Super rare camera. The exterior is vintage, gorgeous. The camera shows all the signs of full performance, workable, but the shutter does not reach the end of the opening, the exposure meter, naturally, no longer responds to the light.

Object/device type: Camera
Brand: Kiev
Lens Mount Type: Other
Condition: Good
Lenses Brand: Kiev Arsenal
Camera Type: Rangefinder camera

I write for those who do not understand the difference between Kyiv-4 and Kiev-3. The camera Kiev-3 has a flap-footrest at the bottom for stability of the camera, as well as a barrel-shaped rewind wheel. The exponometer at a sight from above has not a lot of other form.


After the end of World War II in 1945, Germany had to pay military reparations in accordance with the peace agreement. Among many famous German products, Russia demanded the famous cameras Zeiss Contax II and Contax III as war reparations. Before the plant was destroyed as a result of the bombing, Contax cameras were produced on Zeiss Ikon AG in Dresden, the capital of the German photographic industry. By the 45th year, it was already the Russian zone of occupied Germany.
The Soviet occupying force, the Soviet Military Administration in Germany (SWAG), offered Zeiss several good high-paying projects, as well as many orders that could not be rejected. Among them was the task of organizing the production of 5000 Contax cameras per month in a suitable place in the Soviet Union. The working title of this cell was to be Volga.
In 1947, about 2000 Contax cameras were officially manufactured at the Zeiss plant in Jena (Jena). Most of them were cameras of the Contax II model, along with several copies of Contax III and others, with the already new name "KYIV", written in bold Cyrillic script.
In October 1947, Zeiss transferred the 3 newly built production lines to the Soviet Union as a reparation. The promise of SWAG-a that they would leave the third line to Carl Zeiss in Germany, as it turned out, was not worth even the paper on which it was written.
But, even after the transfer, fixed by the agreement, until the early 1950s, the limited series of Contax cameras called "Kiev" were still manufactured at the Carl Zeiss plant in Jena.

The camera gives all the signs of full working capacity, but I do not give full guarantee and responsibility due to the return of the exhibit.The exponometer has sat down, it does not work.

    Why do you spoil my reputation ?? Your package has already left Ukraine and is in transit. Delivery time may take up to three weeks, as the country outside the EU zone is delayed at customs.

    Ben al 14 dagen aan het wachten op mijn bestelling. Ik begrijp dat het niet bij de deur is, maar volgens mij is mijn bestelling verloren gegaan, via tracking heb ik geen nieuws sinds 10 dagen.

    Ci sono voluti più di venti giorni per ricevere l'obiettivo, ma si è rivelato conforme alla descrizione e funzionante, è presente qualche granello di polvere non presente nella descrizione.

    Fast delivery and good packaging.
    Product close to the description, but not "Fully functional, working" as stated, as both camera need services, especially on the lowest speed.
    Price was really good.
