The Krasnogorsk-3 (Красногорск-3) is a 16-mm windup camera (Фотокамера) made in the former Soviet Union. The name "Krasnogorsk" comes from the suburb of Moscow where the plant is located.
The K-3 has been adopted by many film schools, including the University of Southern California's School of Cinema and Television.
Its low price, rugged construction and sophisticated optics have made it very popular with both beginning filmmakers and professionals. Among the K-3's credits are music videos for the Spin Doctors and Suicidal Tendencies.
Director Spike Lee shot some of the footage in his film Get On The Bus using a K-3. There is a photo of Spike holding a K-3 on the cover of the soundtrack CD.
