Scope and content
Item consists of a 35mm camera for underwater and all-weather photography, manufactured by the Nikon Corporation. The camera design was based on the Calypso camera, originally designed by Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Jean de Wouters. Nikon acquired the production rights to this model in 1962, and six models were created. The Nikonos V model was available in green or orange (this model is green) and featured automatic focusing with aperture priority and manual override. The camera is water resistant to 50 meters and features a Nikkor 35mm f2.5 lens and shutter with speeds from 1/30 to 1/1000 plus bulb setting.
Immediate source of acquisition
Donated to the Ryerson University Library and Archives Special Collections Department by Dr. Neville Poy in 2017.
