I just received the camera yesterday. Everything is working great! Thank you again for fixing up my Arax :)

Just wanted to let you know I received the lens yesterday. It arrived safely and in excellent condition. Thank you so much. Much love from America, and Slava Ukraini!
I have received the Arax-60 kit in the mail, it arrived in wonderful condition. Thank you again and I wish you all the best!
In the middle of a war, under fire from Russia- in fact, under siege, Gevorg Vartanyan and his crew continue to serve the needs of their customers by doing business in the first place and doing business according to the same high standards that they had before their country was brutally attacked. Packages are shipped and they arrive promptly. Merchandise is sold. Repairs are made. They deserve your full support and confidence. Few companies have done as well under considerably less trying circumstances. Highly recommended to all.
Just to let you know that the item arrived well this week! Thank you very much for your great service in this difficult times, really fantastic! We'll keep supporting you.
My Arax 60 prism arrived today! Brand new! The package/box perfect! Proof of the Ukrainian people determination! Thanks a lot Gervog and Ukrposhta! SLAVA UKRAINE!
All the items you sent work perfectly even after two years. I really like your work and always take a look at your website from time to time
Just like to say I've received my 6C today and I'm very impressed with the work done, absolutely amazing transformation. Say a big thank you to your guys and I wish your country a peaceful existence.
My ARAX 60 camera body arrived today! I liked this camera so much that this is the second body that I bought from ARAXPHOTO. Thanks, Gervog, for the top class, professional service!
I got package today. It seems with no problems. Thanks for your business.
Just a quick note to say the lenses and accessories arrived safely, and they are fantastic. Thank you so much, and also thank you for the excellent packaging and dispatch.
The Jupiter tellephoto arrived today, perfectly packaged and in perfect condition. Looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. Thanks so much for providing these historical lenses at affordable prices for people who still shoot medium format film.
I received my Saluyt S today. It looks new, after service, working perfect. Very proffesional work, very nice looking and working camera. Thank you Gevorge and everybody else at Arax in Kiev, exelent camera service. Thank you very much. Arax are highly recomended for super proffesional work. Even the flash socket works. Greetings.
A big thank you to Gevorg and Araxphoto, for the great service, putting my beloved Kiev 88 back into service. With fresh new parts, the camera will out live me. It was worth the investment, with 6 lenses and accessories to keep this camera going, now with a resurgence in film photography.
This is just a quick note to say the Mir 26 has arrived safe and sound... and with filters too... which was a lovely surprise!
I received the ARAX 60 today in blue. As with my other ARAX cameras, it is perfect in every way. Your attention to detail is remarkable. The non-metered prism finder is clearer and brighter than on any other medium format reflex camera I own. I truly appreciate your willingness to build the custom model to my specifications. Thanks for all that you do.
I received my kiev 88 today.
I receive today my lens (Mir 65mm for Kiev6) quick and perfect service. I had previously sent my Kiev 6 Body for a repair. Very good service, very convenient prices, the shipping is safe and quick, communication with the team of Arax service is easy!
Congratulations to you! I recommand +++
I just received my ARAX camera today in the mail. Everything looks great, and I'm excited to finally load some film into it tomorrow when I go on vacation!
The package arrived yesterday in good condition. Everything looks VERY fine so far. Smooth operating camera and back, again. :-) I will doing some test-shooting next days.
My very fine prism arrived in the mail this afternoon. It will look beautiful atop my Arax 60 #2. Thanks so much for your responsiveness to customer requests, your ability to find the finest cameras, lenses, and accessories, and your promptness. I truly appreciate all that you have done for me this year. I am forever in your debt
Both cameras have arrived today, professionally packed and everything works all right. Once more, many thanks for your big favour!
I received my camera well! It feels brand new! Thanks for the good and fast service!
My second ARAX 60 arrived yesterday looking every bit as perfect and beautiful as the first one I purchased from you this year. I have to hand it to you, ARAX is able to take a camera made many decades ago and restore it to a camera that looks like it rolled off the assembly line yesterday. I can wear either one of these cameras proudly as I take my daily walks in search of something worthy enough for my ARAX to capture. Thanks to you much for two pristine, beautiful medium format cameras in an era when film cameras in the USA appear to be all but forgotten.
I asked ARAX to service and modify one of my Kiev60 to the 6 x 4.5 format. I am super happy with the communication and the service. Just received it this week.
My camera and accessories arrived on Monday, and I have to say that I'm most impressed by the fit and finish of the ARAX-60 MLU/SE (Special Edition) Kit. It is all of what you promised, and I can't wait to run some rolls through it. It's great to know that there is still a way to buy a new, quality medium format camera in 2021! Olive green leather is perfect and makes it a real head-turner.
Item arrived in Singapore safely and in well packed box. The project was to mount the prism onto my Rolleiflex 2.8f with a proper adapter. Condition of the prism was superb. Thousand thanks to Araxfoto for the infomations and safe shipment till reached the destination. Simply EXCELLENT services. Just can't wait to try in on my camera.
I just wanted to let you know that my order arrived this morning and in great condition.
Thank you so much for your support and I will use your service again.
The lens has been delivered today (6 days), everything fine! Thanks for your good service.
The waist level viewfinder and other parts I had ordered arrived today. Thank you for your work and for your dedication for analog photography!
The camera has arrived! It's super!
Just wanted to let you know that the viewfinder arrived today.
Finally the camera has arrived and it's beautiful... More, it's sexy!
Saturday the parcel arrived! The customs jut let it pas, may be they had to much to so with Xmas shipments etc .... so I was lucky!
The camara arrived!! Thank you very much again for your efforts and the professional and uncomplicated business! Hope to meet again! Have a good time and health for you and your family! Wish you success!
I have received the camera and I must say I am really happy about it, it came professionally packed and the camera is brand-new!
Hello Arax camera engineers,
I received my Kiev back today and just wanted to thank you for doing a beautiful job of bringing it back to life! I'm very much looking forward to trying it out. Will be nice to be able to trust it at last.
Dear Mr Vartanyan, the lenses you repaired were returned intact and i am extremely satisfied with your work.
Camera arrived today. Put a roll of film in, shot the whole roll and developed it. Totally impressed with how perfectly and smooth everything worked and the great finish on the camera. You undoubtedly deserve the great reputation you have. This just may be my favorite medium format camera.
I like to inform you that my ARAX60 body arrived well last Friday on 17th July 20.
I sent a Salyut-S for shutter repair, MLU modification and CLA to Gevorg Vartanyan. Communication pleasant, clear and effective. Work what done rapidly. Any customization is possible. Fast enough shipment from Kiev. Highly recommended.
Outstanding product. I've been on the hunt for a tilt shift adapter for awhile, but they go up to $300 or $400 in some cases. Because I only want to use it occasionally for the DOF 'toy effect', I wasn't looking to spend that much. Found a Nikon F to Sony E on this website for $70, and I'm more than pleased with it. Great quality build, unbeatable price.
I received my ARAX-60 a few days ago with all the accessories. I'm very pleased and was definitely the highlight of my week. Araxfotos is reliable and keep in constant contact throughout the process. I highly recommend.
Arax are reliable and proffesional camera builders and camera repair specialists, one of the very few, mastering old techniques. All of the Arax, including my 1960 made Kiev 4 with a built in lightmeter works perfect even the meter does, great camera. My Saluyt camera are another great Arsenal/Kiev built masterpiece, great camera. Agreat place to shop photo gear and ask for service, the best people doing first class jobs.
I just reveived my package with all the accessories for my KIEV-88 and I couldn't be happier. The shipment took a reasonable amount of time and arrived with no customs' issues and with everything inside in perfect conditions. Excellent experience!
today I received the camera with the magazine. Everything is ok and works properly. Thank you very much.
Just to say that the Salyut arrived safe and sound and all working nicely - many thanks!
i had get last week my standart Arax CM kit. and i have to say this camera is nice. the way to use it is a bit differnet to the hasselblad, but i enjoy this way much more. and so i think i gonna have a super time with this camera.
and special thx to Gevorg for the super support.
I sent a Kiev 60 with some problems (shutter didn't work, mold in prism) for a complete CLA, Mirror lockup, black finish, interior flock, eyepiece. I sent it from the Netherlands.
I received my Hasselblad prism finder eyecup today and it is perfect! Thanks again.
I received your camera on 14/01/2020. It took about 40 days to East Asia. Package was simple but solid. Arax 60 seems like a military truck. Operation is smooth and easy. Thank you for bringing Kiev legacy to 21th century.
Simply lovely camera, lens and kit (2 finders, 80mm lens, and other accessories). The camera functions flawlessly. I couldn't be happier or more satisfied. The best.
Replacement rubber eyecup fits my Hasselblad PM-5 perfectly and arrived within five days.
A satisfied customer, many thanks.
My Arax 60 camera body arrived yesterday. Very nice camera. Again top service from Arax! Thanks!
The camera has arrived in very good condition, a very nice piece and everything work fine. Looking forward to test it over the weekend. Thanks a lot for the fast shipping!
Just got your adapter today, same day as an Estonian "straight" ring for Nikon. Expecting one from China to M4/3.
I have just received the spot prism for Kiev 88 that I ordered from Arax Foto. Nice accessory, much better than the standard meter prism! Very competent service. Thanks!
Just a quick note to say that my camera turned up safe and sound, thank you so much for the excellent work that you have carried out getting my baby working again, your work is first class and the speed you fixed it was amazing, I would recommend you to anyone that has a broken Kiev or just needs an upgrade or service. Many thanks again.
The package has arrived and the camera is in top shape, I am very much looking forward to creating many more memories with it. Again, thank you for your excellent and swift service!
I just wanted to let you know that the parcel has been picked up. Everything is working fine, I ran two rolls through in last two weeks and alll photos are pretty nice. Thank you for your service.
Good price. Excellent service.
I have received my camera today in perfect order ,thank you very much!
Great contact, fast shipping, great camera, I recommend.
Thanks a lot for the great ARAX 60 MLU. It is a lot of fun to use and works like a charm now. Communication and parcel went smooth. :)
Many thanks for your recent repair of my Kiev 88CM. Shutter and mechanism are smooth and perfect now. Your work transforms Kiev 6x6 cm cameras into pro quality. I Suggest anyone having Kiev medium format cameras that need full repair or just an upgrade to improve them to send them to you for your service.
Thank you for the prompt dispatch of the parcel which I collected from the customs office today. Thanks to your invoice I didn?t have to pay any duty either, so that was good. Also thank you for your creful packing, that was quite a work of art I must say, and I didn?t really want to destroy it by unpacking :-), but I had to.
Great team. Great work.
I received your parcel this morning witht he lens repaired. It runs smoothly and nice like an almost new one. Many thanks for the job done.
I received my Kiev a few days ago and have had a chance to run a roll of film through it this weekend. Everything came out just perfect; the camera functions like it is new. The MLU upgrade is tremendous and really improves the camera for tripod use; wish I had gotten it done years ago. I am very pleased with the work you did.
The camera arrived ok! Thank you.
It has been already 2 years since I let my old Kiev 80 repaired/upgraded by Arax and since then I have used the camera a lot without any issue! Overall I have been very satisfied with the camera after Arax service, that consisted of Shutter mechanism repair, Complete CLA, Focusing screen replacement to brightest and Flock camera body interior. I recommend!
Today I received the magazine. I checked it and the transport mechanism works properly. Thank you very much for your service. Customs did not charge me.
My Arax CM/MLU I got from you is still working very well. It's never missed a beat - a true testament to the technicians who you have working for you. I also use that Arsat C lens regularly, most often with an adapter on my Sony-A cameras. All the best for the future and season's greetings.
Excellent Kiev 88 Shutter Repair and internal clean and adjust. Your work is always top class as has been done for me through the years.
Camera arrived well packed and with good insulation. I always suggest your company to other photographers for good equipment, repairs and service.
Thank you for a first class repair to my old camera.
I've received the lenses today, and it looks pretty good! I really appreciated that you did include filters and lens caps on the lenses, thank you very much! The brighter focus screen did make all the difference, well worth the investment!
The camera arrived a few days ago and it's beautiful and I'm enjoying taking and developing a couple rolls of film with it.
Thank you for the Arax 60 I purchased recently. It is a pleasure to use. The metered prism is convenient and accurate and with the modern focus screen very bright. I have 3 P6's and only 1 is reliable. Not worrying about frame overlap and certain shutter speeds that are inaccurate is wonderful.
Thank you so much for the repair of my camera, amazing work!
Thank you very much as always. i reaaly do appreciate the excellenct service you provide. if you ever do get a tilt shift adapter for either the 88 or 88cm that i can use on my cameras i would like to buy it. I tell everyone about how wonderfull your service is. I look forward to buying more from you in the future.
Arrived today. Brilliant lens. Thank you for your services
I got the package early today. These lenses look so beautiful!! Thank you so much!
My Kiev 88 finallay arrived yesterday, again great job you guys did!!!!! I just wanted you to know. By the way, I didn?t have to pick it at custom control, it came with usually postman :-D
Bonjour, je viens de recevoir mon appareil photo Arax 60. Il est magnifique. Je remercie Araxfoto pour son service cordial et rapide.
Just a short note: Thanks a lot for your effort! The camera works great again!
Thanks a lot for the excellent work on my Salyut-S! The very best recommendations for Gevorg and his staff at ARAX!
Very pleased to tell you that my Kiev 88 was returned to me today 19/4/18
Just to let you know that the package arrived safely yesterday and I'm delighted with the camera (and it went through customs without a problem too!).
I upgraded my Kiev88cm from ARAX years ago, and that's a very glad experience! The body works very well.
The journey took a little longer that I had hoped for, but today I received the camera. It's beautiful and on first sight everything seems to work fine. Thank you very much for this pleasant transaction!
I have received the camera today safely. It just works great and I really happy. Thank you so much for your great handling and support.
I ordered a wide strap for Kiev 88 camera last week, arax camera outfit case and 1/4 inch adapter. I am very pleased with the purchase and speed of delivery and professional service.
For your information and for future customer notice, I have received and installed the ordered ARAX screens on my Hasselblad (this you know it works) and on my YASHICA MAT 124G (just need a little grinding). It is ok, the only challenge is to adjust with wedges to keep the focusing plan as with original screen.
I would like to inform you that the items have arrived just now, and it's all OK, even the inserts for focusing screen (I was afraid that our postal services could damage them).
Be carefull in ordering! I have ordered Arax camera new model the same model that is in the web site. I recieved old tipe of kiev 88 camer with marker - MADE IN USSR not made in Ukraine. This is body is 30 years olt! I hope the camera will working. But i dont know how long.
[Arax] When you ask the special made Kiev-88 camera body with screw mount (!) and MLU, not presented in website - you receive it. Kiev-88 screw mount cameras (which you asked) was produced many years ago, but was upgraded now, after your order, made for you exactly after detail asking and payment from you. Of course it has full ARAX warranty and will work well. Warranty card, camera manual and Do&Dont's included to your parcel. Please read them before using your camera. If you not happy with your purchase, you can return it according our return policy.
Die Kamera ist angekommen,
Alles gut angekommen! Wir wunschen ein schones Weihnachtsfest und ein gutes neues Jahr !
Thanks a lot for those eye cups. Got them today. They fits perfect on my PME51 and HC-4 prisms.
Vielen Dank fur Ihre Bemuhungen ! Das Objektiv ist heute eingetroffen und es ist alles in Ordnung !
I have a chance to put a couple rolls of film through the camera, andI couldn't be more pleased with the quality and functionality of the system and upgrades. Thank you very much!
I wanted to let you know that the package arrived and I received it yesterday at the post office. ARAX 60 body looks beautiful! :) I hope I can try it soon.
I've received my Kiev body and it's perfect, thanks for your work!
Great and fast support regarding questions about products, fast shipping, and great products! Really enjoying the new split focus screen on my Kiev 6C. Thanks a lot!
I have tested this camera with four rolls of film and I am very satisfied. This is my favourite camera. Thank you!
Thank you for this product. Excellent quality. I will recommend you to my friends!!!!
I have received the camera back today! Thank you so much it looks great. The winding of the shutter feels more solid and I was easily able to load a roll with the new take up sprocket. The screen is also a wonderful improvement and the lens looks and operate as it should. I can't thank you enough! Hope all is well on your side of the globe
Received package, thank you! The adapter fits well on the lens and on the camera. Thank you for doing this work!
Âer Adapter ist heute gut angekommen (zollfrei). Mit freundlichen Grussen
Thank you once again! My ARAX-60 MLU/SE (Special Edition) Kit has arrived safely, along with the Mir-26, 3.5/45 wide-angle lens. This camera is a pure beauty and feels as heavy and as solid as a rock.
Best regards to you!
Thank for your repair, the camera is now wonderfully like a young girl!
The camera arrived today and it works just pefect. And it looks as if it was new. Thank you very much for the service.
The camera arrived today, works perfectly! Thanks for the good work and your service.
Quite dissapointed with the communication I had with Arax. Sent some cameras for servicing and had some requests, but were ignored. Got extra services (flock) and charged for them, though I didn't request them. Repairs might be good though, I can't really tell now, only after time and use I can properly judge. Maybe an isolated case, maybe they didn't like me, but I can hardly recommend anyone else their services...
mes commandes sont arrivees tres vite adaptateur et objectif .il ne sest pas passe 1 semaine .l'equipe arax photo et rapide encore merci a eux meme si au debut jai un peu hesite je viens de recommander chez eux . bravo et merci arax photo
The camera arrived today without any custom problems. I am very satisfied and I will happily revert to you if another need shows up.
Guten Tag, ich habe heute das TTL Prisma erhalten. Vielen Dank fur die prompte Erledigung
Lens arrived today! Like very much! Thank you!!
The repaired camera and lens arrived today. Thank you for the great work. They're both good as new.
das Packet ist bei mir gut angekommen, Vielen Dank fur die gute bedienung.
My camera arrived and it works perfect, just as the tilt and shift adapter does :). Thanks :)
Both built quality and image quality are very good, something built to last, just like all old vintage lenses. Customer service is top notch, which makes me really confident in buying more. And thanks for the sweets!
I just received the parcel and everything seems working smoothly: over the next weekend I will try this nice piece of equipment.
I just received the 150mm lens that I purchased from you recently. Oh...and thanks for the focusing screens as well.
I have received my repaired Kiev in 2 weeks after shipment. Now it works like new. Thank you, very much.
Your lens for an affordable price is wonderful. Thank you for that.
The item arrived today without any additional taxes. Everything is okay and I’m happy. Thank you very much.
This morning, I received the parcel from you. I soon checked and found out every function works well,
and MLU system is beautifully installed. Thank you very much!!
I am so much pleased with your repair work and business, as I will share your business information with my photography friends and some classic camera shops I know well. Thank you again, and hope all of you peace and prosperity.
Just got my film back. It was packed great and works like a charm! Thanks so much.
Thanks so much! Camera delivered all received in good working order and looking amazing. Not only that but in my wife's hands for her birthday! You people are amazing!
I received the package yesterday. I am satisfied with the ordered screen. Thank you very much.
Yesterday arrived her package with the ordered material. Everything OK, thank you and I hope to hear for new business. Greetings.
Yesterday I recived my Kiev88 bodies I sent to ARAXFOTO for repair. Both are working fine. The whole process went smooth (beside custom issues - but that's an other story) and fast. Thank you very much !
Today I hold my Arax CM-MLU in my hands. This camera is so awesome. The weekend is coming and I'm excited to test the camera. All my CZJ lenses fits perfectly. Thank you sou much.
I've received the camera without any issues, Shipping was onl eight days. Thanks for the bouns filters. Can't wait for the weather to clear up and test it with my CZJ 4.0/300 Sonnar. Which fit perfectly.
Today I received the camera. I would like to thank you so much. My camera is back in professional life.
You did that very well. Thank you so much again. Also thank you for 6x6 film back. I had that old one with hole on the back, when you can check number on film. This new type looks awesome.
I received ARAX-CM/MLU kit today and I am very pleased! Thank you very much for your professional and quick service, I has been a pleasure buying from you. The bonus filters were a nice surprise too. Thank you again.
Just received my ARAX 60. Very fast shipping and incredible good looking camera. Rock solid shutter sound :-). One week after ordering I'm holding the camera already in my hand (sent from Kiev to Doha). Thank you for the perfect transaction. Highly recommended!
Sent my Kiev 60 for repair a few month ago, shutter mechanism completely stucked, counter was not working for ages, frame spacing was not good as well (11frames instead of 12), well, it was time for an overall check. My camera was sent back less than two weeks after I send it to Arax, which was pretty quick, good communication along the process, and of course the repair & CLA have been fantastically performed. Everything is working perfectly, strongly recommend to invest if you have any issue with your Kiev, a real game changer. Thanks to Arax team for the very good work.
I have received my Kiev 60 flocking kit just a week later. The kit has a nice, unreflective texture, perfect fit and the documentation is good. Thank you, if I need something for my Kiev 60, or a new Arax, I'll be back.
Thank you. The package was received last week - kudos on the secure packaging. Everything certainly arrived safe and sound. :) Also ran a test roll the previous weekend - I no longer have frame overlaps like I did before the CLA! Needless to say, I am very, very pleased.
I've received my new ARAX-CM-MLU/SE without any issues. It looks and works very good. Thanks for the fast delivery.
I've just received the goods, without any issues. It cleared the customs without any problems. Thanks for the fast delivery.
Ordered a MLU body in chrome and received it 10 days later in Atlanta. As always it was well packaged and in excellent condition. You can always expect reliable service and good quality products from Arax. I look forward to doing more business with Gevorg and the Arax team.
The parcel has been delivered at my neighbor on 18 February, without any customs formalities. Everything works fine, I am very satisfied!
I am a true Kievaholic, ARAX is my reliable partner for all of my cameras and lenses. I have always been very pleased with the service throughout many years. I have never had any trouble with gear that was maintained by ARAX again. My first choice.
The camera is since yesterday at home. I feel very pleased with the kit. All in it is really awesome. In a pair of days I will start to shot with it. I want to really thank you for all your efforts. Finally I've only paid 20 ˆ for the taxes. You did it really great. I would like also to congrat you for the great work you're doing with the Kiev cameras and Arsenal lenses. For every need, don't hesitate: you have a friend here in Spain.
Thank you so much for your very prompt and professional service! Dealing with you and your company has been so far an entirely pleasant experience!
I just wanted you to know the viewing screen arrived two days ago. Thankyou! I've installed it on my Hasselblad 500cm and already it's fantastic - at least a stop brighter all over and the rangefinder-like split focus works fantastically with a prism or the waist level finder, even in low light with my F4 lenses. I'm very happy with the improvement.
I'v just received my order today. It works great. Thank you very much for your support and prompt shipping.
I bought a Arax645 a year ago and have been very pleased with both the services offered from ARAX (item was dispatch in less than 4 days and received in perfect condition in France few days later. Good quality product, I advice anybody willing to by a MF camera to go for it With former Volna/Zeiss lenses this provide very high results for a very affordable price too! Thanks ARAX for your support and also for continuing to produce such type of cameras!
I have just received my order today. Thank you very much for your support and prompt shipping.
I have done business with Gevorg at Arax twice and in both cases the items ordered were shipped immediately, arrived in 10 days or less and were well packaged and in new condition when received. Arax produces high quality medium format cameras and accessories and knows how to do business. I would recommend Araxfoto to anyone wanting to get into medium format photography.
I have received the parcel today. The camera works fine. Thanks for all.
I have received the package today with the fixed Arax ARAX-CM/MLU body #4246 with front cap and film back #7034. All arrived in perfect condition. Thank you very much for your work and attention.
I recieved the cameras some week ago (got stuck in Swedish customs...), all seems to be fine! I've shoot one roll with the Salyut with no problems and the Kiev seems to work fine as well. Very nice work indeed! Thank you very much for your service!
I had acquired a used Kiev60 from an ebay vendor in Canada and while it was cosmetically gorgeous it had mechanical issues.
I was very tentative about sending my camera off to be repaired, especially overseas. But it arrived safely and it got back to me in great time. Everything works fantastically and while I was waiting all my questions were answered promptly and clearly. I look forward to many more years of shooting with my Kiev 88 and and will definitley know where to go if I have any more issues.
I have received the item today. The package was good and the item works very fine. I will recommand this adapter to my friends. ;)
I wanted to let you know that I received the shift adaptor in today's mail. I am quite pleased with the quality of the adaptor. The engineering and quality of materials is excellent. The craftsmanship and quality of construction makes this item a far superior choice to any comparable item available on the market today.
Finally I have received the package containing camera strap and filter set, all securely wrapped in bubble foil,so no risk of damage to the content. Due to a strike at the German Post (!!) it took quite a time for the Package to reach my place here in Germany. Thank you very much!
Got a pentacon 6 to eos tilt shift adapter and it arrived very quickly. Already used it to shoot a short film using some old Kiev lenses. This was an excellent buy and well worth the money. Thanks.
Despite my bad translation, I got the right spare parts. Thank you for your efforts. I can only recommend Arax, competently and reliably. Always ready again for orders.
I have received the package at the beginning of last week. Shipping was really fast ! Everything was inside and meticulously packed.Thank you for the excellent service provided !
I received my ARAX-CM-MLU/SE yesterday, in perfect packaging and condition. All i can say is: Thank you Gevorg! From my first writting to you for ordering and advices to your last mail to tell me you were sending my package, everything went just fine. All i'm waiting for now is to try the camera you made me and to enjoy taking great pictures. Many thanks again, Gevorg!
My finder arrived safely this morning. I have just tried it on the camera quickly and it seems excellent. So far as I can see it looks beautifully made and I am sure will work really well. Many thanks and very best wishe.
I collect cameras & still shoot 35mm and medium format. I was 25 years in the photo lab business and am pleasantly surprised how affordable 120 format cameras have become. I have pieced together bronicas for a little over $100. I acquired a used Kiev 6c and loved the quality so much I looked into the line of cameras more. I found Arax and couldnt believe I could get a new 6x4.5 body shipped to me for barely $300 USD including postage. It arrived in 7 days from the Ukraine--amazing. I have a prism & waist level finder and lenses from the Kiev 6c that fit right on which is a tremendous savings. If anyone has apprehensions about ordering from across the pond I would say stop fearing "what ifs" and go for the good deal.
I received the package beginning of this week on Tuesday, all was perfectly fine, product in perfect shape after the travel.
Thank you for your service.
A few days ago I ordered something for my Kiev-88-TTL camera at //araxfoto.com Beside the really friendly and accommodating contact with Arax Photo's owner (G.Vartanyan) I was very much delighted about the prompt and good service. Fast answers to all of my questions, quick delivery shortly after my order, well-packed goods - everything perfect! Before shipping I was told delivery could take about 10 to 20 days. In fact mail arrived after 8 days only, without any damage. Thanks a lot from Eastern Germany! Especially I was very much surprised that I could even order a manual for use (Kiev-88) in German - no re-print, original, fine.
just received my latest order 2x Kiev film backs, absolutely Superb!! it took less than 10 days for them to arrive as did the other two orders, the quality of your items are superb and very affordable as i'm a pensioner and don't have a lot of money to spare, i'm now looking forward to getting a 45mm lens, as they look superb as well, "fantastic service"
Thank you for all the supports. A few days ago I have successfully and safely received the package from Ukraine without any damages or troubles. The finder and body is working properly, and is in good condition.
I will definitely recommend you guys to my camera mates for buying medium format cameras.
Hi, upon your request I can say that today wednesday the 18th I did receive the adaptor in good order and without any tax payments to fulfill! Thank you for the convenient business.
I just received my box all the way from Kiev. I don't know how you did it, but here it is. The funny thing to me is that this came to me all the way to Alaska. Here, we live in the Post Office. We are constantly ordering the things we need and having them shipped here. I once ordered a sweater from Seattle, WA, and it never made it. Another one, - I had a box once delivered from a bike shop in Vermont. Great, wrong CUSTOMER!
I have received a wonderful camera. (less than 1 1/2 week - very fast) The support was very good and convincing. The contact was very friendly. Many Thanks.
Just a quick note to let you know that the ARAX 12X Focussing Screens and the P-Six Fresnel Bright Focussing Screen arrived today in good condition. Thank you for your careful packing and prompt shipping. I'm pleased with my purchases.
Tilt adapter arrived today in less than 10 days! It looks great and works great. Adapter also serves me as "Metabones" on my Sony A7R. It is a great pleasure to do busniess with you!
