«Dad’s FED»

With my fascination of photography I’m surprised I didn’t remember of these sooner. You see, my dad brought over a pair of his old vintage cameras with him on our move to America. Sadly, the oldest one (3rd one) got misplaced shortly before we left, which makes FED the oldest one we posses now.

This particular camera was made in 1955. My dad wasn’t even 20 years old then. I don’t really know the full story of how he got it except for the fact that he liked taking photographs from very early age. I should ask him more about it.

This camera is a soviet made rangefinder, which closely resembles Leica, but the quality was much cruder. FED — the name of the camera — stands for Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky.

I’ve ordered some black & white 35mm film last week. I’m going to try both of these cameras out. I’ll talk more about the 2nd one soon.
