Modified and improved by the company ARAX. The camera has been tested by a specialist. All mechanical parts function perfectly. The remodeling was carried out by ARAX FOTO (Kiev).What has been done: the bottom of the camera is strengthened, a mirror pre-lift(MLU) is installed, a Pentacon six mount is installed. The entire mechanical part of the device and cassettes has been sorted and debugged. The camera body, film backs (cassettes)and level finder are covered in black leather. Everything works like a clock.
The camera does not require any material investments, it is completely ready for shooting. Mirror lock-up is a feature employed in many Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras.It allows the operator to reduce vibration-induced motion blur during exposure. Their Kiev line of cameras includes their internally upgraded Kiev-88 and Kiev-88CM with P6 Pentacon Six bayonet lens mount. All the sores of Kiev were removed in this camera, namely: the shutter speed selection mechanism was modernized, the mirror pre-lift function was added, the curtains were replaced with black cloth (they work much quieter), a new shaft with a convenient magnifier built into the top cover, a new light focusing screen, the entire interior is covered with black velvet paper (no stray glare or flare), the multi-exposure function in the back has been added, the back has also undergone significant changes, now it has a back cover that opens, charging the film has become much more convenient, and finally a special pocket is made for gate, as on Mamiya and Contax 645. The shutter button is placed on the lower right side. Now the button does not overlap with the lens and there is free access to it even when you attach a large lens, such as Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 180/2. But the most important advantage is the Bayonet B (Pentacon Six), on which you can find many inexpensive and very cool lenses from this system. Medium format camera Kiev-88CM MLU. Lens Volna-3 80mm f/2.8.
