PK7007. Prototype identical to PK7005, but with single "103" markings on the top (see picture below). Big "LOMO" markings on the rear plate. Serial number engraved inside the body. Lens fastening knob on the frontplate is more natty now. An only so far known camera has s/n #800087 (SovietCams).

PK7010. Short-run preseries camera identical to PK7007, but under name "Almaz-103" already. "Almaz" markings stamped on body above the lens already. Still old style of film memo disk (see picture below). Less than 50 copies released in 1980. An earliest so far known camera has s/n #800035 (private coll.).

 

PK7015 - Almaz-103  #800093.

 

  

PK7015. Very few cameras released in 1982-1983. Seems to be the 1st productional version of Almaz-103 camera. Less natty type in comparison with early Almaz-103 cameras. No more "Almaz" markings on body. Film memo disk is totally black now, changed design of the shutter release knob. Yellow-white "LOMO" markings on the rear plate (see picture below). An earliest so far known camera has s/n #820058 (SovietCams).

PK7030. Camera identical to PK7020, but with regular "Lomo" logotype on the rear plate already. "Almaz" markings on camera's body yet. It's interesting to say, that two Almaz-103 cameras #8300020 (see PK7025 above) and #8300021 are true sisters by serial number indeed (see picture below), but both representing different types ...

PK7045. Camera identical to PK7040, but with both top plate and bottom plate, painted in special "Chameleon type" colour. Usually you need to use a flash to see this (see picture below). Seems to be the last type with 2 synchro contacts on body.

PK7050. Seems to be the last version of Almaz-103 camera. Only one synchro contact on the frontplate. Special "Chameleon type" painting again, but now even prism and shutter housing is painted. The picture below was taken using built-in flash.
