Meet My Kiev 88:
This is one of my newer babies, and was given to me by my grandfather for the holidays. It is a total beast. Seriously, you could kill someone with this camera. One time, a friend of mine walked into it and seriously injured herself yet the Kiev 88 was fine. I sincerely believe that if I dropped it on the ground it would dent the pavement. That being said, it takes truly beautiful photos, which makes sense since it’s basically a Russian copy of a Hasselblad. You can see some photos I’ve taken with my Kiev 88 here and here.
There were several recent posts/questions regarding Kiev 88s for sale on Ebay; I highly recommend jumping on that.
