built like a tank, this Zenit has a huge array of lenses and accessories and can be used for any kind of photography, even street photography, despite the thunderous shutter sound.

    Zenit E, The Training Vessel of Photography

    This camera weighs as much as a steam iron, it is completely manual (you must manually close the diaphragm before taking a photo). An SLR without frills, and a wonderful "training vessel" for the beginners!

  • The Zenit E

    The Zenit E

    The very best thing about the Zenit E can be summed up in one word – Versatility – well, that or weight (and either way get your head out of the gutter boys). So it is heavy as heck, which is great for urban exploring as you can use it as a pretty bitchin weapon if the need arises. Aside from that it has all the bells and whistles, as much as any old Russian has bells and whistles. Aperture setting, B setting, shutter speed, manual focus but the best thing is that the SLR lets you look at your picture as you take it, like a 1970s digital almost, what you see is what you are gonna get, except in 1-2 weeks instead of 1-2 seconds, anyways I digress. As you can see with my gallery this allows you to get the macro distance correct every time for sharp close-ups, oh thank the lord! Works well with black and white, slide, redscale, or just your standard color 35mm. You can also work it for a crisp overall look or get super wacky field of vision with the blurry back and the sharp central image. You can even go ahead and throw on the Holga filters for fun, do what you do, the Zenit E allows you.

    My Lomo Story

    My friendship with Lomography was a very logical step in my life. It could have started earlier, but luckily it began just in time. All my life I was very interested in old stuff. Old pictures in my grandparents' album interested me more than new technologies with the digital photography ahead. After school I joined Vilnius University, to take my Bachelor's Degree in Archival Science, when one day, we had a trip to the audiovisual archive of Lithuania. I was so touched with all these old photos - they made a deep impression that I decided to try to do some "retro" pictures by myself.

    Ilford FP4+: For Me, Ilford's Best

    Ilford makes some of the very best black and white films. As I am a huge fan of 100 ISO film. I use Ilford FP4+ often and for me, it is the company's best film and one that you should all definitely try out. It works great in any camera, and when combined with great Russian lenses, produces fantastic images.
