Just received it as a gift from my grandfather. It's fully working. How jealous are you? Or am I being just an ass and it's a craptastic camera? Discuss.

They can be killed. The shutter is prone to failure.
The entire camera is made of thick radioactive Soviet steel made to deflect bullets and survive car crashes, every gear is the size of a niggers rim, every rod is larger then a Pakistani sounding tube but the shutter is pulled by two 0,5cm single ply ribbons.

>The entire camera is made of thick radioactive Soviet steel

Only parts of year 1962-1967 is radioactive, because early Soviet experimentation in particle metallurgy.
But there was not effecting of slow film unless stored inside camera for long period.
*Do not keep camera of this year under armpit for long period, or swelling of lymph gland may occur and you will become dead from cancer*

>made to deflect bullets and survive car crashes
It was not specification of design to be made this way.

>the shutter is pulled by two 0,5cm single ply ribbons.
This is for good reason.

In American, measure of reliability is period of equipment operation before first need of repair. But everything become broken soon.
And once failure of component, it must send back to factory for repair. Or to mechanic of camera Oleg.

Is there factory inside of camera case? Is there mechanic of camera Oleg, perch on your shoulder like great owl waiting for failure of shutter mechanism?
No there is not.
But there is spare ribbon and screwdriver so you can fix quickly and continue with work.

I have the black Zenit E 1980 Olympic edition with a Helios 58mm f/2 lens. I bought this in exc condition, with the original case for $9.99.

So to answer your question...
> How jealous are you?

The answer is no.

Comrade pls

(OP it's a Zenit E, they aren't worth anything but it's a camera therefore you are required to load in a roll and shoot with it. If it has the 58/2 they all came with those are a Zeiss Biogon clone and aren't too bad at all)

this is why you should opt for a praktica ltl, built just as well, but with metal shutter, and 1/1000 shutterspeed. shitty meter though but what do you expect

Blame Germans for that, the shutter is a clone of Leica II's.

It's THE most mass-produced film SLR in history, and it's about as basic and crude as film SLRs get. Of course, it can still take good photos, as all it needs to be for that is light tight, but since you can get a much better camera for the price of several film rolls, I don't see many reasons to use it.

Granddad cameras are no fucking joke mate. I have my granddads pentax and love it to bits. It's broke a couple of times, I was able to fix it for a while but something seized up in the shutter release mechanism and I need to send it off for repair. I still use the takumar lens on my dslrs though. Run some film through it and take family portraits with it.

I have two zenit-e and two zenit em bodies left to me by my family members - they're what i learned my photography with.
They haven't broken in years, needed repairs or other attention despite being used extensively in adverse conditions...
Slap together a collection of vatious lenses, play and enjoy the fuck out of it OP! It may well outlast you if you care for it.
The best camera in the world is the one which happens to be in your hand when you want to take a photo.
