This is probably question more to Luiz but everyone who knows anything about it is welcome to chime in.

Luiz, have you ever heard of this Brazilian rebrand? I don't think I've ever heard of rebranded Arsenal camera before...

Thanks,
Vlad

Kiev-80 was also sold as Revue-80 in Germany, and maybe even renaming Saliut/Kiev to Zenit is rebranding?

Juhani, you are correct, somehow I forgot about the Hasselblad clones... Alain, congrats! I had a feeling it was you who bought it, I hope you don't mind me adding it to catalog, we have an agreement with Alex...

Ok Mirage is a registered name of Sosecal the oldest and greatest importer in Brazil. This importer was also a Polaroid distributor. Around 1988/1990 They distributed special Kiev 80 with Arsenal made Polaroid magazine backs and sold the set as "Professional- Polaroids". This happened before the foundation of the Svetozor. They (Sosecal) brought several lenses for the Kiev 80 and the Kiev 19 as Mirage camera.

Continuing... I do not know the real reasons but Sosecal broke relationship with Polaroid that soon distributed their own cameras.
Very interesting to say that those Kiev came though their Polaroid channel. and we lost the Kiev cameras distribution.
