Kiev 60 is a medium format SLR film system camera manufactured by Arsenal Factory, in Kiev, former USSR.

The Kiev 60 is inspired by the Pentacon Six, but it has been very substantially re-designed. So the Kiev 60 is a newer design than the Pentacon Six. They share the same principles and the lens of bayonet but nothing else. So, you can use many of the Pentacon Six lenses. It's the Kiev 60. It's one of the best deals for anyone wanting to do amateur medium format photography. With the prism, it looks, feels and handles like an overgrown 35mm SLR.
