Nikon Film Cameras
Nikon film cameras are commonly used by photography professionals, students, artists and advanced amateur photographers. Such cameras provide photographers with unsurpassed high resolution image quality using different models of camera, lens and grades of film.
Photographing with film
Viewed by many enthusiasts as a real art form, film photography is the preference by many photography purists as it allows for artistic control offered by the manual processes involved and the great creative satisfaction in its end results.
Nikon film cameras are available as compact, medium format, rangefinder, SLR and underwater cameras across models which include the Nikon EM, Nikon F, Nikon F3, Nikon FM and Nikon Zoom 70. All Nikon film cameras are available as auto, auto and manual, manual and fixed focus types incorporating either APS (Advanced Photo System) or 35mm film formats.
Nikon film cameras have a range of different benefits to create stunning photos including various shooting modes, red-eye reduction, built-in flash, viewfinders with dioptric adjustment and underwater features.
Nikon F Series
Following the Nikon F and F2 and first launched in 1980 the Nikon F3 series cameras are still considered some of the best pro-cameras for film photography, having the most model variations of any Nikon F series camera. This tough professional standard camera has manual focus and manual and automatic exposure control for use with manual and most Nikon AF lenses .
The Nikon F3 was the first of the cameras in this series to be styled by Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and is characterised by its thin red stripe on the handgrip. This design element and its variants would become a signature feature of many Nikon cameras.
First introduced in 1977, the Nikon FM paved the way for the brand's highly successful range of compact semi-professional cameras. This durable model is almost entirely built of metal and is of mechanical construction and so needs no batteries. With adjustable electronic shutter speeds (1 to 1/1000 seconds) it delivers blur-free images even when shooting fast moving objects. The FM is compatible with all Nikon F bayonet lenses, offering flexibility of use.
