Wiki Catalog Entry

Kiev Vega 1st version.

Subminiature 10x14mm, using 16mm film in special one piece cassettes with built-in feed/takeup spools. Aluminum body. Viewfinder window with icons and lens opening protected by flat glass plates. Minox-style “push-pull” cocking and film advance. Viewing and shutter release possible only when camera is in extended position [3].
I've added a picture of the rarer gold version, issued in very limited numbers in 1957-58The flat glass plate over the lens is actually a filter and the leather case contains a yellow and orange filter that can be easily fitted

I have added three photos of an early black Kiev-Vega. The last photo shows the lens designation on an early Kiev-Vega, with the name in Ukrainian cyrillic rather than Russian. - David Tomlinson.
