FED 3 Has Arrived and its Awesome!

It’s finally arrived and its a fascinating little camera that’s going to take me a wee while to master its basics … like shutting the back plane (more light leakage expected on a few frames. I’m getting used to it now). Fortunately there’s been a couple of translations of the manual online.

I’ve never used a rangefinder before so it feels strange not focusing through the lens per say. There’s a little orange-ish coloured circle of light taken from a separate view finder and within that little circle you see the image in front of you double exposed. When you turn the focus wheel on the lens you’ll know you’re in focus when the two images combine.

Using the light metre I’m still not sure about but I’ll look into it when I get Anna to bed so in the meantime, here’s some bad photos of a beautiful camera:
