The Kiev-35A is a miniature compact camera with an automatic exposure time setting. It is intended for amateur photography.
Used in the camera is a 35-millimeter film in the standard magazines (36 shots of 24×36 mm on film of 1.6 m in length).
The five-element lens MC KORSAR 2.8/35 (MC KOPCAP), built into the camera, ensures the image of a high quality. The lens stopping-down limit is 16. The lens moves out to the operating position when the front cover is opened.
The central inter lens shutter with an electronic exposure control operates automatically and provides the exposure times over the range from 1/500 to 4 s (step-less).

The viewfinder is optical with a luminous frame which limits the scene. Available in the viewfinder field of vision is a scale and a pointer which indicates the exposure time automatically preset by the shutter over the range from 1/500 to 1/30 s.

The lens is focused with the aid of a distance scale over the range from 1m to oo.

The frame counter reads the number of shots made and is reset automatically to the initial position upon opening the camera back. In so doing, the shutter must be released.

The camera exposure meter ensures the automatic exposure time setting depending on the brightness of the subject photographed at the preset values of a film sensitivity and of a diaphragm. The operating range of brightness of the built-in exposure meter is from 6.4 to 6400 cd/m².

The film sensitivity range is from 25 to 800 units of GOST/ISO.

A battery or a set of cells rated to 6V (overall dimensions: diameter 13 mm, height 20.5 mm) type PX27 is used as a power source.
The camera operates over the temperature range from minus 15 to plus 45°C (when the camera is completed with a power source whose operating temperature range is less than the above-mentioned one, the camera operating range is limited respectively).
The camera is provided with a synchroniser for operation on combination with flash lamps.
The camera back is removable.

The features of the KIEV-35A camera are a simplicity in handling, compactness (101.5x64x32.5 mm) and little mass (up to 200 g).
