For more than 20 years, I had been looking for a mechanical camera (WITHOUT batteries!). Having heard about the Fed 5 from “The Photographers’ Gallery”, in London, I went to England to buy it. I like the FED 5 so much because it’s a very strong camera: you can take photos on the beach, the mountain, in very cold places or in very hot ones. You just have to make sure there’s film in it. I like to listen to “her” mechanical song when she’s shooting. And, of course, there’s the 80´s design – no plastic, just metal with metal. So what are the Fed 5’s best features? The range of speeds; you can do everything with all the speeds, but I like the “B”. The metering system is great. Whether the aperture is small or large, the Fed 5 achieves amazing depth of focus. You can even approximate the distance by looking at its scale (don’t think, just shoot!!)
Selenium light meter.
Remarkable contrast, resolution and sharpness due to multi-elemented ‘Industrar 61’ lens
