it looks fine. mine is an ordinary T series. I have read that T stands for a wider temperature range. guido mentions a P model for polar on his page. does anyone know about the differences between A and T?

Fed 35. Quite a rare camera but unfortunately the shutter is jammed open (if anyone has any tips on repair please let me know!). Other small defect is there's no plastic in the frame counter window - just a hole. I'm guessing that's not how it was originally.

According to Princelle this camera has manual, automatic and semi-automatic modes. But I'm not sure how you would select the different modes, apart from the A on the shutter speed select like a Fed 50.

Nice addition for the cabinet, in any case.

an Iskra-2


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent2/1732021_iskra_2_IMG_6525.JPG
in nice condition


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent2/1732021_iskra_2_IMG_6521.JPG
and with a working meter.

I was looking for this camera for quite some years. I already bought 2 others, one had a broken meter and a broken film advance, the other a working meter, but also a broken film advance. so I had given up until vlad recommended okvintagecamera.com a few weeks ago. I bought this one from them. as we will have some days of very bad weather, testing will wait until next week...

That's a nice one! I have an Iskra but the film advance doesn't work properly either - it's a very delicate mechanism. I'd like an Iskra 2 too some day. Okvintagecamera is a great site and the prices look very reasonable to me.

Hi there,

this rare Zenit B arrives here some days ago. It's totally black and like new. According to Aidas site they were only built in 1972 and mine is from 1972 too.

That's a really lovely looking camera! Looks great all in black. I do like Zenit Bs and the pancake Industar suits it better than a Helios 44.

I have a black Kiev 4AM which to me looks much nicer than the metal finish but alas that one isn't original - it has been refinished. Very nicely done, though.

Michael,

I also like the Zenit B, because my first serious camera was a Revueflex B that I got from my older brother in the mid 70ies. It is still in my collection today :-)

The biggest camera in my collection (bigger even than a Kiev 60 ;-) ) - I have finally got an FKD 13x18.

Lens is a KOMZ and from 1956 if they followed the usual serial number conventions. The nameplate seems to show it was made in Kharkov (харкiв in Ukrainian. I guess that's Orgtechnica?

Hi folks,

I have found this rare early black Jupiter 8 from 1966 the last time. It has the shape of the silver ones and it not browned/black oxided but black painted.

Help me out, what is this?
An old man sold it to me, he said it's been in his closet for 30 years.
He said he used it to take pictures of himself.

Hi Martti,
Certainly a Fed NKVD 1d/1e, by what I see. Without engravings (are there traces of erasure ?).
The lens is very interesting in itself: a LTM Sonnar 2/5cm. Do you have its serial number or a photo of the beauty ring?

Amitiés. Jacques.

A cover erased, then re-chromed, waiting for another engraving? But it seems there is no difference between the chromes cover/upper plate. So, a cover originally non engraved?
To know more, is there a date marked inside, on the shutter box?

Jacques.
PS: it seems you miss the RF front window. PM if you need one.

Hi Martti, welcome back! Haven't seen you around in a long time! . I have a similar one but with unfinished chroming. I think the engraving has been filled (instead of filed down) and entire top cover has been re-chromed for later transformation into a Feica, I've encountered a few of these. Someone did a very good job.

Best regards,
Vlad

My 100th Fed 1.
In fact, an early Fed 1f, with prewar features (circled release button, for example).
I will tell more when I have it.

Hi Jacques,
red window on the back side seems to be made later. it doesn't match the camera type.
Let me know please when you get the camera.

Yes, Alexander.
These windows can be seen only on the 1a and very early 1b. And too when there was a special reason to check the register. For the moment, I don't know if this camera is original or was assembled with spare parts...

Hello Vlad and everybody else!

Is there a date marked inside, on the shutter box?
I will look after.
Will try to find out from the seller, where did he get it. He used it last time in 90s.
What to you think, is it possible to look through the surface with some medical device, xray of something?

Hi Martti,

Yes, there should be a date (day and month only) engraved on the shutter box, where you insert the film. It corresponds to the checking of the mechanism, before the complete assembling. It's not always readable because of the erasion by the cartridge.

Here is an example: 16 X (or XI ?


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent2/1972021_IMG_0183.JPG

Have you found the missing window?

my suggestion nd speculation:
Considering the totally different case and lens (also firing knob), it could be first prototype generation of Neuca which were really overhauled war surplus Feds intended to be sold in Europe.
This was an obscure period (1945-1949) when lots of German engeneers were working in Soviet factories.

So, no doubt, it's a Fed.
As for the year... Probably 1940, by what I see. 1941 would be too late, and the 1939 ones probably still have a yellow brass shutter box with such a month.
Does the pressure film plate has a hole (after c. # 150000) or not (before that number) to confirm? If nothing was changed!

Another Fed, not yet here. A rare 1f "romashka".


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent2/1182021_Romashka.jpg
(seller's photo)

I will open a thread about the early 1f when this one is here.
These early 1f are the last on the tortuous lane which starts from the late 1e, followed by the Fed Arsenal and the "Red Flag"...

Hello!

Unfortunately, the equipment in the laboratory did not have the correct sensor. I could only measure the thickness, it was 0.6mm above the serial number and 0.7mm above the logo.
One theory is that the camera was stolen from the factory before the logo was engraved.

I received a KMZ Jupiter-3 with a Serial Number higher than what I've seen before. This is my 4th KMZ J-3 made in 1956. This one is different: the fixture for the rear triplet is similar to the ZOMZ. The sides are the same thickness 2.0mm as my other 1956 KMZ J-3's. The 1956 ZOMZ shown here - thickness is 2.2mm.

[url=https://ibb.co/S7Hcm3m][/url]

1956 ZOMZ left; 1956 KMZ 56040xx Middle; 1956 KMZ 5601xxx right.

[url=https://ibb.co/B3dNvKv][/url]

I think this is a PT1635 using the recomputed formula using Russian glass rather than Schott glass. I'll be testing against the 1956 ZOMZ and earlier KMZ with the Zeiss style rear fixture. The optical block was mounted in a 1970s ZOMZ LTM focus mount, I did a full teardown. Maybe some blocks were found and mounted for sale? The glass is perfect.

One more shot, ZOMZ left and KMZ right. New style fixture with threads on leading edge of the fixture and guide ring for better alignment into the barrel.

The early finder is the mirror image (almost) of the later model. I assume the reversal was to use the new finder on a Zorki/Fed.
Did KMZ continue making both versions of the finder? I've seen some 4-digit SN finders that are oriented as the new ones.

I've decided that having received my FED 3A(5) back from the technician now in full working order and can be used, that it counts as "Just arrived in my collection", even though I bought it about ten weeks ago. Serial number on the body: 3217441, serial number on the fed Industar 26m lens:1871128. Both are excellent condition. The focusing ring is smooth and doesn't turn when the aperture ring is turned and I can't really see any dust in it, the lens's body also looks like it's not been very dirty at any time. The camera body is clean and only shows any "age" in a few very tiny places, most noticeably a tiny bit of brassing on the eyepiece.
