The first of my street shooters arrived from Ukraine. Igor came through. The second time I fired it the shutter wouldn't release. With a little coaxing it finally started firing and seems to be working OK. It's hard to say about the speeds, though. Holding the camera up to the light and firing it seemed OK for all speeds but 1/500th. It didn't seem to be letting any light through at all. The film will tell. It is a 44 year old camera and should have a CLA (clean, lube, and adjust) but that will have to wait.
I shot some today and the camera is a joy to use. The black paint is coming off in spots. I had hoped to get away with a touch-up but I can see that the black will have to be repainted. The nylon cover is in good shape but it's a nylon cover and will eventually be replaced by leather. The top is very clean. The lens is worn, but I knew that. The Jupiter 8 is a very good lens but I think this one is going to be a sacrificial lens. I will use it to learn how to CLA a lens. The lens I plan to put on this camera should arrive in a few days. It's a late black Jupiter 12 35mm wide-angle lens. Also an excellent lens. I will finish out the roll tomorrow and get it processed. Then I will see if the shutter leaks and if the speeds are close. I'ts really fun shooting with this camera. Did I already say that? I probably will again.
Here is a Zorki 5 (Similar to my Zorki 6) that has been repainted and had the nylon replaced with leatherett. Very tasty.
