I inherited the Zenit ET from my father. This faithful camera has been recording my life for almost 30 years now.
When I was a little girl, my father used to take photos all the time. He also developed films and made prints by himself. I am really grateful to my father and the Zenit ET for capturing the most beautiful moments of my childhood. When I grew up, sometimes my father let me and my boyfriend (now husband) borrow his Zenit ET. We always had to swear that we'll be very careful. I am glad that we were.
When I turned 24, my father gave me his Zenit ET for my birthday. I started using it when I turned 28 although I still don't understand why on earth it took me so long to use the camera.
The Zenit ET was my first camera and my first teacher. I learned everything the hard way. Mistakes and disappointments visited me quite often but on the other hand, it was an adventurous journey. Zenit ET took me where I am now — I can't imagine my life without photography. It was produced between 1982 and 1993 with a quantity of 3,000,000. They were supplied with a Helios 44-2 lens.
