Scope and content
Item consists of an automatic single-lens reflex, 35mm camera manufactured by the Nikon Corporation and using the F lens mount system. The system was part of Nikon's professional film camera line. The camera features an LCD display screen for viewing and changing settings, a 3D Color Matrix Metering system using a 1,005-pixel sensor and Center-Weighted metering with the option of manually selected spot metering. The camera featured 4 shooting modes: programmed automatic, shutter priority automatic, aperture priority automatic, and manual. The shutter was an electromagnetically controlled vertical-travel focal-plane shutter and would shoot at speeds from 30 seconds to 1/8000, plus bulb, with a flash sync of 1/250. The camera requires 4 AA batteries.
Camera is in overall good condition. The camera back, which is rubberized, has begun to disintegrate and rub off, a known issue for this model.
