I am an Soviet and Russian camera collector residing in State of Illinois, USA. I have only somewhat recently started collecting (since May 2007) these fine examples of Soviet and Russian mechanical engineering and design that until late 80s have been closed off to the rest of the world. Now that these cameras have come to light, I want to share them with all of you. Recently I have decided to start cataloging Soviet and Russian cameras online, thus the project was born, which is a Wiki catalog of Russian and Soviet cameras.

FED 4b Olympic

Wiki Catalog Entry

This is an Olympic version of FED 4b, also known as 4L (for 61 L/D lens).

With the last version of the black cover with horizontal and vertical stripes.

It's sad that FED decided to stamp 6-digit serials on the bottom plate of the back door, because those doors can be accidently changed easily.
FED-3, Fed-4 and Fed-5 doors are the same, stamping the serial on the door might have simplified production.
There are big stamped serials (around 21mm long for 6 digits)
and small serials (around 13mm long for 6 digits).
