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. It appears that a series of interchangeable lenses was intended for this model as the lens is removable, however no other lenses are known. Interestingly the manual also says to never remove the lens. This camera is covered with nylon cloth [2].

Sample of No Name (early) Fed-Atlas.


At least few versions of the new-coming Fed Atlas camera were announced in early soviet press. These samples are identical to regular Atlas cameras (c.1967), but with different nameplate markings. The sample opposite has "ATLAS" markings on the frontplate and technically different film rewind knob.
