The Zorki-4K is a 1970s Soviet-era 35mm film rangefinder camera. While KMZ did produce a Zorki-5 and a Zorki-6, the Zorki-4K body is actually the latest camera in the line, with a total of 524.610 cameras produced from 1972 to 1978. Latin Zorki-4K = Cyrillic Зоркий-4K and means Sharp Sight.
The Zorki-4K is basically a Zorki-4 with the addition of a fixed take-up spool and a film advance lever instead of the knurled knob. The KMZ logo was moved to the left so it would not be covered by the advance lever and leave room for a rubber lever stop. Its standard lenses are M39 screw mount Jupiter-8 50mm f/2 or Industar-50 50mm f/3.5. Shutter is cloth horizontal focal plane with speed 1-1/1000 +B.
