Thanks. There seems to be several models of Arax, what are you using Miran?

Arax has two cameras, the big SLR type one, based on Kiev-6/60 series, which itself was a Pentacon 6 clone. The Hassie type one is based on Salyut/Kiev 88/88CM series, which were Hasselblad 1000/500 clones.

Thanks all. Smile

Yes, there are two models, one is a P6 "clone", the other an early Hasselblad clone. I have the second one with P6 mount. It's a great camera. Smile

Great images. #1, #2 & #3 are best for me.

ive heard the p6 clone was of very high quality. i strongly considered getting one before deciding against the bulk. but that aside, you cant argue with the results, and being able to use these wonderful lenses on a 'new' cam is really great.

Yes, that's one of the drawbacks of such a system. You carry a heavy bag, almost always need a tripod and you need time for each shot. On the other hand this (and the fact a 5 roll of film can take only 12 frames) discourages you from taking snapshots.

And yeah, that "new" camera thing. I thought long about whether I should buy an old used camera or a "new" Arax but in the end the idea of having something new won. And I'm not sorry I went with Arax. So far it's working perfectly. Smile

If you ask any repairman that works on the Kiev 60/6c and the Pentacon Six they will tell you the cameras are absolutely not clones of each other. The internal mechanisms are completely different.

The images are wonderful. Very nice contrast.

Actually, you are quite right. I've taken a look inside both Kiev 6/60s and Pentacon 6. Clone is not the right word. Same mount, and based off the same idea (a medium format camera that you hold up eye-level like an SLR).
