The scene near New Norfolk in Tasmania’s Derwent Valley during Winter 2012 one Sunday afternoon. Captured with Zenit 3-M and 58mm Helios lens.
The 58mm f/2 Helios 44 lens was made by KMZ in the former USSR over a number of years in many variants, and is a close optical reproduction of the classic Carl Zeiss 58mm Biotar f/2 (of which I also have an example). The example used is an early M39 screwmount variant attached to the Zenit 3-M 35mm SLR when I bought it from a local market. This scene is from the first roll of film I have put through the Zenit, which has challenged some of my pre-conceptions about Soviet equipment by performing remarkably well.
Camera: Zenit 3-M 35mm single lens reflex
Lens: Helios 44 58mm f/2 (M39 mount)
