Soviet star

View from the end of my garden taken with the Russian Kiev 60 camera

A few months ago i purchased a beautiful russian (?) Kiev 60 camera from a local charity shop. I decided to take a series of test photos with the camera to show what it can do. Here is the first of three images taken using the Kiev 60.

I must admit that i am impressed by the quality of the image. The Volna-3 lens seems to have a good balance of contrast and sharpness. I used Ilford 3200 film which can be a little unforgiving if exposed badly but the shutter speeds seem very accurate.

Overall I'm very impressed by the results and the next film i want to put through the camera will be much slower - I'm just waiting for the horrible rainy weather to go!
