Here are some shots done with FED-50. The camera is very pleasant to use, well built and works like a charm. It came with leather suitecase and hood.
The film is an old cine Svema (when developped, you can see on the negativ "Bezopastnaya Svema", which mean ~Secured Svema. At this time existed other type of film, with highly inflamable material (so needed particular precaution to store). So this inscription meant that it's not an highly inflamable film, you can store it normaly. They stopped to mark it during the 70's, so that give an idea of the age of the film). Film is already on a cassette, so I don't have precise informations about it.
I used soviet developper and soviet fixator. Developper is UP-2 (expired in 1966), fixator is simply named fixator (Fiksazh/Фиксаж) and is expired from 1964.

As you can see on thoses photos, all this old powder works very well :) .

These photos do seem to have an 'old' look about them, especially the 'leaning tower of eiffel'. :-)
