Nikkormat FT2 Nikon Vintage 35mm Film Camera with 50mm f/2 lens & caps
Another cool vintage 35mm film camera here. The Nikkormat FT2 will take lenses with an F mount. This one is in good shape but shows some wear and tear. Included with the camera and lens are the front and rear lens caps as well as a body cap.
The Nikkormat FT2, manufactured from 1975 to 1977, added a permanently affixed hot shoe to the top of the pentaprism cover, combined the two PC terminals into one and switched the light meter battery to a non-toxic silver cell, one 1.5 V S76 or SR44. ASA adjustment also featured a lock and an easier slider than previous models. The advance lever was more contoured with an added plastic grip. The FT2’s viewfinder also switched to Nippon Kogaku’s new standard Type K focusing screen with 3 mm split image rangefinder and 1 mm microprism collar focusing aids plus 12 mm etched circle indicating the area of the meter centerweighting. A final small touch was the addition of “+” and “-” symbols on the display of the top meter read-out. The numerous little improvements on the FT2 directly reflected customer suggestions for the FTn.
