The Zorki-4K is a 1970s Soviet-era 35mm film rangefinder camera. While KMZ did produce a Zorki-5 and a Zorki-6, the Zorki-4K body is actually the latest camera in the line, with a total of 524.610 cameras produced from 1972 to 1978. Latin Zorki-4K = Cyrillic Зоркий-4K and means Sharp Sight.

As with other Soviet-era rangefinders, the shutter speed selector rotates when the shutter is released, and should not be changed until after the shutter has been cocked. If the shutter speed is changed without cocking the shutter first, the setting pin can be broken when the film is advanced.

The Zorki-4K is basically a Zorki-4 with the addition of a fixed take-up spool and a film advance lever instead of the knurled knob. The KMZ logo was moved to the left so it would not be covered by the advance lever and leave room for a rubber lever stop. Its standard lenses are M39 screw mount Jupiter-8 50mm f/2 or Industar-50 50mm f/3.5. Shutter is cloth horizontal focal plane with speed 1-1/1000 +B.
