KMZ Zenit 3
The Zenit 3 is the third model in the Zenit line, and it was produced from 1960-1962. The camera saw a change in the top housing, as it was now a single metal piece with the camera name engraved on the front in Cyrillic script. The Zenit means "Zenith" when translated.
The trademark logo of KMZ is a trapezoidal prism, typically with a refracted ray of light that becomes an arrow as it exits the prism (see logo to the left of the viewfinder in the photo above). The trademark is found on both bodies and lenses. The Zenit 3 features a solid metal construction, and was expensive to manufacture. This may be the reason behind the two year production run of the Zenit 3.
The Zenit 3 features a lever advance instead of a winding knob as used on previous models. The film is loaded at the bottom of the camera. This particular Zenit 3 camera is being sold with a Industar 50mm f3.5 lens, and a Helios 44 58mm f2 lens. The camera has also been painted with a custom blue finish by a previous owner. A neat vintage camera with a custom touch!

Vintage Camera Finds
This Linhof Technika is a 1930s-40s era press camera. It comes with a Carl Zeiss 100mm f2.8 Planar lens. Cosmetically the camera is really nice, but it does have some issues with the shutter and rangefinder.
This Graflex Crown Graphic is a 4x5 large format camera. It is from the late 1950s. Another cosmetically nice camera, but it is being sold as is due to cracking in the rangefinder housing.
This classic Rollei 3.5 T twin lens reflex camera features a gray leather finish, and is cosmetically nice overall. It is being sold as is because the film winding system is not working properly.
This Yashica Electro 35 is a rangefinder camera from the 1960s era. It comes with a Yashica case, and shows normal signs of use. It is being sold as is due to the shutter speeds being off.
