    Kiev 60 Repair/Service Manual available

    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.

    Me too, thank you for the manual, even though I currently Do not have a Kiev 60 I am sure it will come in very handy one day. Already Got it downloaded.

    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).
