Question about Instant Cameras
I have a Kiev 60 camers which works fine except for one problem. The film does not completely advance. There seems to be an overlap of about 3/16 of an inch on each picture. I can upload a pic to show what I mean if need be. Is there some place where I could find repair manuals online to see what might be causing this? Or is this a common problem with Kiev 60s? Does it sound like an expensive repair? Thanks, Dennis Myhand
Actually, this is a frame spacing problem, which is caused by the difference in the thickness of the backing paper of film which is available in Russia as opposed to what is available to us in the United States. Evidently the Russian film backing paper is thicker, therefore it travels farther when the winding lever is cranked. I found the following site which will show you how to test your Kiev 60 to see if you need to Kalibrate the frame spacing in your Kiev.
After making the determination that your Kiev needs to be Kalibrated, go to this site:
which will show nice, clear, beautifully detailed images and clearly written instructions to allow you to get into your Kiev. Follow the instructions and save yourself some money!!!!!
