You mean you only bought one camera in two years, Martti??
If I could be as wise...

Congrats for this splendid Fed 1a, with a correct 1 turn lens.

Amitiés. Jacques.

One camera in 2 years but what a wonderful camera it is.
I guess the case is not from this camera because it has big screw at the bottom.
What is serial number of the lens ?

I've just received this from an ebay seller in Ukraine:

Bah! I've forgotten how to add photos.

Anyway, it's a Jupiter 8 from 1963. It only cost £24.99 plus £7 p+p. It seems to be working properly, although it doesn't look all that 'pretty'. I didn't really want to spend £60-£80, which seems to be the sort of price these things are going for quite often these days.

What is that Mepro-Kominar lens? In my opinion one of the good reasons (price being another) for buying a Zenit was the good lens, so here they have changed it?

I suppose that these Japanese versions of Zenit are not common? Bravo, Alexander.
Nothing very interesting here, just a xth version of the Fed 1b, that time with a release button sharper than the other ones...

Wow this is a very nice addition Alexander! Very rare pair! The lens are Japanese, I guess only the bodies were exported and the importer put these as part of the package. I only have the "E" myself, still looking for Pro. Congratulations! I love the rebranded Zenits, it's almost like different countries do their own versions of Matryoshka. Fun to see

Cheers,
Vlad

Juhani,
so far as I know the main porpose was to bring Kominar lenses to market so cheap as it possible, so the japanies bought the simpliest SLR-cameras and applied own Kominar lenses to them. These Meprozenit cameras with Kominar lenses had no competition in price.

The Albar, a very fine finding
Did you know the link behind the name? Greek "alba" means white, and Albar is made in Belarus, "White-Russia"
What is odd to my eyes is why they added the 1/1000 speed, was it really needed that much?

Best regards,
Juhani

Hi Juhani!!

I own another one with #9315113. I suppose it means it has been manufactured 8 numbers before this one...
It is not in my home for the moment, but I will check soon if it has 1/1000 too or not....

A very early Fed 1f, unhappily not completely original:


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/2752018_IMG_0008.JPG


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/2752018_IMG_0010.JPG

The cover seems genuine, with its s/n 210064 and the shutter box is good too. But the vulcanite is not, like the buttons. A camera which was mounted a bit lately, with spare parts, probably.

Amitiés. Jacques.

Yes, the vulcanite is from much later FED.
But which buttons do you mean and why they are not genuine ?

The vulcanite should be on the "Romashka" type, for this s/n. Fed 1f with a vulcanite of "Red Flag" type are correct too, but just after by the s/n. Then, the usual vulcanite takes place (like the one on this 210064)
For these questions (and the buttons), see levonsa's site:

I have just noticed the Fed 1c s/n 50000 showed by levonsa. Incredible... It was specially made for you, Alexey?

Here, another 1952 Jupiter 12.


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/2662018_2018-06-07 18.23.29.jpg

The new one is on the right. In fact, both belong to the PT0820 group, by Aidas's classification. And both have Biogon optics coming from the same Zeiss batch.

But their KMZ bodies are slightly different: the stripe parts don't have the same measures:

thanks a lot Ulrich !
rare to find such a complete kit.
With the box, the case, lens-hood, cap, passport ... and Leningrad-2 (active).But the thing that impressed me is the aesthetic and working conditions. :)

Hello,

New addition :)

Dry curtains as expected. I can replace both. But the camera won't be 100% original. Will you repair it ?

I don't replace curtains in FEDs NKVD. I'm not gonna use it. There are (in general in the world) a few better cameas for shooting.
Sometimes I do this in common M39 Leicas.

Today a dream came true
I found it at a local camera collectors fair, and the price was decent indeed. The seller was not especially into FSU-cameras, more like European oddities like Alpa, which he had a couple.
So now its mine, for keeps

Yes, a flash sync socket. Actually a good place for one to be added, although nicest would be without.
But it also shows the camera has been used, and not just sitting stored.
And the shutter is so smoothly operating, simply amazing difference to FED and Zorki.
Also the weight of the camera is incredible!
But what is the meaning of "81" in the bottom plates?

Juhani
