What was once considered a revolutionary camera when it was launched in 1983, this cool SLR is still a great performer!
Innovative metering system - an early testbed for the current and much copied 'Matrix Metering' system commonly found in many Nikon AF cameras as well as those of competitors
Back in the old days, the Nikon introduced the FA and that was the birth of their much copied matrix metering system. Even now, you’ll find that in many of their AF cameras. The aperture priority as well as full manual as an option has made this camera a favourite of many.
Some refer it as the ‘techno camera’. It operates on 2 LR44 batteries and has a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000. The ISO settings range from 12 to 3200. There is a little button somewhere below the lens that allows you to switch from matrix metering to center weighted metering. Very handy option I’d say.
I’d definitely recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a film SLR that does it all at a very affordable price.

Think Princess Leia and her double in that glorious gold costume, plus a photo of the new cast in roundtable discussion.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
