Nikon F2A Photomic body, chrome

£525.00

The item photographed may not be the actual model but is used for illustrative purposes only.

Very clean, late example of this body, fitted with A screen.
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-eight 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 Accessory shoe: Special Nikon-type built into body,fitted with hotshoe contact and electric safety switch which turns on contact as flash unit is mounted.

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
