  • The camera body: a Zenit ES (a Zenit E with an extra shutter release in the base)
  • Helios-44 58mm f/2 lens
  • Tair-3AS 300mm f/4.5 lens, a modified version of the Tair-3, with a focus control added on the underside.


The Zenit E was a Russian-built SLR camera body for M42 screw lenses, made from 1965-1968.

The camera offered only shutter speeds of 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250 and 1/500, plus 'B' for longer exposures. The distance scale was drawn against the calculator scale, showing the acceptable tolerance, depending on aperture.

The Zenit E requires the user to manually stop down the diaphragm before exposure; the lens has an extra ring for this purpose.

It had a selenium meter. The meter's photo cell was placed above the lens mount behind a protecting window, and its instrument was placed beside a two-slice analog exposure calculator. A ring in the meter was coupled to that calculator on which the film speed had to be preselected, and when the meter's needle matched the ring the calculator showed the correct shutter-speed/aperture combinations. This device was not connected to the actual speed/aperture controls.
