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 you change the shutter speed without cocking the shutter first, the setting pin can be broken when you advance the film and cock the shutter.
The Zorki 2-C has both flash synchronization and a self timer. It also has strap lugs on the body, something the Zorki C lacked. Zorki 2-C came both with collapsible and fixed Industar-50 lens.
