The Zorki 3 cameras are among the hardest Russian Leica copies to find. Zorki-3 and Zorki-3M cameras were the first to combine the rangefinder and viewfinder in one eyepiece. All Zorki-3 models (Zorki-3, Zorki-3M and Zorki-3C) have diopter adjustment for eyeglass wearers. They have a top shutter speed of 1/1000 sec. They have cast bodies and the entire back comes off to simplify loading. 1954 models have a foot, like the Kiev rangefinders, this was discarded by 1955.
