Voskhod

With the Zorki-10, the Narciss, the Drug and the Iskra, the Voskhod is one of those cameras that prove that the Soviet-Russian camera industry was capable of more than just producing bulky, crude Leica copies. Very un-Zorki-like, the Voskhod has a grace and elegance not often seen in cameras from the former Soviet Union, and some design and technical features which were unique for its time [2].

PK5505. One of very few existing Voskhod prototypes was found in A.Shekleyn (Aндрей Шеклейн) article about Lomo Zavod history (Foto-magazin No. 3, 2005).

6-digts serial number with date prefix "61" (i.e. 1961) engraved on an accessory shoe. Shutter with speeds: 1/30s - 1/250s (!) Prototype lens "T-47" 2.8/45, instead of usual "T-48" 2.8/45 (!) Aperture numbers from f/2.8 to f/16. White body coverings. Serial number #620001 on the lens! No visible screws on the camera's frontplate. Different design of the bottom plate. The nameplate in Cyrillic characters. An old GOMZ logotype on the lens frontplate. An ultra rare to find nowadays.

PK5510. The particular preseries version of the Voskhod camera was announced in 1964 (Sovetkoe Foto magazine No. 9). Another sample is known to exist with slightly different bottom plate. Shutter with speeds: 1s - 1/250s already. Standard "T-48" 2.8/45 lens. Aperture numbers from f/2.8 to f/22. No visible screws on the camera's frontplate. The nameplate in Cyrillic characters. An old "GOMZ" logotype on the lens frontplate. These very few preseries cameras were intended to have selftimer on the body (selftimer lever is visible below the shutter release knob). An ultra rare to find nowadays.

PK5513. Seems to be the last type of the preseries Voskhod camera.  Very few samples released in 1963. Almost identical to regular Voskhod camera (see PK5515 below), but with a lot of small differencies, such as design of the lens, rewind arrow position, etc. An old "GOMZ" logotype on the lens frontplate. The particular version comes without XM and selftimer switcher on body. An ultra rare to find nowadays.

 

PK5513 - Voskhod preseries camera  #630329.

 

  

PK5515. 1st productional version of unique Voskhod camera. Very uncommon LOOMP logotype on the lens frontplate. No visible screws on the camera's frontplate (see camera #651130 opposite). Happened to see samples with bronze-coloured shutter/lens frontplate.

 

PK5515 - Voskhod  #651130.

 

  

PK5520. An early uncommon version of Voskhod camera. No visible screws on the camera's frontplate yet (see picture below). The standard LOMO logotype already.

 

PK5520 - Voskhod  #654943.

 

  

PK5523. Quite common version to find. 4 screws are already visible in the corners of the shutter's frontplate (see picture below). Seems to be the last one with 2 screws visible below the viewfinder, then the rear door is opened (see PK5525 below).

 

PK5523 - Voskhod  #657318.

 

  

PK5525. Camera identical to PK5523, but without 2 screws below the viewfinder already (see picture below). Some cameras bearing engraved markings "SDELANO B CCCP" or "Made in USSR" on the bottom plate. Released in 1966-1968. The latest so far known camera has s/n #6824637 (SovietCams).

 

PK5525 - Voskhod  #667477.

 

  

PK5530. An export version of particular camera. Markings in Roman characters. "Made in USSR" enagravings on the bottom plate (see picture below). Otherwise identical to PK5525 (see camera #671157).

 

PK5530 - Voskhod   #671157.

 

  

PK5535. Less common to find version of the particular camera. Identical to PK5525, but with XM synchro  switch added (see red arrow in the picture opposite)! Released in late 1968 only. "SDELANO B CCCP" engravings on the bottom plate. Tripod thread - 1/4'' (starting from late 1967).

 

PK5535 - Voskhod camera.

 

  

PK5540. An extremely rare to find export version of the particular camera. Identical to PK5535 and with synchro switch again. Slightly changed metric scale and other markings. Released in late 1968 only. "MADE IN USSR" engravings on the bottom plate. Tripod thread - 1/4''.

 

PK5540 - Voskhod  #6811680.

 

  

PK5545. Camera identical to PK5535, but with serial number starting from #000001... The reason for serial numbers changing is not clear yet, but in my opinion, LOMO have used already prepared Voskhod-3 bodies, since Voskhod-3 itself was not approved for mass production. An earliest so far known camera has s/n #000048 (SovietCams). Very few cameras released in 1969.

 

PK5545 - Voskhod  #000048.

 

  

PK5550. Camera identical to PK5545, but without XM synchro switch again. An earliest known camera has s/n #000116 (A.Puchkov coll.).

Camera #000116 opposite from Alexey Puchkov (Russia) collection.

 

PK5550 - Voskhod  #000116.
