FED 1d (type 8)

The FED 1 rangefinder camera is a Soviet copy of the 1932 Leica and as such, uses the same M39 screw mount. The FED 1 is a bottom load 35mm camera, with separate viewfinder and rangefinder windows. As with most early FED cameras the film must be advanced prior to shutter speed selection.
