I just got a Zorki 1 (C) export version with Jupiter 8 lens and matching
leather case for the bigger lens.
According to sovietcams.com its a PM1080, the export version of the PM1075.
Thre is also the note that some of them have been equiupped with the
Jupiter 8 and a special leather case, starting with #174735.
fotoua.com lists it as Type 7b CT691 1952-54
(#125889 - #310527)
Mine has serial 219762, so probably 1953. The lens is from 1955.
Nothing special till now, but:
It has strap lugs, none of the 1(c) had them as far as I know.
It also has a flash socket on the front of the body and not on the to cover where later Zorkis had it. The leather case has been modified for the flash socket too.
I found this flash socket on 2 more Zorki 1 models currently for sale in Austria.
Zorki 1(c) export #220994
Zorki 1(d) export with #420520
Any Zorki experts out here?
What do you think about the strap lugs?
Are there any numbers how many Zorki 1 have been made with flash socket?
There is still a roll of film in the camera, I'll try to finish it and see what comes out. Then I have to find the little screw for the rangefinder adjustment hole.
