FED 1-S
1937-1946

FED -1c - S ...... coupled rangefinder / Leica II copy ..... 35 mm perforated film
Body serial # 59274 .... lens: FED - 50 mm f.2.0 / serial # 22657
factory : F. E. Dzerzhinsky Labour Commune (FED) / Kharkov, USSR
year of production: 1938

notes: This camera has the top speed of 1/1000 of a second and the faster F. 2.0 / 50 mm lens.
This model of FED-1 was designated "S" by the factory and possibly 2,000 or fewer units of this model were 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 2/50mm Fed lenses were made specially for this model. So, it would be reasonable to think that c. 12000 S in fact were produced. (Jacques M. addition).


Please see links, at bottom of the page for the accessories.
