Only 1 left in stock



The combination of the basic F2 body and the DP-11 Photomic finder provides the Nikon F2A Photomic camera with a ruggedness and versatility that make it an ideal choice for general purpose photographic applications. The DP-11 finder fitted on this camera features the renowned centre-weighted, TTL metering system that concentrates 60% of the light reading in only one-eighth of the image area, while simultaneously covering the entire field. As a result, this camera provides greater responsiveness for metering under varying lighting conditions and, with a range covering EV 1 to EV 17, fully suitable to meet the needs of all but the most extreme lighting conditions. Other features of the F2A camera include the display of exposure information within the viewfinder and atop the finder assembly, the convenience of AI meter for quicker lens mounting and the capacity for both full-aperture and stop-down exposure measurement.

Shutter: Horizontal -travel focal-plane shutter; speeds of from 1 to 1/2000 second and “B”; speeds of from 2 to 10 seconds available via built-in self-timer; intermediate settings possible between 1/80 and 1/2000 second- shutter release via shutter button or self-timer
Flash synchronization: Automatic selection as shutter speed is set; hotshoe contact with built-in safety switch provided; one threaded PC terminal provided for off-camera flash operation
Synchronization range: 1/2000 -1/125 sec., 1/30 – I sec. and “B” for FP bulbs; 1/30 -1 sec. and “B” for M and MF bulbs; 1/80 -1 sec. and “B” for electronic flash
