The Zorki 2 has essentially the same camera design as the Zorki 1, albeit with self-timer and with strap lugs. The Zorki 2 was manufactured from 1954 to 1956 and 10,310 were produced making it one of the rarer Zorki. Shutter speeds: Z, 1/20, 1/30, 1/40, 1/50, 1/100, 1/200 and 1/500 of a sec. The camera came traditionally with an Industar-22 50mm f/3.5 lens.
The Zorki 2-S (C in Cyrillic) was a redesign of the Zorki S that added a self-timer and strap lugs to the body. The Zorki S and 2S are considered less attractive because of the top plate redesign which removed the sleeker look of the Zorki 1 and 2.
