This one arrived almost DOA. The packet looked okay; inside was the shock. The camera shell was damaged, dented and out of shape. The front and top were okay, thus saving the lens and the control knobs. The covering [old vulcanite like thing] was coming off in flakes. I could not remove the bottom plate. I loosened the body screws and got the parts separated. Took quite a few days of tinkering [body shop like work] with a mallet and wooden cylindrical rods. Finally, got most of it into shape. I removed the vulcanite fully and put in a new Vinyl covering. Performed the usual CLA rituals. Now I have a functional Fed 1 with a nice Industar 22 retractable lens. I am beginning to like these tiny lenses. They seem handy and produce neat pictures, with some rendering ability [As Rick Drawbridge would say it!]. I walked around the local Bazaar on Sunday morning. It was a small festive day. There was some activity to be pictured. Used the ORWO UN54 film and my new brew. Here are some samples.
