Gareth Blackstock Posted May 4 Share Posted May 4 So I was lucky enough to get hold of a few of these interesting 16mm cameras. Built between the late 60's and mid 80's (?) they seemed quite interesting to read about. Of the cameras I bought only one was working, very loudly and with fluctuating speeds. Taking them apart I considered the build quality to be pretty good, easy to get to everything, seemingly basic design but well executed I think. I immersed the clockwork gears in a sonic cleaner, which did an amazing job. Then a light lubricate and reassembly, and I was quite surprised to hear it literally "purr" I added the photos and process to my website, hopefully if future film enthusiasts find such a camera they can easily find some information on it. https://canon-s8-repair.yolasite.com/Kiev-16U.php https://canon-s8-repair.yolasite.com/kiev-16ue.php Cheers, Gareth Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
