    Hi

    I was using Kiev-6C and Kiev-60 for a while. Having repaired a few of them (as well as some P6 lenses) myself I know the frustration that comes when you try to figure out some internal Kiev 60 mechanical problem and not having enough information to do it.

    I recently got hold of Arsenal's Kiev 60 repair/service manual - the original was very kindly scanned for me by Carsten Bobsin. I have the high resolution scans of all the pages and put together a DJVU file containing the whole book. The file is the 31MB I wanted to share it with the Kiev community in a hope it will be useful for all DIY enthusiasts that get ivolved in Kiev 6C/60 tweaking.

    I have at this time shared it on my ISP webspace here - feel free to download it.

    I used Kiev 88 and it was extremelly good camera , lenses 80 mm and 250 mm were perfect. I shot my lifes greatest pictures with it. Now I am banging my head to the wall , why I sold it. My eye is on 60s and sexiest coolest cameras I have ever seen and miracle , they are cheap.
    Thank you uploading the repair manual , I downloaded it and save in my account.
    Keep using it and post your images. I will search for 6C also.

    Thanks all

    I'm glad it is useful to someone. All credits for doing all the hard work should go to Carsten Bobsin - he is the one who did all the hard work and endured all the scanning and rescanning (in case of some pages).
