Some fatures[]

  • Lens: Industar-61 L/D 55mm f/2.8
  • CdS TTL lightmeter, comes in light path when film is advanced and goes out when fired like the mirror in old SLR cameras.
  • Two models were made difering on viewfinder (with luminous frames or not) and on the mood of speed changing.
  • Shutter electronic, speeds 8-1/2000
  • Auto speeds: 8sec to 1/500, Manual speeds: 1sec to 1/500
  • Visible electronic diode exposure meter through viewfinder
  • All other caracteristics identical to FED 5 family cameras. This model was directly derivated from FED5S, the mechanical and optical basis for building the Electronic FED6.

A FED-6 TTL was sold in February 2005 on Ebay for US$1,325 to a buyer in the United States. According to the seller, a FED-6 TTL was introduced at the German camera expo photokina 2000 but it was never put into production.
