S is written C in Cyrillic) was manufactured from 1955 - 58 by KMZ, Krasnogorsk,
Russia. A small-ish
manual exposure rangefinder camera with a collapsible screw mounted industar-22
lens. It has two viewing windows, one a rangefinder to focus and the other
to compose/frame the shot.
Everything seemed OK, but the film didn't wind on. The take-up spool had
a rivet missing which connected to the wind drive shaft, I just put a
small screw in its place. Caution! have to make sure lens is fully extended
and locked in place before shooting, nothing in focus otherwise!
