Vintage Kiev 88 SLR Medium Format Camera With f2.8 80mm MC Volna 3 lens

This is a very nice Vintage Kiev 88 SLR Medium Format Camera With f2.8 80mm MC Volna 3 lens, Waist Level Finder and original leather carry bag. 

It was made in the former USSR in the Arsenal factory, Kiev, Ukraine. Manufactured as a cheaper copy of the Hasselblad 1600F and affectionately known as the 'Hasselbladski.'

This example is in extremely good condition, 95% ++, with a few superficial marks commensurate with age and use. 

  • The camera body leatherette is in good condition.  
  • The view screen carries a few minor scratches and dust. 
  • The lens diaphragm is stuck open irrespective of what aperture is preselected so the lens always has an aperture of f2.8 - this may be a spring fault or the lens mechanics may need cleaning but the camera is sold with this fault. 
  • The shutter and wind on work perfectly and smoothly.
