Zorki, FED etc blinds

Hi,

As KMZ make both the Zorki RF's and the Zenit SLR's I can guess the shutter blinds are the same.

But will a Zorki/Zenit set of shutter blinds fit a FED RF?

I'm asking because I often see old Zenit cameras being sold for pennies and I wonder if they are a useful source of shutter blinds and so on (small screws etc).

Regards, David

No, Zorki and Zenit sutter blinds are not the same. Zenit has it narrower.
But it worked on FED-2. Anyway all of them are too old to be worth of rehaul. Just get new shutter cloth.

Thanks, guess there's no reason to worry about all those old Zenits going to waste.

Regards, David
