Produced by the Arsenal factory in Ukraine, the Kiev 88 was a slight revision of the Salyut (which was a duplication of the Hasselblad 1600 F). The Kiev 88 is one of the most well-known Kiev cameras. It's best known as an inexpensive entry-level medium format SLR. There are many affordable, high-quality lenses available for Kiev-88 cameras—the most popular being the Arsat 30mm f/3.5 fisheye lens (priced around $200). The Kiev 88 originally used a screw thread but was later modified to take the Pentacon Six Mount (this version is called the Kiev 88СМ).  Other companies offered the Kiev 88 manufactured under their own label, without any changes to the underlying camera, like Cambridge Camera Company in NYC, which offered a Kiev 88 package under Cambron Pro Six.
