I have found the s/n 466624, lens s/n 3874.
This camera just takes place between the two batches of Fed anniversaries. It is an ordinary 1g: interesting news to limit the number of "anniversaries".

I will post photos when it is here. (added in the wiki).

It seems strange inside, looking from the opened bottom... what's your feelings?

Yes, I had seen it.
It looks like a spring for cameras with a delaying mechanism. Probably a home made modification...
Thanks for the numbers.

Its a fairly complicated job. Basically you need to swap the bushing sleeve complete with spring from the old camera to the new one. This involves dissasembling the camera so you can extract the sleeve and unglue the shutter ribbon from it. At least you have an old camera to experiment on! The sleeve is then installed in the other camera, the ribbons glued on and the shutter retensioned - should only be three or four turns. Isaak Maizenberg 'All you need to know about design and repair of Russian cameras' has all the details.

Good luck!

Well, there's Roger Lean in UK who is a famous TOE London repairman that works on Soviet stuff. If you want it fixed that would be the person to take it to.

FED-2 is indeed nice, I do like Zorki-4 series a lot myself. I had a Drug CLAed some time ago, still one of my favorite shooters...

Best regards,

Oh wow thank you Vlad!]]>
