Finally I found a choice of lenses. Nothing extraordinary, but here they are:
First row: Mir 20H s/n 860811 (converted to M42), Industar-69 no s/n (adapted to M39 FFD), Jupiter-12 s/n 9021676 (M39), Jupiter-8 s/n 6226854 (M39),
second row: Industar-26m s/n 1404203 (M39), Industar-61 L/D s/n 947005 (M39), Helios-44 s/n 0256726 (M39 Zenit),
last row: Jupiter-9 s/n 6102545 (M39 Zenit), Jupiter-11 s/n 7102274 (M39 Zenit). Missing on the photo: Orion-15 s/n 760592 (M39).
The Mir came with a custom made adapter M42 to M39. For both possibilities focus is spot-on. They are all standard versions, the Jupiter-9 is a bit strange, it has what seems to be a custom made distance scale, ∞, 30m, 10m ..., perhaps a repair. The 26m was a present from a friendly seller.

An interesting beginning of collection, Reinhard!
I fear I was not interested by lenses during years. I was wrong: it's the lens which takes the photo, not really the body!

Here is one of my last purchases: a Zorki 1a/1b. It has the release button of the 1b and still the speed dial of the Fed-Zorki.

I was looking for it for a long time, now it arrives, a KIEV Stereo set. It's like new, with original box, instruction manual, passport and the bill! Everything looks as if it was used only a few times. There are some stereo pictures that look as if the previous owner took them.
Really nice.









Together with it comes this very early Jupiter 11 with KIEV mount from 1951.



And there was more, a Zorki SK lens (2,0/50) from 1949 and a Jupiter 9 from 1955 made by KMZ with passport and bill (445 Rubels!). Two yellow filters (40,5 and 49mm) in bakelite box, I have never seen these boxes before.

Yes a nice stereo set. I was lucky to have that beam splitter as extra with a Kiev-4AM. The adapter was also from 1956 but it was for the Eur. 80,- with Kiev-4AM (refurbished) and J-8M included. Later I realised it was a rare item.

Just a picture:

I have the stereo set, but Inever tried it. Lazyness...
At home, a Contax S and a Zenit "Classic".
No doubt, the Zenit is more beautiful! It's an early one, with one screw only at the back of the cover and the s/n with bold ciphers. He has the ancient cap too.

A funny Nicca/Fed.
In fact, a "combo" early Nicca (for the cover, the arm of the rangefinder and the baseplate) and Fed 1f. All is from 1948/49, so the camera is coherent.

Thanks Luiz!
It seems that some early Nippons didn't have the slow speeds.
See: http://corsopolaris.net/supercameras/nicca/nicca.html

But mine is a Fed with Nicca parts, nothing else!

My friend Jacques
The only Nicca without slow speeds were made in the 1943-1946 period
probably not compatible with the FED body you have. Although the preiod could be superposing, politics in the era were not favourable (seems to be)

Perhaps you could introduce yourself and your collection in a new post?
Anyway, welcome here!

Jacques Thank you for the warm welcome.
I like Zorka.
My collection is not large.
When it comes to Zorka C is I only have three.
So there is nothing much to show. At least for the moment.

Thanks for your photos Robert,
those Festival cameras are special, the black ones (vulcanite and nylonette) got the Festival logo, but the green and grey ones did not. But we know at least from sovietcams.com that those green and grey ones were delivered with special Festival boxes, so they might indeed also be Festival cameras, at least most of them. Did you get boxes with your cameras too or other information, maybe passports?
I'm also interested to see the backside of the green and grey cameras, would be thankful if you could post those pictures too.

Thanks Luiz,
would have been interesting if Nicca copied a Fed. But through the connections to Germany because of the war they might got good information about Leicas, no need to copy a copy.
The only real copy of a Fed might be the Neuca which is comprehensible because they came from the soviet zone GDR.

Hi Lenny

I do not have those cameras boxes or documents or any additional information.
As requested I took pictures of the back.

I throw more pictures of other Zorki and the Fed.

Thank you so much Robert,

your grey nylonette is very clean. Often marks can be seen from the leather case, especially where the closing buttons of the case are. Never put them in a leather case again.

A lucky find.
A seller in Odessa wrote me that he has a lens that could interest me, for 300uah (around 10 euros).

Here is the lens at my friends home already.




Note the serial number, looks like someone made mistake

I'm usualy not in the FED lens collection, but that could be a good start .

All that makes me think that the (real) serial number could be around 26000.

Jacques,

I have just found this site and read this thread.
I think real number of your camera is 14xxx or 13xxx (less possible). It has characteristic vulcanite. Please look at surface of top plate (under cover of rangefinder)it is little bit different than in other FEDs. Remaining details (like advanced knob, shutter release, etc) fit 14xxx too. It cannot be seen clearly on pictures but speed dial should have bigger diameter like in older items of FED.
But I can say nothing about cover of rangefinder. Maybe real number of the camera is 14580 ?

Probably you are right, Alfa2. And welcome here!
I was too fast when looking at this Fed (I have it in front of me now).
By the width of engraving, no doubt it belongs to a 1b series around the s/n 2xxxx. But the diameter of the speed dial is an earlier one. And the vulcanite can be seen on the 13/16xxx 1b-s, whereas the profile of the release button (much curved) could be even older.
All in all, it cannot be a 13/16xxx because of the width of engraving. Rather a camera made by the factory using spare parts after repair, from several other ones.

But the discussion remains open (in a separate thread if necessary). Thanks!

Amitiés. Jacques.

Thanks for your welcome.
You are absolutely right but let me tell/write my theory, which may be not true of course.
There were many poor people in 90's in area of past-USSR who wanted to earn some money. It was usual that servicemen were buying russian cameras on their market and than they were selling them abroad. But they were buying everything even not complete cameras and than combining them to working models which could be sold.
Sometimes there was problem with e.g cameras which were combined from FED in about 50% and Zorki in about 50%. Was it FED or Zorki ? For sure it was not FED-Zorki .
My theory is your camera is FED 13/16xxx but plate with engravings (cover of rangefinder) is from another camera.

As you wrote discussion was still open. (If moderator decide so it could be new thread.)
It is really plasure to talk/write to you about old cameras.
Thank you.

Hello!
I was very happy to found this resource some time ago. Today I want to show FED device for reproduction, that just arrived in my collection

http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/2922016_FED_0081.JPG


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/2922016_FED_0080.JPG

As it comes from Bunimovich book, the device could be purchased as an accessory to FED U-0 enlarger

Pages from 89 to 99 are dedicated to reproduction photography.

In 1933, the FED has not yet been issued, its accessories were produced in 1937. So write Bunimovich in 1933 there was still nothing!

Sorry, but this book is from 1938 and not from 1933!

Alexander, Jacques, Alexey...
As far as i understand, there are two types of the book - some books have 1933 on the first page, some have 1938. The interesting moment is that all of them got 1937 or 1938 on the last page. So, in fact all of the books were physically produced in 1937-1938, but a few of them got 1933 on the first page. I suppose this is just a massive misprint.
Some photos:

Hi Aleksandrov!

Certainly Alexander and Alexey are right.
It should be a misprint, and the last page gives the good date.
As if misengravings, on some Fed covers, were not enough....

Amitiés. Jacques.

although I do not collect russian cameras (only some russian lenses), I came across a very nice one some days ago and finally I could not resist. it just arrived.

it came with an old zorki box and the kind seller added a copy of a zorki manual.

it has its leather case

and its original lens.

serial no. 128213, which makes it 1939 according to what I have found.

it seems as if everything is working fine. maybe it has not been used much.

I will try to load a roll next week and test it.

lens no. 125489.

there was a document folded into the leather case. according to the seller it says that the camera was sold in 1942 in a moscow commission shop for 850 roubels. it seems as if it has not worked much since then. anyway, it wasn't expensive and I look forward to try it out.
