    I have a kiev88 it broke on the third roll of film. The shutter jammed. Charley if you want it it’s yours. I’ve been looking for a sucker to take it off my hands for years.

    No thanks but thanks or the offer and the info. I just adapted a roll film 'roid to take 46mm rolled up in a 120 paper. I think thats about as much new project as i can stand at the moment.

    thanks for the kiev info for sure. I never could find anyone who didnt have a vested interest to tell me what they were like. That russian glass is pretty good though, I would hang on to that and look for an old hassy body to marry to it.

    mysteryscribe, would love to know more about your Polaroid conversion -- I have a 150 and am hunting for an affordable 110 or (better) a 110A. I've seen some instructions for a Polaroid conversion that seem to require a home machine shop, and have been scared off of trying something like that myself. I would love to be able to use one of those big Rodenstock lenses without having to cannibalize it from its original setting!
