NEAR NEW (99.5%) EXAMPLE. No 7372506. The name "Apollo" derives from Nikon's association with NASA during the Apollo space program when Nikon supplied both test equipment and equipment to be used on flights. The APOLLO Nikon F bodies all had serial numbers beginning with 72*** and 73*** and were the very latest and greatest of the amazing and truly iconic F generation (incorporating improvements as a result of years of professional feedback). F cosmetics changed late in production to match the then currently produced and just introduced F2. The Apollo F was updated with a plastic tipped F2 type advance lever and self timer, and stronger camera strap eyelets. Earlier Apollos had the standard F flash connection, later ones had the F2 type threaded PC connection.

Nikon F3 Limited Edition body
In 1994 Nikon offered the Nikon F3 Limited exclusively for the Japanese market and in tiny quantities. The Limited shares many features with the earlier F3P: a titanium prism cover, prism hot shoe, taller shutter speed dial, and taller shutter release with mechanical lock. Like the F3P, it is devoid of cable release socket, self timer, shutter blind, secondary film door lock, and multiple exposure lever. The "Limited" features the engraving of an "L" in front of the serial number and (unlike the F3P) is fitted with the standard back instead of the MF6B. The F3 Limited was issued in a special presentation box with outer sleeve to the box and with a special F3 Limited camera strap. Ultra rare. The F3 Limited is Nikon's rarest variant of the "normal speed" F3 (others being the F3P professional, F3T Black titanium and F3T champagne titanium). The F3 Limited also incorporated all the advances of the F3P including titanium metal for strength and lightness, special rubber covered release and special flash shoe mounted on the prism, but was available for use without a motor drive (the F3P being equipped for MD-4 use and thus somewhat bulky). F3 series bodies had a quartz controlled mechanical shutter and interchangeable finders and could be mounted with standard, high eyepoint (as in this case), action, waist level and magnification finders. The body could also accept 16 different focusing screens and was the most versatile Nikon with the widest range of accessories!

RARE - COLLECTOR'S GRADE - POSSIBLY THE LAST BRAND NEW F3H IN THE WORLD! BOXED AND COMPLETE WITH OUTER SHIPPING CARTON, REAR SHUTTER GUARD (TO BE REMOVED PRIOR TO FIRST ROLL OF FILM INSERTION), AND INSTRUCTION MANUAL. In June 1996, Nikon released the Nikon F3H (the "H" stands for "high speed"), a single-lens reflex film camera intended for press photographers. Based on the Nikon F3 and its MD-4 motor drive, both of which Nikon had released in 1980, the F3H was capable of high-speed continuous shooting at up to 13 fps. Like the earlier F2H it uses a fixed pellicle reflex mirror that transmits 70% of the light through it to the film and reflects the remaining 30% into the viewfinder. The camera has the familiar HP (High Eyepoint) finder with accessory shoe and a type B focusing screen is supplied as standard. When the MD-4H motor drive is powered by an MN-2 NiCd battery, the camera is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at 13 fps at shutter speeds of 1/1000 second and above. When the motor drive is powered by eight AA alkaline batteries, the camera is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at 7.5 fps at shutter speeds of 1/250 second and above.

The Nikon FM3A is an interchangeable lens, focal plane shutter, 35 mm film, single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. It was manufactured by Nikon Corporation in Japan, on small-volume assembly lines, from 2001 to 2006. The camera was available in two colours: all black, and satin chrome. The FM3A was the successor to the renowned Nikon FM2N camera of 1984 and was the last member of the successful, semi-professional line of Nikon compact 35 mm SLRs. The other members were the Nikon FM (released 1977), FE (1978), FM2 (1982) and FE2 (1983). They (and the Nikon FA) all used the superficially similar (but not identical) rugged copper aluminium alloy chassis and high-quality Nikon vertical bearing-mounted metal shutter and ball-bearing mounted film advance, but with improved feature levels, minor external controls and cosmetic differences. The major improvements in the FM3A compared to the FM2N are the hybrid electro-mechanically controlled aluminium-bladed focal plane shutter, the aperture priority auto-exposure mode, the match-needle exposure control system and provision for through-the-lens (TTL) off-the-film (OTF) electronic flash automation. In other words, the FM3a merged the robust mechanical systems of the FM2N with the proven, reliable electronic exposure controls of the FE2. The FM3a is built to a high level of workmanship and material quality. It shares the advantages of the FM and the FM2n, both generally regarded as two of the most reliable cameras ever built (both in terms of operation under extreme conditions and in day-to-day reliability reports from repair shops and magazine surveys). It has an extremely strong body of copper silumin alloy. The electronics are well protected within the body and of extremely high quality, including the flexible circuits. The FM3a's film transport consists of high-strength hardened metal gears and moving parts, mounted on clusters of ball bearings. The vertical metal shutter utilises precision tapered high-strength aluminium alloy blades and oilless self-lubricating bearings. The guide rails are made of stainless steel. The mirror is made of titanium. It is large to reduce chances of vignetting with super-telephotos of up to 800 mm, and uses the same mechanism found on Nikon's pro F2, with some improvements designed to further reduce effects of vibration and mirror bounce. The FM3A accepts all of the Nikkor lenses with the Nikon F bayonet mount that support the Automatic Indexing (AI) feature (AI, AIS), first introduced in 1977.[2] The chrome FM3A was often sold in a kit that includes a color coordinated chrome finished Nikkor 45 mm f/2.8P lens. This special flat "pancake" lens was manually focused on the FM3a, but contained a CPU which could communicate focal distance to Nikon's later autofocus (AF) camera bodies. Other accessories for the FM3A include the Nikon MD-12 motor drive (automatic film advance up to 3.2 frames per second), as well as the Nikon MF-16 databack (sequential numbering, time or date stamping on the film), and the various compatible Nikon TTL flashes (SB-15, SB-16b, SB-20, etc.) In manual mode, the camera is completely mechanical in operation, and only requires batteries for the light metering information system. In aperture priority mode, the batteries continue to power the meter, but are also utilized for shutter timing and the exposure control electronics. The FM3A's metering information system consists of a match-needle system using two needles pointing along a vertical shutter speed scale on the left side of the viewfinder to indicate the readings of the built-in 60/40% centerweighted silicon photodiode light meter versus the actual camera settings. This system can be traced back to the Nikkormat EL (Nikomat EL in Japan) of 1972. The viewfinder also has Nikon's fully-interchangeable bright focus screen with various options for focus. During the mid 1990s, a demand arose among some photographers for a quality manual-focus alternative to the 35 mm autofocus SLR camera. These cameras required complex computer and processing mechanisms, and especially in their amateur and consumer versions, were known for neither their ruggedness nor a long service life. Nikon owners began to demand a durable, precision-made camera with the AE electronic features and prized construction of the discontinued Nikon FE2, which had begun to skyrocket in value on the secondhand market. Nikon responded to this phenomenon with a revival of their classic FM/FE series design. The FM3A's expensive construction and conservative design were not intended to appeal to the consumer-level market. Nikon instead marketed the camera to serious amateur and professional photographers who were desirous of the highest possible quality and precision of control, and a service life estimated not in years, but decades. HISTORIC NOTES: The FM3A's introduction coincided with a major technological revolution in photographic technologydigital imaging. Many photographers, professional and amateur alike, switched to digital, resulting in a huge decrease in film SLR sales. By 2004, annual sales of digital cameras had surpassed those of film cameras. Though FM3a sales remained steady, they were minuscule in volume compared to Nikon's other cameras, and steadily increasing costs forced Nikon to announce the discontinuation of the FM3a on 11 January 2006, leaving only the expensive and heavily electronic Nikon F6 in Nikon's internationally available 35mm film SLR line. Since the announcement of the FM3a's discontinuance, value on the secondhand market of the FM3a camera (and its FM2 predecessors) appreciably increased.

Nikon FM2/T Year of the Dog 1994
ULTRA RARE - COLLECTOR'S GRADE - NUMBER 62 OF 300 EVER MADE! PERHAPS THE LAST BRAND NEW ONE REMAINING IN THE WORLD. BOXED AND COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL PAPERWORK, CHINESE LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION BOOKLET AND WARRANTY CARD. (STILL HAS IT'S SHUTTER GUARD INTACT TO BE REMOVED PRIOR TO FIRST USE.) The Nikon FM2/FM2n's reputation as a tough, rugged and reliable camera was further enhanced when, during the late 1993 Nikon introduced the FM2/T. It is identical to the standard FM2n, including its aluminium alloy chassis, except that the titanium is used for the top and base plates and the camera back. No other specifications were changed and the FM2/T accepts all the same accessories. There's also been a couple of special limited editions of the camera; the Year of the Dog version of which only 300 units were produced, was released in 1994 and has a picture of a dogs head engraved on the front place next to the FM2/T badge. The Dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac. The 12 zodiac animals are, in order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to the 12-year-cycle. Years of the Dog: 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030 The FM2/T Year of the Dog was never exported to the UK. This brand new example is the 62nd example made and is a real collector's treasure!

Nikon FE2 body, chrome
The FE2 is a battery powered electro-mechanically controlled manual focus SLR with manual exposure control or aperture priority auto exposure. It has a match-needle exposure control system using two needles pointing along a vertical shutter speed scale on the left side of the viewfinder to indicate the readings of the built-in 60/40 percent centre weighted light meter versus the actual camera settings. This system continued until 2006 with the Nikon FM3A. The viewfinder also has an interchangeable Type K2 focusing screen with Nikon's standard 3 mm split image rangefinder and 1 mm microprism collar focusing aids plus 12 mm etched circle indicating the area of the meter centre weighting. The major improvements in the FE2 compared to the FE are silicon photodiode light meter sensors, internal printed circuit electronics, provision for through-the-lens (TTL) off-the-film (OTF) electronic flash automation (essentially identical to the system introduced in the Nikon FG in 1982) and a quartz oscillator timed, bearing-mounted, titanium-bladed shutter reaching an ultra-fast top speed of 1/4000th second (plus world's fastest X-sync to 1/250th second). This design is an improved electronically controlled version of the mechanical shutter introduced in the Nikon FM2, with eight honeycomb-patterned blades instead of nine and shutter curtain travel time further reduced to 3.3 milliseconds from 3.6 milliseconds. The FE2 also introduced a unique rotating flywheel plus inertial mass damping system to minimize mirror shock vibration effects and obviate the need for a mirror lockup feature.

Nikon F2 Photomic body, chrome
The F2 was manufactured from September 1971 to June 1980. It used a horizontal-travel focal plane shutter with titanium shutter curtains and a speed range of 1 to 1/2000th second (up to 10 seconds using the self timer) plus Bulb and Time, and flash X-sync of 1/80th second. The Nikon F2 camera body consists of the die-cast aluminum alloy shell, base plate, mirror box, front cover, top plate, bottom cover and camera back. The entire body was made up each of its 1,506 component parts designed, processed, finished and assembled as Nikon F2, widely regarded as the best mechanical SLR camera during its time back in the seventies. The original Nikon F2 Photomic, packaged with the Nikon DP-1 head, was manufactured from 1971 to 1977. The DP-1 had a center-the-needle exposure control system using a galvanometer needle pointer moving between horizontally arranged +/ over/underexposure markers at the bottom of the viewfinder to indicate the readings of the built-in 60/40 percent centerweighted, cadmium sulfide (CdS) light meter versus the photographer's actual camera selections. Flanking the needle array on the left and right were a readout of the camera set f-stop and shutter speed, respectively. The needle array was duplicated on the top of the DP-1 head to allow exposure control without looking through the viewfinder.

Launched in 1977 the F2AS Photomic offered the most sophisticated metered prism among all finders available for the Nikon F2. F2AS was also regarded by many Nikon fans and collectors alike as being the most collectible among all regular production Nikon SLR models as it represented the best and finest example of camera body mechanical excellence of the seventies stretching the design and precision production to the limit. In fact, when the electronic Nikon F3 was introduced officially to replace the Nikon F2, the F2AS was commanding a higher premium in its retailed price than the new third generation professional camera. The F2AS was the very last all-mechanical Nikon camera with removable Photomic finder and incorporated the new AI (Auto Indexing) system.

The combination of the basic F2 body and the DP-11 Photomic finder provides the Nikon F2A Photomic camera with a ruggedness and versatility that make it an ideal choice for general purpose photographic applications. The DP-11 finder fitted on this camera features the renowned centre-weighted, TTL metering system that concentrates 60% of the light reading in only one-eight of the image area, while simultaneously covering the entire field. As a result, this camera provides greater responsiveness for metering under varying lighting conditions and, with a range covering EV 1 to EV 17, fully suitable to meet the needs of all but the most extreme lighting conditions. Other features of the F2A camera include the display of exposure information within the viewfinder and atop the finder assembly, the convenience of AI meter for quicker lens mounting and the capacity for both full-aperture and stop-down exposure measurement. Shutter: Horizontal -travel focal-plane shutter; speeds of from 1 to 1/2000 second and "B"; speeds of from 2 to 10 seconds available via built-in self-timer; intermediate settings possible between 1/80 and 1/2000 second- shutter release via shutter button or self-timer Flash synchronization: Automatic selection as shutter speed is set; hotshoe contact with built-in safety switch provided; one threaded PC terminal provided for off-camera flash operation Synchronization range: 1/2000 -1/125 sec., 1/30 - I sec. and "B" for FP bulbs; 1/30 -1 sec. and "B" for M and MF bulbs; 1/80 -1 sec. and "B" for electronic flash Accessory shoe: Special Nikon-type built into body,fitted with hotshoe contact and electric safety switch which turns on contact as flash unit is mounted.

NEW/UNUSED. FLAWLESS AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE. Nikon introduced a rare and expensive version of the iconic F2 in tiny quantities with prism cover, back, lens surround area, top plate and bottom plate made of this (at the time) expensive and unusual metal. The already ultra-robust F2 body (picked by NASA for it's demanding space program) was further strengthened by this light and hard (Ti) element (rather than alloy) material. The F2 Titan is one of the most eagerly sought of all Nikon reflex bodies and few are ever seen in unused condition.

Nikon F High Speed Sapporo Camera
In 1971 there was an update to the Nikon/Nikkormat Handbook in which stated the announcement of a new motor drive for the Nikon F-series cameras. This motor drive permitted shooting up to seven frames per second (fps). It was a modified version of the Nikon F-36 motor drive, which, with its maximum rate of four fps, would remain in production. The announcement reads: The seven fps rate [on the motor-drive] is controlled by a button on the front switch unit; the reflex viewing mirror must be in the lock-up position and only shutter speeds 1/250 to 1/1000 sec. can be used. Shooting rates of two to four fps and single frame are governed by a second button at the rear of the unit. At two fps, permissible shutter speeds are 1/8 to 1/1000 sec.. At three and four fps, speeds are 1/125 to 1/1000. A remote control socket is incorporated. Accessories include a battery pack, power cord and eye-level finder with an accessory shoe. Limited deliveries are expected in late 1971. The Nikon F High Speed 7 fps was supplied with an optical zoom viewfinder which had a range of 135-300mm. You could select the zoom range by rotating the rear dial as well as being able to adjust the built-in dioptres. Parallax could be adjusted just below the eyepiece by moving a lever to the focused distance. There were two variations of the Nikon F High Speed camera, the 7 fps announced in 1971 and the 9 fps in 1976. The 7 fps version was Nikons first High Speed Camera and was used at the Winter XI Olympic Winter Games held from 3rd to 13th February 1972 in Sapporo, Hokkaidō, Japan. Amongst collectors it has become known as the Nikon F High Speed Sapporo. According to our research, only 54 examples of this camera were made, making it one of the rarest and most desirable of all Nikon cameras.

The FE uses a metal-bladed, vertical travel focal plane shutter with a speed range of 8 to 1/1000 second, plus Bulb, and flash X-sync of 1/125th second. It had dimensions of 89.5 millimetres (3.52 in) height, 142 mm (5.6 in) width, 57.5 mm (2.26 in) depth and 590 grams (21 oz) weight. It was available in two finishes: black with chrome trim and the rarer all black. As on the FM, its model designation did not appear on the front of the camera, but was engraved as a small "FE" preceding the serial number on the rear of the housing. The FE was the replacement for Nikon EL2 of 1977 and was a member of the classic Nikon compact F-series. It used a rugged copper aluminum alloy chassis developed from the one introduced in the Nikon FM in 1977, with minor external controls and cosmetic differences.

The Nikon Corporation issued a comment on the F5 Anniversary model as follows: 50th Anniversary Model of Nikon F5. In 1998, two years after the introduction of F5, we at Nikon marked the 50th anniversary of our camera production from the first release of Nikon I in 1948. In commemoration of this, we decided to offer the 50th Anniversary Model, which was designed based on the F5 with changes in the colour of the upper body cover and body cap to a sober dark silver colour, and the rubber of the oval section of the grip to a dark grey, adding a quality appearance to the camera. On the front of the viewfinder was inscribed the same Nikon logo as adopted in first Nikon I rangefinder camera of 1948, and the back of body was marked with the former company logo of Nippon Kogaku K.K.(Japan Optical) and the symbol for 50th Anniversary of Nikon Camera. This was the only variation model of F5."

*Definition: Nikon digital SLRs have either an FX or a DX sensor. The FX sensor, measuring 24x36mm, is roughly equivalent to the size of the 35mm film frame. The DX sensor is smaller, measuring 15.8x23.6mm.

DX-NIKKOR lenses are engineered and optimized for use on Nikon DX-format D-SLRs and are designed to cover the smaller image area of the DX sensor. When a DX lens is mounted on an FX-format Nikon D-SLR, the cameras DX-Crop Mode is automatically engaged, introducing a 1.5x magnification (cropping) factor.
