The Krasnogorsk-3 or K3 is a cheap spring-wound 16mm mirror-reflex movie camera designed and manufactured in the former Soviet Union by KMZ. The name 'Krasnogorsk' comes from the suburb of Moscow where the plant is located. Production of the Krasnogorsk-3 ceased in the early 1990s.

It was one of the most popular 16mm movie cameras in Eastern Europe, where it made a prominent appearance in Krzysztof Kieslowski's 1979 film Amator (Camera Buff), and continues to enjoy considerable popularity in the West.

The K3 has been adopted by many film schools, including the University of Southern California's School of Cinema and Television.
