The body is metal, made by injection molding. Material – base steel, upper part – aluminum.

Zenit-B was produced with both M39 and M42 threads for mounting lenses. Due to the increased flange distance on Zenit-B cameras with M39 thread, it is impossible to use rangefinder optics (only macro). They are also found without a shoe for installing flash units, but with a sync contact, as in the photo. For export, they were delivered with the inscription Zenit-B. They are perfect as donors for older models of Zenit-E and ET cameras, as they often have a similar design.
