Old School Photo Tools - Ep. 2

I posted a picture of the LOMO LUBITEL (an old russian TLR camera) a few months back.

Well, here are some more nice old photo tools (courtesy of my wife's uncle):

The Japanese YASHICA PARTNER AF, a compact 35 mm camera with auto-focus and auto-exposure (was produced from 1984 to 1986).

The old Russian SMENA SYMBOL, a very popular 35 mm camera model from LOMO (which was produced from 1973 to 1993)

Third comes "la piece de resistance", the very popular Russian ZENIT ET, a veritable 35 mm SLR camera with inter-changeable lens (was produced between 1981 and 1982 at KMZ and between 1985 and 1990 by Belomo).
(BTW, according to, this model was produced in more than 3 milion units)

And last (but not least), a very old magnifying table to develop 35 mm film onto bigger print-outs. Now those were times when you had to really, really work to get a good photo out...
