The following operations are performed by professional technicians on all ARAX cameras and their component parts. These operations are a part of the extensive re-work and upgrade process performed on all hand selected ARAX cameras:

1. A rebuild and upgrade of the shutter mechanism improves reliability and guarantees a much longer life span.  
2. This rebuild and adjustment of the shutter mechanism results in precise shutter operation and the most accurate exposures.  
3. The installation of a Pentacon Six lens twist-lock mount in replacement of the standard Kiev B mount.  
4. The installation of a Mirror Lock-up system which operates independently of the shutter release mechanism. This feature eliminates any vibration caused by the mirror movement when doing macro photography or when working with long focal length lenses.  
5. The fitting of a special tripod plate for more reliable shutter speed mechanism operation when using a tripod with 3/8 inch thread. Adapter for 1/4 inch tripod thread is also included.  
6. The replacement of the standard metal shutter with a black cloth focal plane shutter.  
7. The ARAX camera is treated with a light absorbent internal coating, preventing any external light or flare, resulting in excellent image contrast.  
8. The upgrade to a special durable, non-reflective black external finish (the original chrome finish is removed by a precision sand blasting process, and then a special new black finish is applied) make the ARAX camera both durable and attractive.  
9. The installation of special focusing screen, resulting in maximum viewfinder brightness, which also includes horizontal and vertical lines.  
10. The fitting of an ergonomic side shutter release button for smoother shutter operation, threaded for a standard cable release.  
11. The installation of a new, redesigned rapid-winding crank providing smooth film advance and shutter cocking.  
12. The reassembly and adjustment of the film advance mechanism and examination for accurate frame spacing gives the ARAX its smooth film advance.  
13. We examine each film magazine for any light leaks.  
14. The calibration of the camera body and the magazine working distance is done as well as the relative positions for both the body and magazine to assure interchangeability.  
15. We check all lenses for alignment, sharpness, aperture operation, and make sure they have a correct infinity focus.  
16. Our technicians disassemble the prism viewfinder, and eliminate any manufacturing defects.  
17. Examination of the light metering controls takes place as well as various other adjustments of the prism viewfinders.  
18. A professional camera inspection for full functionality is performed including a compatibility test with various German CZJ lenses.  
All of this hard work yields a new GEM of a camera, with a reliable and accurate shutter mechanism, and silky smooth operation. Add the most reliable lens mount, the most accurate metering, and the brightest viewfinder on the market to the new spectacular look of the camera and you know you are using the BEST KIEV available!
