The Nikon F-36 was Japan’s first motor drive for a 35mm reflex camera. It can be attached to all Nikon F cameras, although first the bottom plate must be exchanged for one adapted to accept a motor drive. It’s equipped with a selector switch for L (2 frames per second), M1 (2.5 fps), M2 (3 fps), and H (4 fps only with the reflex mirror locked in the up position). Power is supplied by a separate 12 V battery pack. Power is supplied by a separate brown or black leather battery pack carried over the shoulder that holds eight size C batteries. Nikon later released the F-36 cordless battery pack which includes a detachable battery pack and hand grip with selection switch for single or sequence shots it is powered by eight 1.5v AA batteries.
