Hello, I have searched this section with no luck. I recently picked up a Kiev 16C-3 16mm camera with a exposed roll of film that I will have developed and scanned soon. I am just looking for any information regarding this camera. Like years produced, how many, etc. I have searched Google as well with no luck. Just curious on what I got myself into.

 

Here is the camera:

Thanks for the info Rafael. Is this somewhat a common camera in Europe/Russia? Or is it one that not a lot of people know about?

It is quite common, but not popular. Krasnogosk-3 seems to be best of Russian 16mm cameras.

It was an almost identical copy of the US Bell & Howell Magazine 200 cameras from the 50s and 60s, except that the lens mount thread is different.

As an example:
