In Soviet times, a huge number of cameras were created, and many of them were copies of German cameras. And the Lubitel camera is no exception.
The Lubitel cameras come from Komsomolets cameras, which were pretty exact replicas of the German pseudo-twin-lens Voigtländer Brillant cameras.
The Komsomolets, like the original Voigtländer Brillant, was also a pseudo-twin-lens reflex camera, that is, it did not have ground glass, and focusing was carried out using the distance scale. But the first Lubitel (Amateur) was a full-fledged twin-lens reflex camera.
All Komsomolets and Lubitel cameras were made of bakelite of sufficient quality and were equipped with Triplet lenses. Due to their structure, these lenses give very cool classic photographs.
