Hi Larry -- It's an Elikon, made by Belomo in Belarus. I got mine from DVD Technik - http://www.dvdtechcameras.com/ But I see they don't have any right now. It's pretty clearly a copy of the XA, but the lens is unfortunately not as good, with some odd linear distortion near the corners. But it is cute...

My Kiev 4a from 1964:


I bought it in working condition for 25$. The shutter fails after 15 shots with first roll . It was't opened since production. The second curtain stayed unhooked, one of the ribbons was near broken and the shutter mechanism was broken. The repair costs 10$ and now its like new! I love it.

Sorry for my bad english

Hey, Welcome to RFF, feyz! There's absolutely nothing wrong with your English or your Kiev. Very nice!

I guess I'm going to have to start shopping 'round for a new computer. This one is obviously gone belly.up. On my monitor, all these decrepit ol' shooters look ready to go!!

Not the last one that I have bought, but a real nice user. Tried on a non-vintage lens. (forgive me, I am so weak, a serial GAS victim).

That was a good price for a '64 in nice condition.

By the time I got the light leak taken care of I'd gotten to tired of the thing to look at it. I sold it to a member here.
I replaced it with my Iskra...which has a light leak.

Another shot of my 4am. This time with a Helios 103 and to my surprise the Voigtlander VC meter fits on the 4am.

My Zorki 1D with a J8 Lens, a Hoya K2 Yellow Filter and a S&W Lens Hood. Looks pro, I wish the user was too.

10 cameras but not a single digital camera to take photos of them... So I'm using my webcam instead! Here are my Zorki 4 and Kiev 3a.
