Complete with maker’s carrying case. A specialised version of a Nikon F camera, the Nikon F Hand Fundus Camera is designed for close-up ophthalmic photography of the retina of the human eye.
Serial numbers began with 670001, making this example number 19. Our research suggests that the camera was released in 1963 and discontinued in 1969.
The built-in flash unit is connected to the control unit by a cable and has three power settings: L=Low, M=Medium and H= High. The camera is fitted with a pistol grip for one-hand operation.
