Hello: Thank you for the great reference. I have a Jupiter 8 lens variant which is not in your list. It is a late PT3110 from a Zorki 4k with 7 digit serial number 7633192. The name marking is in Cyrillic characters, scale markings are in green. There is no "MADE IN USSR" markings on body. I can send you a photo if you like. Hannes

The Fotokor-1 are built for a very robust usage. It's true,that they are not totally at the state of the best german cameras. Indeed - my two Fotokors were more or less working, when I got them, while they were in a very sad looking outer state. I've seen famous german cameras, which were in a much better looking state - but with totally stuck mechanics. But the bellows of the Fotokor is of a pretty formidable hardiness. One of them was grey, white and totally moldy, really a health risk in that state. I thought of throwing him away, but gave him a chance. At first I washed the leather side intensively under the water tap, dried him, washed the inner side somewhat less aggressive, dried it - it was still smelling moldy. After appending 30% vinegar and drying this smell was gone, and then I used a lot of leather care. The bellows is surviving, he's black without further coloring, is in a very good fashion, and has obviously no light leak. Believe it or not - I was also not believing such a success before this crazy procedure. I wouldn't dare to append 5% of such a procedure on another bellows. I've seen some bellows, for which I had to use even leather oil with ultralarge care just to avoid further damage.

Im owning two Fotokor-1, a PK0245(9150** with Ortagoz 9667**) and a PK0235(6640** with Ortagoz 6744**). The stops on both were bad, so I wanted to repare them and had less success: Some blades were broken, and one shutterblade of the 245 also - the very unusual material for them is celluloid - like non safety films - tending to be brittle and to selfignition increasingly with the years. Burning match - parts are immediately burned down. Too, the GOMZ shutter housing / lens mounts are internally very different for the two lenses (looks like war restrictions for the 245) - housings are very different to open. The 6744** with 4 housing threads, the 9667** 3). You should store the Fotokor at 30°C or lower, avoid it to put them in a fire dangerous area!

When You get a old camera, I hope, You check, if there should be an old film in it, and get it processed! Just take a look at my website - the site is ONLY in danish - I'm sorry...

nice ! body marked B CCCP no 6023537.Shutter blocked/out of order probably for having change time before rotating the shutter knob. What can I do? Someone can give me a simple instruction (not technical) to adjust it ? Thanks so much.

Very nice webpage! I have got a Vilia Auto from my mom. She bought it in Moscow in 1980. After some repairs, it is still in perfect shape. I love it!
