I am an Soviet and Russian camera collector residing in State of Illinois, USA. I have only somewhat recently started collecting (since May 2007) these fine examples of Soviet and Russian mechanical engineering and design that until late 80s have been closed off to the rest of the world. Now that these cameras have come to light, I want to share them with all of you. Recently I have decided to start cataloging Soviet and Russian cameras online, thus the project was born, which is a Wiki catalog of Russian and Soviet cameras.

Wiki Catalog Entry
The Kiev 35A is a compact, lightweight, yet full-frame, aperture-priority automatic 35mm camera. You set the ISO speed and focusing distance, select the f-stop, and the camera selects the appropriate shutter speed, automatically varying the exposure for changes in lighting conditions. Its glass lens ensures sharp, crisp pictures. Clamshell construction protects the lens when not in use. Hardly bigger than two boxes of film, this camera can be easily carried anywhere. Attaching a shoe-mount flash sets the shutter to X sync speed automatically.

The shutter release button on top of camera also has a threaded shutter release receptacle for using a shutter release cable, making this a very versatile compact camera.
