Salut-S (or Salyut-S, Salut-C = Salut-C) is a medium format SLR film system camera, manufactured by Arsenal Factory, in Kiev, Ukraine, formerly USSR and produced between 1972-1980, quantity 30.000 .

First models of Salyut were probably the near copies of Hasselblad 1000F or 1600F. Salut-S is the very modified model of the first Salut, and has a modified version. This allows full automation of the lenses and the use of extension tubes and a teleconverter. The Salut / Kiev 88 models are sometimes affectionately known as the "Hasselbladski" due to their resemblance to a Hasselblad.

The Salyut was the first attempt to produce a sophisticated medium format camera. It was probably a near copy of the Hasselblad 1600. The Soviets claimed that both the Hasselblad and the Saliut were derived from a Nazi prototype, but none of these were originally believed to be dubious. These cameras were very expensive at 400 rubles, which represents 6 months salary to the average Soviet citizen. This means that production very limited and These cameras are rare.
