Found a mention of this camera on Mike Haley's site:

http://cccp.webstar.nl/price_list.htm

Any info on this one?

Hi Vlad,

Kiev FK-6 seems to be very rare version of Kiev-6C camera (or just look very similar). I'm sorry, but I still don't know how to place image inside the message ...

Regards,
Aidas

Thanks Aidas!

You need to post a URL link to an image. That means you have to host the image on the web somewhere... Click on "Forum Code" link on the left of the reply box it'll give you a syntax how to put it in the message.

Hey People!
Could FK6 be the same Space Kiev found on http://www.ussrphoto.com/Wiki/default.asp?WikiCatID=17&ParentID=1&ContentID=121&Item=Kiev+6+Space+Camera
FK6 sounds as Fotoapparat-Kosmicheskii Nš6 ?

Very interesting, it is a pretty much Kiev 6C with a small difference. It's definitely NOT the Space Kiev, as that one has interchangeable backs and it's more "Square" looking. Thank you Aidas!

Apart from the leather finish i can't see any difference between FK-6 and conventional kiev 6;
IMPORTANT NOTE; Dr Milos Myladek has an enormous collection of Russian oddities and unique products Including one product edition item as Sputnik 4 lens etc. He has also a vast technical documentation as original calculations and blue prints of inedit cameras. He could be of large value as our previleged member.
I suggest Invite him to participate this forum. As a matter of fact he furnished several data for the second edition of Princelle's book on Russian cameras

Luiz,
We all know that dr.Milos Mladek is a leading collector of soviet oddities, but he's very busy person as I know. It would be fantastic to have him, Alain Berry, Yuriy Davidenko, Viktor Suglob and many many others in this forum indeed.
