Lomopedia: Nikon 35Ti

Perhaps one of the quirky yet interesting compact snappers you can shoot with, the Nikon 35Ti was Nikon's first answer to the booming market for high-end 35mm compact cameras.

Introduced by Nikon in 1993, the 35Ti was a 35mm compact camera that became easily recognizable for its elegant boxy design, and the quirky analog display system (showing exposure number, aperture, distance, and under/overexposure compensation) on its top plate. It was equipped with a sharp 35mm f/2.8 Nikkor lens controlled either manually or through an infrared autofocus system. It also has a built-in electronic flash, switches, and buttons for selecting several operating modes, all encased in a lightweight yet rugged titanium body. Its name actually stands for its 35 (mm lens) and Titanium body.

While some say that Nikon came in late in the so-called compact camera wars with this offering, many still regard the 35Ti as one of the best non-SLR 35mm film cameras made. A year later, the 28Ti was launched, which was essentially the 28mm-lensed version that came in a black body, and had slide switches instead of push buttons for operating the flash.

    Flying the Canon Flag with the Canon EOS-1N

    Who do you think deserves the crown for the best 35mm SLR camera? Canon and Nikon will always be in a two-horse race to the top spot in the consumer to prosumer SLR/DSLR market, having developed reputations as two of the biggest go-to brands. Representing the Canon corner, I can safely say the Canon EOS-1N is by far the best SLR I have ever used.
