Wiki Catalog Entry

This article, about the 'FAG' Geodeziya, made at the Geodeziya Zavod in Moscow, in small quantities during 1934 - 1935, appeared in the No. 6 issue of Sovetskoe Foto magazine of 1934. Here are photos of the covers of the magazine and the article about this "Russian Leica". This magazine is in my collection.

Only about 100 of these cameras, which are almost identical to the VOOMP Pioneer, were made, and some examples do exist in collections today. Production of both the VOOMP and the FAG Geodeziya was ended and the FED Commune became the predominant manufacturer of Leica II copies in the USSR during the pre-World War II years.
