The FED-5 (often marked in cyrillic, with several variations of font, ФЭД 5 {upper-case} or фэд 5 {lower-case}) is a 35mm rangefinder camera produced by the FED factory in the Ukrainian city of Kharkov from 1977 until 1996.

The FED-5 is an updated FED-4, with cleaner lines to the top, a pop-up rewind knob in place of the thumb-wheel, a hot shoe, restyled film reminder/frame counter and meter rings, and the meter scale repositioned and converted from a match-needle to an EV-scaled device where the user manually transfers the meter reading to the calculator.

Design

After the Second World War, FED cameras were again manufactured. And, from about 1950 a new camera of very similar design appeared. Without getting too complicated, there were even Fed Zorkis in 1948. The prewar Fed (i.e.- Leica II) design was still manufactured by Topographical Service of the Air Force after under the name TSVVS, but in very small number.

Film photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever . . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. 35mm film SLR camera is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.
