Unlike the later KIEV models with brass gears, the SALUT cameras had one made of steel.This is much more stable and durable.

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

First models of Salyut were probably the near copies of Hasselblad 1000F or 1600F. Salyut-S is the very modified model of the first Salyut,

and a modified lens mount which has the same thread and adds to the known shutter adjustment piston. This allows complete automation of the lenses and the use of extension tubes and a teleconverter. The Salyut / Kiev 88 models are sometimes affectionately called "Hasselbladski" because of their resemblance to a Hasselblad.

The Salut was the first attempt of the Soviet camera industry to produce a sophisticated medium format camera. It was probably a copy of the Hasselblad 1600. The Soviets claimed that both the Hasselblad and Salut came from a Nazi prototype, but none of these alleged predecessors were ever seen, so this origin is doubtful.

These cameras were very expensive with 400 rubles, which corresponded to the average Soviet citizen a salary of 6 months. This means that the production was very limited and these cameras are rare.
