  • Description

    If a Soviet Zenith-E camera should ever come into your hands you should know that it was assembled by girls of a small town called Krasnogorsk not far from Moscow.

    These girls have a very delicate operation to perform. The Zenith-E has more than five hundreds separate parts, and the construction of certain units is about twice as intricate as the movement of a watch. Experience has shown that it is easier for girls to do this work than for men.

    A single-cast body comes onto the conveyer. This is an invention of the factory's designers and they hold a patent for its production.

    The assembly is performed in 21 operations...

    The most important advantage of the Zenith-E is its permanent--sight view finder. You can see the view you are taking all the time through the eye of the camera.

    Their is an exposure meter built into the body of the camera.

    All you have to know is the sensitivity of the film and the aperture and exposure set themselves automatically. The camera also has a fixture for a flash lamp.

    The complete outfit of the Zenith-E has eleven objectives.

    Two minutes' work by the girl on the Krasnogorsk factory's assembly line gives a complete Zenith-E, the camera that will delight the most exacting photographer.
