MMZ (Minsk Mechanical Factory) was founded in 1957. It started making optical glass and producing cameras that were developed by GOMZ. In 1971 it became BelOMO (Belorussian Optical and Mechanical Association). It was based in Minsk, the capital of the former Soviet republic Belarus. Its unique camera product was the Chaika half-frame camera.
