Old topik, but here is another Tair-3T (Television, not tropical... I think T means tropicalised only for cameras (I know there are some "Start" T).




This one use an "A" mount, which is certainly the consequence of a modification.

Vega-25, any ideas? Moxies@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2557 Collectors and Users Open Forum Tue, 22 Apr 2014 17:23:32 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2557
I have got a lens, but I can't find any info about it on the net, even on the .ru . Does anyone know when was it made, who made it and what for?

Vega-25 50mm/5.6

No factory logo, SN 3001. According to design, it's post 80's, maybe post-USSR.
Surely for kind of automatic machine (regarding to cranted diaph ring).
But only hypotheses, I thought one of you could have infos about this lens.

Dee, thank you for this detailed explanation, it's exteremely interesting for me to see how two diverging parallel lines of cameras models from 2 different countries developed independently (i.e. Kiev 4) can still be combined and mixed together in terms of parts. It's a very unique perspective into the design progression of the Kievs. I wonder if you get any cracks/light leaks when using these.. did you ever run a film through them?

Best regards,
Kontax Twins dee@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2554 Collectors and Users Open Forum Fri, 18 Apr 2014 02:47:57 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2554
The tan one was a rat Contax, which I never expected to be completely restored, but the techs managed to save the shutter, so it's almost original-except for removing the broken delayed action.
Paint and leather were terrible, so I asked for the metal to be stripped and sent tan leather to make a wholly unique Konta.

The black camera was literally, a box of spares from two or more cameras.
Initially I hoped that the controls and fascia could be fitted to a Kiev III, but they used all the parts with a complete new,Kiev shutter.
Mike tells me that it is a new, not used, shutter , so could be from Kiev 4/4a 1970s?

Both cameras work perfectly, the tan Contax surprisingly quiet, I did take photos some while ago and no light leaks etc.

The Contax II twins, Contax III and Contax/Kiev twins cost average £150 each, so not cost effective, but I was receiving about £100 for each Dinky Toy car.

Resale value? Probably £10 each!!!!

Regards dee
