Kiev 6S/60

Medium format 6x6 SLR system • Discontinued


A medium format 6x6 SLR system created on the basis of KW/Pentacon developments and produced by the Arsenal Plant (Kiev, USSR).


  • Kiev-6S - the Soviet Pentacon six copy, but for some reason with the shutter release button located on the left side of the camera, which caused numerous complaints from Soviet photographers. After a TTL prism finder was developed for this camera in 1978, it became known as Kiev-6S TTL;
  • Kiev-60 - a version of the Kiev-6S TTL with a shutter release button located on the right side of the camera body, and without support for 220 roll film (in the USSR, this type of film was not mass-produced or sold).


Kiev-6S/60 and Salyut/Kiev-88 cameras shared the same line of lenses.
