Rangefinder camera manufactured at the Kiev defense company Arsenal. Replaced essentially the same Kiev-3a. Kiev rangefinder cameras come from the Contax-2 and Contax-3 rangefinder cameras. A well-known fact is the transfer of equipment, documentation, specialists, components and other things by the German company Carl Zeiss Jena, due to the reparation of the country that suffered the most in the Second World War, namely the USSR. The Contax rangefinder cameras decided to continue to assemble at the facilities of the Arsenal defense enterprise, but the name itself was changed to a more acceptable Kiev. The first Kiev cameras were assembled from components for Contax cameras. German experts helped and assisted in the development of complex equipment. Many consider the rangefinders of Kiev a copy of Contax, although in fact the camera was “presented” and the Germans helped start production, albeit voluntarily-forcibly. Focusing – on the rangefinder. Shutter speeds are 1250-500-250-125-50-25-10-5-2 and “B”. Optics mount – Contax mount. The standard lens is Jupiter-8. The back cover is removable. Kiev-Contax is an order of magnitude more complicated and accomplishment than Leica-2 (FED-Zorkiy). Designers did not seek a compromise between quality and usability, rectangular shapes and heavy weight bribe and respect. Although ergonomics are not the best, mainly when focusing, the fingers of the right hand block the window of the rangefinder, thereby complicating the process. There is no usual cock of a platoon, instead of it a head – it’s a selector for selecting shutter speeds. We pack and treat all your orders with an antiseptic. My name is Ksenia. The city of Kiev.

Kiev-2 was produced at the Kiev plant Arsenal from 1947 to 1955. Regular lens Jupiter-8 2/50. Fastening type – bayonet Contax-Kiev external and internal. This is a very interesting and peculiar type of fastening. I have a separate article about him, where everything is described in detail. The shutter is curtain with vertical movement of curtains. Curtains are assembled from narrow metal links (blinds). The shutter speeds are 1/2, 1/5, 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1250 and B. Later models changed the shutter speed from 1/1250 to 1/1000. In general, the set of excerpts is wonderful for the 80s. In the 50s, it was just chic. The device has a self-timer, but the synchronizer does not. The Kiev synchronizer appeared only in the Kiev-2A model in 1956. The weight of my copy without a lens is 590 grams. In front, in addition to the lens and the scales of distances and depth of field placed on the bayonet frame, they are located from left to right. Viewfinder window on the left. Large rectangular eye rangefinder. Lever and self-timer start button. Rangefinder base 90 mm. The Kiev rangefinder has the largest base of all Soviet devices. The rangefinder and viewfinder are placed on different sides of the device. There is simply nowhere else to go. True, because of this, the middle finger of the right hand constantly covers the rangefinder window. You need to get used to correctly placing your fingers on the body. And, for my taste, right – not always comfortable. The self-timer start button is hidden under its cocking lever. Behind – only the eye of the viewfinder. The rear panel of the device above the removable cover is also covered with soft leather. The skin, apparently, is natural, pleasant to the touch. What can I say – the front half of the case is covered with suede from the inside. It was interesting for me to compare the viewfinders of the devices of 51 and 81 years of release. The intrigue fell apart before it began. I didn’t see the difference. The viewfinders are the same. But if for the 80s the viewfinder of Kiev was average, then for the 50s it is simply excellent. It gives a not very large, but decent size picture. The main field is slightly darkened. The rangefinder area in the center is simply gorgeous. In combination with a wide base and a bayonet design that provides high accuracy, using the Kiev-2 rangefinder is a pleasure. Below the camera are. Two rotary locks locking a removable back wall. Tripod socket, the old, of course, 3/8 inch standard. Folding stop (around the tripod socket). Shutter off button. The folding stop is a convenient device that is found on only a few Soviet devices. With its help, you can even put the device on any hard horizontal surface, and it will not “bite” even with a long and heavy lens attached. In the photo, Kiev-2 stands exactly with the Jupiter-11 lens. In later models, the stop was abandoned, apparently because tripods became more common fixtures. The shutter release button is gone on later models. Although the shutdown mechanism itself remained the same, but the shutdown was performed not by a button, but by moving the right lock to a special position, in which it pressed something like a pedal inside the device. Above from left to right are. Bracket for flashes. A focusing wheel and a pressure plate located behind it, which unlocks the stopper of the internal mount. Arched frame counter window. The head for transporting the frame and cocking the shutter, combined with the shutter speed head and the shutter button located in the center. The focus wheel can be rotated with the index finger of the right hand instead of the left hand rotating the lens helicoid. Uto works only for lenses in the internal mount. With others, such an operation is not recommended – too much load on the mechanics. In general, the feature is more fun than really useful. The operation of the Contax-Kiev mount is described in more detail in a separate article. I will not delve into this issue here. The cocking and film transport head is large and comfortable. The same head changes shutter speeds. To change the shutter speed, the crown must be raised and rotated to the desired value. Regarding whether it is possible to change shutter speeds with the shutter not cocked, the instructions for Kiev-2 do not give an answer. It traditionally says that it is recommended to change shutter speeds with the shutter cocked. The shutter speed scale on Kiev-2 is marked with rather small numbers. It is located at the base of the head and is partially covered by the knurling. Short shutter speeds are heavily loaded in one place, but others are scattered over the entire, practically, circle and they are not visible all at once. The index that needs to be set opposite the selected shutter speed is very small and not in a very convenient place. Getting them to the right fast shutter speed is not a very simple exercise. In general, as a bespectacled man, it’s really difficult for me to manage the excerpts of Kiev-2. My name is Ksenia. The city of Kiev.

Kiev-20 was produced at the Kiev plant Arsenal from 1983 to 1986. The release was short lived. The production volumes are unknown to me, but they were modest, that’s for sure. The reason is the high price of the device. The Wiki says that in the 80s the Kiev-20 cost 400 rubles. Zenit-19 was a hundred cheaper. Yes, it was simpler, but a pair of LEDs and froze in the open are not worth this difference. Kiev-20 lens mount – H mount. Working distance – 46.5 mm. There is a repeater. The H mount, also known as Nikon F, is one of two small format camera mounts that have remained unchanged since the advent of autofocus and digital photography. Another type of such attachment, which has survived to this day, is the K mount, developed by Asahi Pentax. The remaining mounts for small-format optics, which appeared before the mid-1980s, are considered obsolete and replaced by fundamentally new ones, incompatible with previously released photographic equipment. All this allows you to use lenses from Kiev with modern Nikon DSLRs. More about this in a dedicated article. Moreover, if interesting Soviet optics with a K mount are quite rare, then excellent interchangeable lenses for Kiev-17 -19 -20 are very common. The standard lens Kiev-20 is Helios-81N 2/50 or Volna-4 1.4/53. The wave is very rare. The shutter is mechanical, lamella with vertical movement of two pairs of metal lamellae. Beats shutter speeds: 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1000, V. There is conflicting information about the shutter. Basically, the sources say that the Kiev-20 shutter is similar to the Kiev-17 shutter. There is, however, an opinion that the shutter of the twentieth has been seriously redesigned. The mechanism for lifting the mirror is also very different. I can’t say anything here. The shutter is non-volatile. Without batteries, the device is fully functional. Without metering, of course. Flash sync at 1/60, same as seventeenth. The camera is equipped with hot and wired sync contacts, it also has a self-timer. Viewfinder image field size – 23 × 35 mm. The type of focusing screen is a Fresnel lens with a frosted ring, a microraster and Doden wedges. The weight of my copy without a lens is 745 grams. The design of Kiev-20 is almost indistinguishable from Kiev-17, but it’s exactly as long as you don’t put the cameras side by side. The differences are not radical, but they are, in fact, enough. Housing Kiev-20 has become higher. Due to this, the height of the pentaprism casing visually decreased. The casing itself has become more gentle, squat, in its shape there are fewer sharp corners. In general, Kiev-20 looks more massive and more solid than the seventeenth. In addition to the above, the trigger and shutter button have changed (both have become more convenient) and a film sensitivity selector has appeared on the left. The ergonomics of the Kiev-20 is quite decent. The shutter speed head is still on the front left. In the review of Kiev-17, I already spoke about this. For me, an acceptable location, but not the most convenient. The head rotates moderately tight, with clear clicks. A little lower on the mirror shaft is the bayonet lock pedal. On the right side, like the Kiev-17, there is a lever with a self-timer button and a tight diaphragm repeater pedal. Here above on light metal is a new element. This is the round black TTL metering enable button. Why didn’t they do a half-press on the shutter button? In Kiev-20, exposure metering will turn on with a separate button. The button can be pressed with the middle finger while holding the index finger on the trigger, but for me, for example, this is inconvenient. I prefer a firmer grip with all fingers. But I don’t find any problems in moving the index finger from the metering button to the shutter release. Here we turn to the main feature of the Kiev-20 – to measure on an open aperture. Kiev-20 is equipped with an AI (Automatic Indexing) system copied from Nikon. This system consists of. A a special drank in the back of the aperture ring on the lens. B a spring-loaded leash that goes around the shoulder strap of the lens mount on the camera. When attaching a lens, drank on the aperture ring catches the leash on the body of the device. Further, when switching apertures, the ring moves the leash. So the set aperture value is transferred to the exposure calculator. Moreover, not even the aperture value itself is transmitted, but the index of the ratio of the set aperture value to the lens aperture. Thanks to this, the system works with lenses of different luminosity, but its value does not need to be entered directly into the camera. Thanks to AI, things like framing, focusing and exposure always happen with the brightest possible picture. But in the exposure calculation, it is the working aperture value set on the lens that is taken into account. Lenses with an H mount are blinking, and therefore the aperture will close automatically to the working value after pressing the shutter button. Well, for modern cameras, all this is a dense routine, but. My name is Ksenia. The city of Kiev. My Brother Ruslan And Husband Roma Helps Me We Have A Small Family Business.
