anyone use the Kiev 16mm cameras? One is spring wound. Another is electric. There is also one called the Alpha which is C Mount and spring wound and another which C Mount and electric( i guess an upgraded Alpha, kinda looks like an VCR camera) anybody ever use these? I wonder what the quality of these are? equivalent to K3?

 

With the C Mount 16mm cameras, can these take all C mount or some c mount. I ask because I wonder if some lenses would hit the shutter? i find these camera intriguing and would like to hear anyones stories using them. I believe these all take 100ft rolls.

Hi!!

 

The alpha has a crystal element before the shutter so no lens will hit it.

I use both Kievs, Alpha, 16U and 16E. Are like K3 as you said.

Here is some footage with alpha camera and infrared film:

 

And that is with K3 and Kiev 16:

 

Kievs are nice toy cameras :]

 

Bests!!
