Marcy's Cosmorex SE Camera :

Heh, heh... doesn't that hard case have the look of a vintage Red Army helmet? It came with an Auto Cosmogon 2.0 58mm lens. Like all high quality SLRs, the lens is a screw mount. The camera weighs in at a hefty 2 pounds, 3.7 ounces. Beefy and sound. The built in meter appears to actually work.

Built in 1974. That's the year Gerald Ford took over. I couldn't find anything cold-war-ish at hand to photograph. Manufactured by Krasnogorsk, Russia for Photoptic Import Corp. NY. The Cosmorex SE is a variant on the Zenit EM.
