I've always been interested in Soviet cameras, for one thing I can actually afford them. But not once have I been tempted by the Fed 4. Manufactured from 1969-1976, the Fed 4 is significantly larger than the earlier Fed 1s and Fed 2s. The built-in selenium light meter does little to add to the cameras looks, making it one of the ugliest cameras produced by the FSU. So when I saw this example at a camera show earlier this year, I had no intention of buying it, for one thing it was priced at the outrageous price of $75. The only reason I picked it up was out of curiosity, I then set it back down and started to walk away. It was at this point that the dealer shouted out "Today only, $30!". This is why I now own a Fed 4.
