The FED 1g is a jewel of a camera and anyone who purchases one will not be disappointed.
The look is classic, a combination of chrome and enamel, with utilitarian, easy to use controls. The focus is smooth and accurate, the lens sharp and clear. It's petite size, even with a case, and collapsible lens allows it to easily fit into most coat pockets. The FED 1g has the aura of street photography of the golden age.
Don't be put off by cutting the film leader to the required length or loading the film from the bottom. There are numerous tutorials on the 'net to assist you and once you load the film, it's a snap thereafter. Don't try the various cheats such as setting the camera to "B" or using business cards, though! The correct method is the best and it really is easy.
As usual, Yuri's wonderful customer service and lighting fast shipping are A+ ... I'm completely satisfied with the FED 1g.
