Larger negatives and transparencies for superior enlargements and reproductions. Hand-held portability together with the creative freedom of ground glass composing. A choice of subject uninhibited by constraints of either image size or equipment. These are the advantages of medium format photography. These are also the advantages of the ARAX Single Lens Reflex Camera. And whether you are an advancing photo-hobbyist or already a professional, the versatile ARAX is the perfect interface between your hand, your eye and your art.

ARAX cameras are hand selected new KIEV 60 and Kiev 88 CM cameras that undergo an extensive mechanical upgrade. These lucky candidates are re-assembled, adjusted, tested, and matched to provide superior interchangeability between the magazine backs, camera bodies, prism viewfinders and lenses. Inferior aspects of the basic Kiev designs are reinforced and/or replaced.

Our MLU (Mirror Lock Up) system operates independently of the shutter button. You can lift the mirror separately without using the shutter release. When you push the shutter release, the mirror lifts up automatically as usual. Mirror Lock-up system (MLU) system eliminates any vibration caused by the mirror movement when doing macro photography or when working with long focal length lenses.

All ARAX cameras have a unique durable light-absorbent black finish (the original Arsenal factory chrome version is also available in same price), and maximum viewfinder brightness is achieved via our special focusing screen with a frame size scale. And last but not least, every new ARAX camera kits comes with our specially designed high impact ARAX camera bag, perfectly defending your precious ARAX gear from impact and accidental falls.
