General Comments
Kiev 60 is a successor of the Kiev 6C which is a copy of the Pentacon SIX. This camera accepts only 120 film format, and makes 60X60mm negatives. Shutter speed range for medium format is good: 1/2-1/1000, flash sync on 1/30 it's OK for such a huge shutter but still is too slow. There are modifications with mirror lockup, my camera doesn't have it. This camera can accept all Carl Zeiss Jena lenses that cost reasonable price and give superior quality.

Usually camera comes with TTL Prism finder, it's accurate but sometimes needs to be adjusted. The lens MC Volna 3 1:2.8 80mm is great multicoated lens, it's sharp and colours are very nice. If you are lucky enough to get this camera in a kit, you will have a set of filters, lens hood, waste level finder plus a TTL Prism finder and a fine leather bag.

I really like this camera for SLR handling, good body finish and great pictures.

The weight of Kiev 60 with standart lens is heavy: 2.1KG.
