FED S
1937-1941

Type: Coupled rangefinder
Film: 35mm perforated
Formula: Leica II
Factory: F. E. Dzerzhinsky Labour Commune (FED) / Kharkov, USSR
.
Pictured camera:
Body: Fed-1c-S #59274
Lens: FED 50mm f2.0 #22657
Production year: 1938
.
This camera has the top speed of 1/1000s and the faster f2.0/50mm lens.
This model of FED-1 was designated "S" by the factory and was made between 1938-1941 according to Princelle. With original leather case, many other accessories were made for the FED-1 during these years, including the right angle viewer, wide angle lens, FED light meter, a panoramic head, and a self-timer with mirror. This was an attempt to make a FED "system camera" similar to what the Leica had evolved into.
.
Certainly Princelle is wrong about the production of the "S". By the serial numbers, about 13000 Fed lenses 2/50mm were made specially for this model. It would be reasonable to think that 10000/12000 Fed-S in fact were produced. (Jacques M.).
Also sovietcams.com describes Fed 50/2 lenses without serial number and one of them is listed here on the lens page too, even when it makes less sense to list them here because there is no serial. Also in the book 'Russian and Soviet cameras (1840-1991) Catalogue / Iskusstvo 1993' are 20.000 FED S mentioned.
.
Please see links, at bottom of the page for the accessories.
