All that sounded very mysterious to me. One of the reasons why I collect them?

A German shutter inside a 1951 Kiev II camera ? jed@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2608&REPLY_ID=14873 Collectors and Users Open Forum Sat, 25 Oct 2014 13:19:48 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2608 Quote:

I also own an early 1950 Kiev (export model s/n 501504) - I just have checked : the shutter seems the same as the one pictured here (october 15)

My 1958 Kiev 3a 'Ukrainian Logo' has s/n 5835128. So they made around 35000 cameras that year ? Kiev 3a is very well made.]]>

Also in the past I've discussed with Bill (nightphoto) that we would want to have the Images depicting use of Soviet cameras section, but then I thought about it we can just add 1 entry to the Miscellaneous Content section under Member Articles and Blogs and add all those images in there, this was it can also be viewed as a photo gallery instead of separate entries. Bill would you like to create that entry?

Hi Vlad,

Yes milions made [:)]

Aren't these ones a bit more plasticky than the earlier ones?

I can only remember seeing EM and B models in our local camera shops way back in the 70's and they got snapped up quickly too.
