Smile Zorki insurance offer!

Well that's what it looks like...I wonder what replacement value they would place on such a camera?

Or is she just about to chuck it over the precipitous cliff behind?

Still, they'd have a problem rejecting one, wouldn't they?

If I point the Z-4 to the sun as it's shown in the picture would I get a free curtain replacement?

An Android phone and a Zorki. Pretty weird. I guess you would have to pair an iPhone with a Leica, though.

Should be using a Kiev. At least the metal shutter could be used as a hotplate.

Who comes up with this stuff?

Hi,

But think of the cross breed you'd get from them...

I don't know about wifi but all Soviet devices came with built-in secret microphones.

Interesting to note though, that a smartphone or a tablet quickly becomes outdated, but apparently, a Zorki -after nearly 50 years of active service- is always capable of taking good pictures, not depending on bizarre batteries or apps, etc.

P.S. quoting from greyelm: "I don't know about wifi but all Soviet devices came with built-in secret microphones.": I'm trying to imagine all those pensioned KGB veterans, still listening and recording our conversations, then typing reports to be sent to the ghost of Mr. Andropov...
