FED-2 type c, As Is
[f2c_body_asi]

The FED-2 was a successful attempt by the Soviet camera makers to improve upon the original Leica design, which was copied in the FED 1 for two decades. The camera has the following features - a removable back cover, a new, wide base rangefinder coupled with a viewfinder, a diopter adjustment of the VF and strap lugs. As any Soviet Leica copy, this FED-2 is compatible with the 39 mm Leica TM lenses. FED-2 is probably the most successful FED camera - it is more convenient to use than the original FED (Leica II (D) copy) and is more compact than the newer FEDs (FED-3 to FED-5).

The body and the back cover were cast, which made the camera more rigid than the original FED. The shutter and the film transport mechanism were also redesigned and worked very smoothly. There were many modifications made to the FED-2 during its production from the mid 1950's to 1970.

This FED-2 is a late production model, version "c" (by Princelle). It was made by FED factory in Kharkov in the early 60's. The camera has all the features of the FED-2 - a self-timer, a flash synch, a new winding button with a memo dial.

  • Shutter speeds: B, 1/25 - 1/500.

This FED-2 is a great sample of this Soviet classic, a capable user and a nice collectible camera. You can mount any Leica lens on the FED-2

Why As Is: The rangefinder of this camera is misaligned, vertically and horizontally. You should be able to use this body by dialing distance on the lens. Only body is for sale, no spool, lens, or case.
