    Strap Lug for Kiev 88

    Hello-

    My Kiev-88 has wanted to go on a walk with me for some time now...I tried to order a strap for it on ebay (from the KIEV company), and although the post promised it would fit all, the strap didn't fit my camera's strap lugs. The connectors on the strap were too small. When I emailed the company, their response was "Oh, you must have that one model it doesn't work with..." and that was all...

    So to all of you smarties out there, has this occurred to any of you? When I looked on bhphoto.com there was connector A or connector B on the medium format straps, but I couldn't find any info on what size has a bigger connector... which I'm assuming I need...

    Any info on camera straps on my mf friend would be much appreciated!

    Check Arax Foto in Ukraine.

    I have ordered and received accessories from them for my Salyut-C. No problems and it takes about 10 days to receive the shipment (well-packed and in good condition).

    Hi there,

    I've got the same problem as fotobug8 had, I'm looking for a fitting strap for my Salyut-S. As Paul suggested, I ordered one from Arax, but although they stated that it should fit, it doesn't: the hole in the connectors is just to small.

    Anyone one any ideas where I could get a fitting strap or just the connectors?

    Any help would be very welcome

    Perhaps you could try Mamiya 645 connectors. Mine fit at least my Kiev 60 lugs.

    I use the Optech Super Pro strap with lug B connectors on my P67 and it seems to work well; in fact I've bought additional B connectors for my P67 FujiRoid body.

    As I understand the chart lug A shout fit Kiev, but maybe I misunderstood your OP.

    edit:
    This photo shows the B connector has a larger opening...

    Is this what you are looking for? I custom made leather strap for Hasselblad. I believe Kiev 88 uses the same lug.

    Thanks all for your suggestions. The problem with the strap I have is Not the width of the narrower part of the opening of the connectors (as shown on the Photo of the optech connectors) but the maximum width of the opening. The lugs on my salyut are apparently larger, 6.5 mm, than those on the other kiev's. These openings seem quite large on the optech connectors, but i'd like to make sure before ordering them. Does anyone have these measurements for me?

    Thanks for your troubles Dan, I ordered the Op/tech strap with A connectors and they fit perfectly.

    You can easily enlarge the holes on the strap fittings with a small rat tail file
