Krasnogorsk-2 USSR 16mm Film Camera


Out of stock

Unlock the world of 16mm filmmaking with the Krasnogorsk-2 USSR 16mm Camera, a budget-friendly yet versatile option available exclusively at Camera Crate. While this camera is not suitable for beginners due to the need for handwinding film into custom cassettes in complete darkness, it offers enthusiasts and seasoned filmmakers the opportunity to explore the beauty of 16mm filmmaking at an affordable price point.

The Krasnogorsk-2 comes equipped with a Mir-11 12.5mm f/2 Lens and a Vega-7 20mm f/2 Lens, both complemented by lens caps to protect your valuable glass. These lenses offer you a range of creative possibilities, from capturing wide-angle scenes to achieving stunning close-ups with a beautiful bokeh effect.

The camera package includes a durable case for secure transportation and storage, ensuring your equipment remains protected during your filmmaking journey. Two magazines are also included, providing convenience and flexibility for extended shoots without constant reloading.

To enhance your creative control, the Krasnogorsk-2 comes with four ND filters, allowing you to adjust your exposure settings and capture the perfect shot in various lighting conditions. These filters are essential tools for achieving the desired cinematic look.

The camera offers a range of film rates, including 8fps, 12fps, 16fps, 24fps, 32fps, and 48fps, giving you the flexibility to create different cinematic effects and motion styles. The 150-degree shutter ensures smooth and cinematic motion capture.

It’s important to note that this camera uses an internal cassette system, which requires the film to be spooled into custom cassettes in complete darkness. This process demands experience and precision, making the Krasnogorsk-2 better suited for filmmakers who are familiar with the intricacies of working with film.

While the Krasnogorsk-2 USSR 16mm Camera may not be recommended for beginners, it offers an affordable entry point into the world of 16mm filmmaking for those who are up to the challenge. Its compact design and versatile lens options make it a valuable addition to any filmmaker’s toolkit. Explore the world of analog filmmaking and order your Krasnogorsk-2 from Camera Crate today.

Every camera we sell is vigorously inspected by our team. Our ten-part inspection method includes the following checks:

  1. Lens - we check for any mould, dust, haze, dirt, cracks and air bubbles. Where possible we clean/remove any imperfections – any remaining are noted.
  2. Zoom – we inspect both manual and power zoom work smoothly. Any issues are noted.
  3. Focus – we check that manual focus is smooth and works well. If automatic focus is included as a feature that is also checked.
  4. Motor / Claw – we check that the motor runs smoothly at all advertised speeds and that the film claw has sufficient torque to advance film.
  5. Filmgate – this is inspected and any dirt or hair is removed.
  6. Lightmeter – the lightmeter is inspected to ensure it automatically reacts correctly to light. Manual aperture control and/or backlight is also checked if included as a feature.
  7. Viewfinder – we inspect for mould, dust and haze or damage. Where possible we clean/remove any imperfections – any remaining is noted.
  8. Battery terminals - we inspect for rust/corrosion, cleaning and repairing where needed.
  9. Body – where possible we clean any imperfections. Any remaining cosmetic damage is noted.
  10. Additional Features – all additional model specific features (such as timelapse or crossfade) are checked for functionality.
