FED-4 rangefinder  with Industar-61 53mm f/2.8 tessar type lens

MADE IN USSR!

 

The Fed-4 were produced in two versions. The first model (referred to as Fed-4 (a)) has wind knob and was modified from Fed-3 (a) to accept a light meter. The Fed-4 (b) has much higher viewfinder assembly to add a light meter. The light meter control knob is where the rewind knob was so the rewind knob now sticks out of the side. The Fed-4 (b) camera again was available with either single or dual lettering [2].

 

This particular version of FED-4 is single lettering logo & has built in selenium meter*

 

*Note: selenium meters age and should not be trusted – use “sunny 16” or external meter to set the exposure parameters.
