View Full Version : FED5 - how to?

Maybe a stupid question, but...
I've finished the first test roll un a new FED5b, and now I cannot find how to unlock and rewind the film :D

Where's the secret?

There are no foolish questions if you want to find an answer. To rewind on a Fed 5, simply push down on the chrome collar surrounding the shutter button. Voila. Nice cameras. Curt

Actually, that's the best single question anyone could ask about a Fed-5. The rewind position is unmarked and not particularly intuitive.

Make sure you return the rewind collar to original position after rewind or will think the shutter has broken. I had quite a number returned to the camera shop where I worked in the 70's with that complaint.
