FED-Atlas isa 35mm film rangefinder camera made by FED and produced between 1966-71 with quantity 22.805 units. FED Atlas = ФЭД Атлас. The camera is also known FED-11.

This camera is a follow on to the FED-10. The film speed setting has been moved to the lens mount and there is a rewind crank on this model.
