Nikon F5 body

£475.00

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

Boxed and complete. Nikon’s most expensive film camera (when sold side by side with the F6 prior to discontinuation the F5 at around £2500 was the more expensive body). The multi-award winning Nikon F5 is the benchmark against which all other SLR cameras are judged. The F5 is the only film camera in the world that uses a 1005 pixel RGB metering sensor to measure the colour of a scene for supreme exposure accuracy. It features high speed Autofocus at up to 8 frames per second (with MN-30 Ni-MH battery) and is housed in an aluminium-alloy body with a titanium viewfinder. It can take standard, action, waist and magnification finders and a vast range of screens. Intelligent, fast and tough enough for the most challenging of assignments.

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.
