Nikkormat EL


The technical stuff:

Type: Single Lens Reflex

Lens: Fitted with a Nikkor 55mm f1.4

Shutter: Horizontal Blade Focal Plane



The "poor" mans version of the Nikon FM complete with Nikkor f1.4 lens. This particular example has suffered from being stored in poor conditions and has an issue with mould spots in the viewfinder, and the rear element of the lens is half closed with fungus. I have had the opportunity to use it in the field and the lens performed surprisingly well considering, but I did keep the aperture up to around f5.6-f11. There is no denying the engineering pedigree of this camera even though this is not the top of the range FM, it still has that feel of quality and solidity. As for features it's not short on that score either with depth of field preview, mirror lock up and speeds from 1 - 1/1000 sec.
