Kiev-30, 16 mm Submini, Passport, Box

Russian Kiev-30 16 mm Submini Camera

In 1960 Arsenal factory in Kiev, Ukraine decided to add a 16 mm still camera to their well known 35 mm Kievs (Contax copies) and medium format Salyuts (Hasselblad copies). This time is was Minolta-16, which served as a prototype. The original 16 mm line included Kiev-Vega (1960-1961) and Kiev-Vega 2 (1961-1964). Then, in 1974 this model returned as a new and improved Kiev-30.

I've seen eBay ads calling this camera a KGB or a spy camera. Well, the KGB and the spies did better than this. The 16mm Kievs were nice small cameras, but not as advanced as the real KGB equipment - F-21.
