Russian cameras


Arrived today: 1980 Kiev. I don't think the big chunky Salyut is the right one for the Siberian winter, I will stick (or freeze) to small FEDs, Elikons etc. because they can be kept warm in my pocket.
 My first real camera was also Russian: the now famous Lyubytel (=amateur). I still have the box (and a more recent Lubitel 166B). A great "teacher". (In the sixties I made real art with that, as you can see.)
