Looks like a Russian clone of those Bell and Howell 16mm cameras that took cassette magazines of film.

I'm guessing it takes c-mount lenses, or at least that's what they look like.

I don't think it is. The 16Y/U looks quite different. This model takes 16mm cassettes.

I think it is the Kiev 16C:

No, it's a 16C. No room in there for two 100' spools. It's a cartridge type, so a bit impractical, but you could load the carts yourself, cut down a 100' roll.

Lovely looking thing, though.

I have the Industar-50 in an M42 barrel on my old Zenit-E stills camera. Not a bad bit of glass IIRC.

Yes, it makes my K3 look like a bit of a tank, and a water tank at that, although if you dropped a K3 on your foot it wouldn't do much less damage than a T-34 driving over it.

The model name is actually written on the side, Kiev 16 C-2. As Freya said it's a Russian copy of the Bell and Howell magazine-load 200 series cameras from the 50s and 60s, taking 50 ft cartridges long discontinued. The lens mount is nearly C mount but not quite, something like M27 I think. The camera is spring-driven. Not particularly valuable or rare, but quite compact for a 16mm camera.

Me?

No, a 16ST. I used to work for the military on weapons trials.

Before I dug it out for a documentary it had been in its case for years- it was used for surveillance at 16fps before they had colour video.

I left years before it was given (given!) to one of the photographers who stayed on.

I missed out there; all I got was a K3 from a colleague who moved on to work for a Certain Government Department. And I had to buy my own Steenbeck.
