52 Cameras: Week 30 part 2 — Zenit TTL

I like this camera. I’m going to try to find the Helios 44M lens. The 44-2 is really sharp but I kept forgetting to turn the stop-down ring before hitting the shutter button. I lost a few photos because I took them at f/2 and they’re irretrievably overexposed. The 44-2 can go on another Zenit that has a broken stop-down ring.

I haven’t gotten the meter working yet. The corrosion travelled up the wire so it’s going to take a disassembly of the top, rewiring, and maybe a new CdS cell.

I got into a time crunch (as usual) so I had Walgreens process and make a CD. The scans are lower resolution and have a bit of noise but they’re enough to work with for web-sized images.
