I can't help you with a confirmed identification - but with the lever-wind and solid back is it possible that he's using something like a Nicca 3F?

(edit: wait, no, that can't be right - the knob around the winding lever, as well as the protrusion on the left side of the camera, both look unlike the Nicca)


Here's a screenshot from the video:

A screencap of the camera. The advance lever is certainly un-leica. It looks kind of like a Zorki 6 actually. Edit: take a look at the back of a Zorki: http://www.leitzmuseum.org/CameraMak...Zorki-6-6.html

Either Zorki-5 or 6, if they indeed are his hands.
He visited Soviet Union at least once, maybe he was asked to try it out?

It looks like a Zorki 5 camera.

HCB visited the USSR in 1954. So there must have been some other reason he was checking out a Zorki 5. I kind of wonder what impression it left on him.

Snap!

The message I had entered was too short. I lengthen my message to at least 10 characters and now all is well with the world.
