    FED 2 Question

    Hi,
    A friend brought me back from Russia a very nice Fed-2. I just wonder how to rewind the film. How do I release at the end of the film ?

    Best regards,

    Guillaume

    I used to have a Fed 4 some years ago. IIRC: near the wind on lever there's a ring around the shutter firing button. Press the edge of the ring and turn towards B.
    Good luck

    Early FED-2's (FED-2a) have a separate lever like the FED-1 rather than a collar around the shutter release.

    Probably best off not setting to C as it is unreliable, I always set to about 2 frames before zero so that after winding on 3 frames I get '1' on the frame counter.

    Another few FED-2 information sites:

    Neat little camera. Got mine for $40 on eBay a few months back. Shutter needs cleaning....
