Zorki-3C

The KMZ designers lengthened the viewfinder housing, as they did with the earlier "Zorki-C" and "Zorki-2C" models and the sexy looking Zorki-3 turned ugly. The Zorki-3C actually signals the beginning of a new model line. The only difference between it and the early Zorki-4A is the 4A has a self timer [2].
