Week 113 - Zenit-C

According to the serial number, this camera was made in 1959, so it's the same age as me! One of the earlier (though not the first) of the long running Zenit range of SLRs. This one uses the 39mm screw mount, later models used 42mm. This example is unusual in being blue in colour. It seems to work, but previous experience with old Russian SLRs has shown that the shutter curtains do not always run smoothly, even if they sound OK, so it won't be until I develop the film that I'll know if there is a problem.
