FED 3.5/50 in a collapsible mount

The FED - 2 Type II is the same as the FED - 2 Type I, with the addition of flash synchronization. The back and baseplate, which are joined, are removable to allow film loading. There are two locking keys, at either end of the baseplate. The lever alongside the film rewind knob is for diopter adjustment.

The flash socket, on the front of the pictured camera under and to the right of the rangefinder window, can also be found under and to the left of the rangefinder window.

This model was also produced in China, by the Guang Optical Instrument Factory (Nanjing) as the Chang Chiang and Nanjing M1.
