In 1960 Arsenal factory (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 for the Kiev-Vega.

Later the camera was slightly improved and became the Kiev-Vega 2.

Some call this camera a “KGB” or a “spy” camera. Well,
the KGB and the spies did better than this. The Kiev-Vega 2 was just a cool
small camera, nice as a present or as a toy.
