FED-5B (V) with original brown case!

The FED-5B (V) is an interchangeable lens rangefinder introduced in 1977 by FED, a state-run optical manufacturer named after Felix E. Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the Soviet secret police. The 5B (V) and the standard FED-5 are virtually identical with the only difference being a lack of light meter on the 5B. The FED has a cloth shutter capable of speeds ranging from 1 to 1/500 seconds and Bulb coupled to a threaded shutter button on the top plate and a self-timer lever located to the side of the lens. 

For flash photography, a hot shoe can be found in the middle of the top plate with a flash sync terminal located on the back right underneath it. On the back’s left side is the viewfinder window surrounded by a knurled ring that adjusts the diopter. Above the viewfinder is the film speed indicator and rewind knob. On the other side of the hot shoe is the shutter speed selector which must only be adjusted after cocking the advance lever under the frame counter and film type indicator.
