Sokol-2

The only difference this camera appears to have from the Sokol-1 is the addition of a hot shoe and deletion of flash receptacles. This camera was manufactured from 1977. The case for this camera is made of black or brown leather with a plastic lens cover that has LOMO in raised letters. There is a rare version with the "Mark of best quality" on a little plate inset into the top next to the cable release. (source: http://www.commiecameras.com/sov/electroniccameras/index.htm)
