Ukrainian Rangefinder FED 5 (1981)

This is the old Soviet copy of a Leica with an Industar 61 LD lens. It was my wife’s father’s and under Socialism it was a bit of a luxury item. I really would like to do a series of photos with it to capture that vintage look.

There’s something about the feel, weight and smell of it which seem right and are missing in modern cameras.
