Reviews
Posted by Bengt Köhler Sandberg 2012-05-31

Zenit-E

Technical info

-All mechanical shutter:
1/500s to 1s and Bulb

-Flash sync (1/30 sec)

-Self-timer


-Light meter


Viewfinder:

Good size and light but it don't have any focus aid at all.
But I haven't had any problems to focus even in low light.


Build quality:

Like a rock.


Lenses:

Uses M42 screw mount.
You can find hole range of old nice lenses for this.



Conclusion:

Great camera!
Very simple but built like a tank and will probably never fail you.
The viewfinder is great but don't have any focus aid but that is somthing I haven't had any problems with.
This also have a light meter but this is not in the viewfinder and you find a very easy to use lever at the left side of the camera.

Thumbs up:
All mechanical shutter
Reliable
Big and bright viewfinder

Thumbs down:
Quite heavy
No focus aid in the viewfinder
No mirror lock
