charlieT's review of Kiev 60

★★★★☆

“Big Beast”

Written on: 14/03/2012 by charlieT (5 reviews written)

I bought the Kiev 60 used with an 80mm and 250mm lens for £115 from Ebay UK. I was apprehensive about the camera after reading the winding mechanism could be broken without careful use. I read the instructions, loaded a film, put on the waste level finder and took it out for a days snapping. I got the film back and was pleasantly surprised, nice clear well exposed images. The camera is very simple to use and I have added a Prism Finder to since that first outing. The camera is a big beast though, it weighs in at around 2kg with 80mm lens and prism finder, once you add a wide and telephoto to the kit, a pack horse is required to lug the thing around. I think the Kiev 60 is pure photography fun, it is also a conversation piece, folks wonder what the heck it is especially those who know only digital gear.
