The Kiev-30 is a subminiature camera of Soviet production. For transport in the vest pocket it is collapsible to 3/4 of its size. On the camera back is a two slice analog calculator for shutter/aperture determination with ASA-value and weather symbols as input variables. Its concept is a little like that of the Minolta-16, but it has the advantage of having a third thumb-wheel for focusing that appears when the camera is opened for use. It was the first Kiev subminiature camera that uses cassettes with unperforated film to achieve a larger frame size, but even Minolta 16 cassettes may fit.
