Week 324 - Kiev-10
The Kiev 10 is the forerunner of the Kiev 15 that I used in the first year of my project. Both share a unique lens mount, and lenses which have no aperture control on them, the aperture is set by a control on the camera body. The metal focal plane shutter is an unusual fan design.
There is an automatic exposure system, but sadly on this example the coupling between the body and the lens is broken, so not only does the auto exposure not work, but there is no way of using the lens other than at full aperture.
