FED

"FED" was a copy of the German camera "Leica II". It was issued by the Kharkiv Felix Dzerzhinsky Labor Committee, created from former homeless children by the famous teacher Anton Makarenko.
The range finder and the viewfinder (such as "Albada") had different sighting windows; The viewfinder had an increase of 0.44 ×, the rangefinder had a base of 38 mm and an increase of 1.0 ×.
To charge the camera with film, the bottom cover was removed, both standard cassettes and two-cylinder ones with a wide opening opened were used.
Synccontact and the self-timer was not.
It was completed with a 3.5 / 50 "FED" lens (in the post-war years "Industar-10" 3.5 / 50) in a folding frame (the so-called "tube lens") with the following diaphragm values: 3.5, 4.5, 6 , 3, 9, 12,5, 18 (the first experimental batch of lenses was produced at VOOMPe, and calculated in GOI). Mounting of lenses threaded - M39 × 1.
The working section is non-standardized, approximately 28.8 mm, so interchangeable lenses required individual alignment.

    The vendor shipped with poor documentation, so the customs obviously blocked the package. I wrote to the vendor four days ago, but he is disappeared. He took my money but i'll never have my things.
