Zenit 35F is a simple 35mm compact camera with 3 iso settings and a fixed shutter speed. It’s armed with the legendary Minitar 1 lens – the same lens which the Lomo LC-A has.
Zenit 35F is a vintage Russian camera which has the legendary Minitar 1 lens, it has a 35mm focal length with a f5.6 aperture. The camera has a single shutter speed of 1/125s and 3 iso settings 100, 200 & 400iso.
Switching the iso on the camera actually changes the aperture of the lens. f5.6 for iso 100, f8 for iso 200 and f16 for iso 400. There is an underexposure led light in the view finder to warn the picture taker and a built-in flash both powered by 2 AA size battery. Flash light can be manually switches on/off by the user.
The black Zenit 35F is the most common type among all. A black one with a decal for the logo is uncommon and the red one is rare and hard to find.

As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.

In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
