Zenit 12XP 35mm SLR Film Camera with 58mm f2 Lens

Zenit 12XP 35mm SLR Film Camera with Helios 58mm f2 Lens

All cameras come with a 6-month warranty.

This kit includes:

  • Zenit 12XP film camera body 
  • Helios-44M-4 58mm f2 lens


The Zenit 12XP is a fully mechanical camera. This means it does not require batteries to operate the shutter. The battery is only used the power the camera’s light meter.

It uses M-42 lenses.

The Zenit might be the most iconic Soviet SLR. We paired it with another Soviet icon, the Helios-44M-4 58mm f2 lens. This lens will give your pictures the classic “vintage” look you get from old soviet lenses.


Due to the age of this camera and the nature of old light meters we can’t guarantee that the light meter still works. This isn’t an issue as the camera will function perfectly without batteries. To meter a scene before taking a picture we recommend using an external light-meter or a light-meter app on your phone. Alternatively you can use the foolproof sunny-16 rule.
