    Looking for a kiev user

    hi people,

    im looking for somebody who uses a Kiev medium format camera, i want to know if u can fire and cock the shutter without a lens attached? or is there sum pin or finger that is pressed or pushed by the lens when its connected to the body?
    I want to know this because i want to see if i can use the kiev as a base for a tilt and shift adapter im designing. It will sport a LF lens, so i need a curtain shutter on camera.

    greetings

    Yes, you could cock and fire the shutter without a lens or a back. As far as I know, there is no interlock.

    If you're using a LF lens why do you need to use the Kiev shutter?

    I sometimes use a LF lens in Copal shutter on my Kiev 88CM. I just mount the lens on my Pentacon Bellows, then I can use either one of the shutters.

    However, for perspective control stuff with my Kiev, I use my either my 45mm PC Hartblei or my 55mm PC Arsat.

    I do it all the time. No problems yet, on my Hartblei master 88

    You can mount any of the Hartblei or Arsat PC lenses on a Pentacon bellows. I believe that the HartBlei 45mm PC Super Rotator lens probably has the most perspective correction capability, and it is a very good lens.

    ...what you SHOULDN'T do is change speeds WITHOUT cocking the shutter.
