Soviet Cams is a resource for collectors of Soviet Union and Russian cameras, dating from 1929 onwards. The website primarily consists of a gallery of different cameras produced by different Soviet/Russian manufacturers.

Some of those included are:

  • Fed

Alongside these, there are galleries for a variety of early cameras and spy cameras.

Soviet Cams also has a large online gallery of Soviet and Russian camera-related books from the 19th and 20th Centuries.
