Zenit 122

this is the 3rd shot of my camera series. What i was trying doing was to try and shot low light shots with no flash and just mess around with the settings on the camera (the settings are in the exif)
my 2 previous uploads were part of this project as well i ment to put them up for critique but i used the multi upload option and forgot to click the button "ho well learn by your mistakes"
thanks for taking time to look and comment.

Nice focusing and pleasing composition,

The red background is a suitable tribute to this camera's origin.

A Soviet tank rather.

I think they were near 1Kg heavy with lens, not the best friend hanging from the neck.

Does it still work?

Keep shooting!

I had one of these (Not this particular model) for testing and found it very heavy and the lens was not automatic, ie when you closed the shutter the viewfinder image went dark.

The quality of picture made these popular with those who couldn't afford the entry level models like Pentax S1a. Being Russian they were heavy cumbersome and unattractive to look at but as you say 'it still works'.

With your picture, I would have liked to have seen all of the camera in sharp focus and a bit more space allowed all round, but at the base in particular. f4.5 needed to be perhaps f11, no exposure compensation and most of all a tripod. the colour scheme, I like.

Wow, this is a historical thing now ... I think that now it is difficult to to find such the camera.
