I will definitely nòt be "guessing the light" in Siberia with this beautiful aluminum фотоэкспонометр. 
Early sixties (or late fifties?) and at Цена 1 руб. 35 коп. (About 4 rolls of film, the Ленинград-2 was 6 руб. but that was in the eighties.)
Easy to handle with gloves, too.

 Yes, I am the proud owner of a working ± 1941 Fotokor. And would love to take it to Siberia.  But with only 4 sheet-holders (digitalics: that means only 4 pictures!) it probably isn't the right choice.
 К сожалению!

Линхоф 220

This will definitely be in my рюкзак: the Linhof 220. No fiddling around with tiny knobs: only big handles, and the Rodenstock lens is só good.
I bought mine june 1977, still works fine today.

One decision made, 237 to go.
