FED 35 A

Automatic miniature Rangefinder 35mm camera

Operating Instructions

Since efforts are continually made to improve the reliability and performance of the product, minor changes may be Introduced without special notice.

 

1. GENERAL DIRECTIONS

 

The FED-35A is a modern miniature camera intended Tor amateur shooting on standard black-and-white and colour perforated film 35 mm wide. The camera ensures two shooting modes: an automatic mode in the event of presence of a power supply source; a nonautomatic mode when there is no power supply source.
In the field of vision of the view-and-range finder for accurate framing of a picture the lighted frame provided with the marks for parallax correction is available. The camera is furnished with a self-reset picture counter.
The interlocking of a release button in the automatic mode in the event of insufficient lighting as well as the interlocking of a shutter cocking lever (which prevents the repeated cocking) are envisaged by the design of the camera. Bring the shutter cocking lever as far as it will go, otherwise the lever does not return to the initial position, indicating that the shutter has not been fully cocked.
Do not press on the release button, when the cocking lever has not been fully cocked. This can result in the breakdown of the shutter.
Thoroughly familiarize yourself with the present instructions before using the camera. The observance of all recommendations set iorlh in the instructions will ensure the reliable operation of the camera for many years.

5. PREPARATION FOR OPERATION


Remove the camera from the case. Unscrew power supply source seat cover 19 (Fig. 5).
Insert cell РЦ53 or EPX-625 21 (Fig. 6) into the seat so that the sign " + " on its body would face outwards. Screw in cover 19 (Fig. 5). Pull up rewinding knob 3 (Fig. 7) until the opening of a rear cover occurs. Load the camera with magazine with film 2.1 and lower the rewinding knob. Insert the threading end of the film under the spring of take-up sleeve 22 and, while rotating the sleeve taking its knurled part by hand or turning the cocking lever, pull up the film so that its perforation holes would get onto the teeth of both rims of a transport drum.
Close the rear cover until the click is heard.To rewind the light-struck part of the film and to set the picture counter to the reading "I", cock the shutter several times, pressing on the release button each time. In this case the exposure indicator limb must be set to any position, except the position "A", since in the position "A" under conditions of insufficient lighting or in the event of the closed cap on the photographic lens the release button will be interlocked.
For convenience in use the shutter cocking lever has two positions: a working position and a transport position. In the working position the lever end protrudes beyond the camera shield (Fig. 8). To shift the cocking lever from the working position to the. transport one, it is sufficient to press on its protruding end by applying a small force.Set the film sensitivity whose value is seen in aperture 6 by rotation of limb 5 (Fig. 9).

To rewind the light-struck part of the film and to set the picture counter to the reading «1», cock the shutter several times, pressing on the release button (Fig. 7) each time. In this case the operation mode indicator limb must be set to any position, except the position «A», since under conditions of insufficient lighting or in the event of the closed cap on the photographic lens the release button will be interlocked (Fig.. 8). When using the film with the speed expressed in the units of COST, set the nearest value of theunit of GOST/ISO specified in theTable. Set the film sensitivity whose value is seen in the aperture (Fig. 9) by rotating the disk. The ratio of the speeds of a used photographic material and of the marking on the camera scale is specified in the Table.

6. OPERATING PROCEDURE

Automatic Mode
Set exposure indicator limb 10 (Fig. 10) to the position "A". Diaphragm limb // can be located in any position.
When the exposure indicator limb has been set to the positions "A" or "B", diaphragm 1 : 2.8 is automatically set in the camera.
While observing through the eyepiece the picture boundaries, designated by the lighted cutting frame, choose an object for shooting. When the object is located at a distance of 1—2 m, the picture boundaries will be determined by marks for parallax correction 24 (Fig. 11).
Focus the photographic lens. For this purpose match two images visible in central circle 25 of the view-and-range finder by rotation of the distance limb.
Smoothly press on the release button. The automatic system of the camera will ensure setting of the required exposure by the shutter. In the event of insufficient lighting the release button will be interlocked and the shutter will fail to operate. In this case you must change to the other mode of shooting.

7.NONAUTOMATIC MODE
Nonautomatic Mode
In the nonautomatic mode the camera operates without a power supply source. In this case the exposures and diaphragms are set with the aid of the readings of any exposure meter or tentatively by means of the Table (Appendix).Set the exposure indicator limb to any position, except the position "A". When shooting with the exposure indicator limb set to the position "B", the shutter blades will be kept opened until the release button is depressed.
Shooting with Flash Lamp
Remove stopper 16 (ref. to Fig. 3) from clip 15 of the camera. Insert flash lamp 26 (Fig. 12) into the clip. Set the chosen exposure. Determine the diaphragm with the aid of a calculator built into the flash lamp and set its value with the aid of the diaphragm limb. Carry out the shooting.
Note: The design of the camera enables to carry out the shooting with a flash lamp with any exposure values. However, when shooting without a tripod, you are recommended to shoot at exposures of 1/30 s or 1/60 s so as to avoid the crabbing. The detailed description of operation with a flash lamp is given in its operating instructions.
Use the special adapter in operation with the flash lamps provided with cable connection.

9.Shooting End

When the picture counter reads 36 pictures, press on button 17 (Fig. 13) which releases the film transport mechanism.
Unfold the handle on the rewinding knob (Fig. 14), rewind the film into the magazine. Open the rear cover of the camera and remove the magazine with the film.
The film transport mechanism will be engaged automatically when cocking the shutter

10.OPERATION PECULIARITIES

Do not use an excessive force, when handling the camera. Protect the camera from dust.
The rotation of the rewinding knob upon cocking the shutter is indicative of the fact that the film is pulled normally.
When shooting in the automatic mode, the used filter factor is taken into account automatically. The system of measurement and setting the exposure when shooting in the automatic mode is designed for the most frequently occurring average conditions of lighting of objects to be photographed. Therefore, in shooting the contrast objects (e. g., on the background of snow, sky or dark green vegetation) it is desirable to make a correction by changing the light sensitivity setting by 1—2 scale divisions (in the first two cases towards decreasing and in the latter case towards ncreasing)-
The shooting over, do not forget to set the true value of light sensitivity again.
You may also use such a variant of shooting: approach an object to be photographed so that it will occupy a greater part of the field of vision of the view-and-range finder, slightly press on the release button. Continue to keep the button depressed, move back to the required distance and carry out the release.

11.STORAGE RULES
Store the camera in the case. Preliminarily wind the shoulder strap around the camera body, then enclose the camera into the case.
During storage of the camera its lens must be covered by a cap and, if possible, its shutter must be released. In the event of intervals in operation exceeding several days the power supply source must be removed from the camera seat and must be stored separately.
