The Nikon 28Ti was released in 1994. The name referring to the 28mm f/2.8 Nikkor lens and the titanium camera body. Its most distinguishing feature is the analogue display on top. This watch-like display enables the user to operate the camera from the waist. It clearly displays the focusing distance and aperture. Two smaller dials show exposure compensation (plus or minus two stops) and the number of shots taken. The latter dial doubles as a self-timer. Four needle-style dials indicate focusing distance, aperture, frame number and exposure correction. The 28Ti had been preceded by the 1993 35Ti. Both are 135 film autofocus cameras with wide angle prime lenses. Nikon aimed at producing an easy to transport compact camera of the highest possible optical quality (hence, unlike other Nikon compacts the lenses are called/engraved Nikkor) with a single focal length for photography enthusiasts. In 1998 Nikon decided to discontinue both cameras, complexity of manufacture and the ensuing very high price contributed greatly to the decision. The camera remains greatly in demand and represents a pinnacle of compact camera design and optical quality. C/w CS-L101 leather pouch case, wrist strap, maker’s box.
