THE GOLD MEDAL
AT THE 1965
LEIPZIG WORLD FAIR
The wide-known family of "Zorki" cameras has been
refilled with a new model -- "Zorki-10" camera. Unlike its
earlier models, the "Zorki-10" camera is a fully automatic
camera with automatic exposure settings. This considerably
simplifies the shooting process. The fact that the range-
finder is coupled with the viewfinder allows to make fast
focusing. Between the lens diaphragm shutter with adder-
mechanism automatically sets diaphragm and exposure
time depending on the set film sensitivity and brightness of
the object to be photographed. Before proceeding to take
pictures, thoroughly study the operation of the camera and
its handling instructions presented in this Manual.
Remember, that the automatic setting lever should always
be set against the index "A", except cases when
photographing with exposure time "B". Set the self-timer
lever only after the shutter is cocked. Always press the
shutter release key until it goes.
SPECIFICATION OF THE CAMERA
The "Zorki-10" camera has fully automatic exposure settings and is designed for
using the 35-mm perforated film having 24x36 mm picture sizes. The camera is fitted
with a high-precision "Industar-63" lens, which is built-in in the between the lens
Focal length of the lens -- 45 mm
Relative aperture -- 1:2.8
Angular field -- 50°
The lens is focussed by moving the whole of the unit with the aid of a focusing ring.
The camera is equipped with a rangefinder (base 38 mm and viewfinder magnification
The optical viewfinder and the rangefinder are coupled in one window. The
collimator viewfinder has fluorescent frames, limiting the field of view. To eliminate
parallax while photographing at a distance of 1.5 m (5 ft.) there is an additional frame,
shifted to the right and downwards. To signalize of insufficient illumination of the
object to be photographed there is a red line in the viewfinder field of view on which
the exposure meter pointer, seen in the field of view, stays.
