The Kiev-30M is a subminiature camera for 16mm film in proprietary cassettes produced by Arsenal. The camera is a very close variant on the preceding Kiev-30: the main differences are that the Kiev-30M lacks the Kiev-30's PC flash socket and manual exposure calculator. There are also some minor differences in body style between the two cameras.
