Repair service for Kiev-88 | Kiev-88-CM cameras.

1. Rebuilding and tuning of the shutter mechanism improves reliability and guarantees much longer life span. Weaker units are being replaced, and better interaction of mechanisms is being set up.
2. Modernization of the braking mechanism allows to work out more accurate shutter speeds and more hard using of the camera. Our tolerances are about 2-5 times less than the factory ones.
3. The installation of the Mirror Lock-up system (MLU) operates independently of the shutter release mechanism. MLU function eliminates any vibration caused by the mirror movement. It is not necessary to use this mode constantly - the usual way of shooting is preserved. Before shooting, you can press the additionally installed MLU button and the mirror will rise, or just press the shutter button and everything will work as usual.
4. Camera mount modernization makes the camera mount more universal for lenses and adapters. The factory mount is not always very accurate, therefore, not all lenses even from Arsenal work correctly with it. All ARAX cameras has the upgraded mount and have no problems working with German Carl Zeiss Jena lenses with a Pentacon Six mount.
5. Treatment the light absorbent internal coating, prevents any external light or flare, resulting in an excellent image contrast. Light seals replacement.
6. Replacement of a special durable, non-reflective black external finish (the original finish is removed by a precision sand blasting process, and then a special new black finish is applied) make the ARAX-60/645 camera stable and lasting. Externally, cameras become dull black without reflective chrome and silver surfaces. This solves the problem of spurious glare from the shiny parts of the camera itself. That especially noticeable when shooting close-ups and using flash units.
7. The solution to the common problem of overlapping frames. The reconstruction and improvement of the mechanism of the film transportation avoid overlapping frames and achieving a more accurate and stable interframe distance.
8. Replacement of the focusing screen at the request of the customer. On the lighter, with or without lines, with split image or without it. Almost to any screen, that was produced at the "Arsenal" factory.
9. We check all lenses for alignment, sharpness, aperture operation, and make sure they have a correct infinity focus. Tuning the lens allows you to get rid of many assembly defects inherent in optics from the factory.
10. Each TTL prism goes through an additional stage of verification and adjustment. This eliminates most assembly and manufacturing defects.
11. The final professional camera inspection by Quality Control Engineer for full functionality is performed including a compatibility test with various German CZJ lenses.
All of this hard work yields a new camera, with a reliable, accurate shutter mechanism, and silky smooth operation. Add the most reliable lens mount, the most accurate metering, and the brightest viewfinder on the market to the new spectacular look of the camera and you know you are using the best medium format KIEV camera.
