    …fostered a travelling camera recently - Fed-2 with Industar-61. Very nteresting camera to play with and I was mighty surprised what this old Russian glass could do…

    The Industar-61 is one of the best Tessar formula 50mm lenses that you will find, made using low-dispersion glass.

    The Fed-2 has a long-base rangefinder, very accurate. Get one with good curtains- it's a great user. "My Theory"- it looks like the Russians based the Fed-2 on the Leica IV prototypes made before and during World War II.

    Beautiful, Mark. Pensive, complex feel.

    That's quite the development time for the Ilford, is it usually so slow?

    Thank you kindly. Yes that's box speed. Sort of good though as it's more forgiving of the vagaries of temperature and time …sometimes my developing could be a tad more scientific :blush:
