The Fed 5 is one of the most feature packed Soviet rangefinder which does not require a battery.
The feature set is quite outstanding among other Fed cameras and I think it provides everything which you would ever need in a classic camera.
Single stroke film advance lever which is connected to an automatic film counter mechanism. This lever is a huge improvement over the previous film advance knob used in the Fed 3.
The coupled range-finder/viewfinder is also handy, and diopter correction is possible
Has a hot-shoe which is quite a big thing, so convenient flash usage became possible.
The camera features a built in light meter which does not require any power source apart from the light it is measuring, so you can never run out of batteries. The needle display of the meter and the related mechanical calculator makes the top plate rather cool looking.
In excellent condition and fully functional, light meter also appears to be accurate. Comes with original case

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
