Details: Nikon F Photomic

Manual focus F-mount SLR camera released by Nikon in 1959. It was the first camera to use the F mount and has interchangeable accessories such as prisms, grips, winders, and focusing screens. The camera combines many uncommon features of the era, including mirror lock-up, depth-of-field preview, and an instant return mirror. The F was arguably the first truly successful SLR system and managed to take a significant portion of the professional market away from rangefinder cameras. This Photomic model has the T, TN, or FTN prism attached, allowing for TTL light metering. Metal body available in silver and black.

Nikon F

Nikon introduced their first SLR, the Nikon F, in 1959. Alongside it they unveiled a series of lenses and a new lens mount that would carry them to professional success for the next decades. To this day, all Nikon DSLRs use the Nikon F mount.

In the beginning, Nikon lenses communicated aperture information to the body using a metal coupling fork, affectionately known as "bunny ears". Soon after, Nikon began using a similar system that automatically told the camera the maximum aperture of the lens. This Automatic Indexing (AI) system stuck around for decades in lenses and is still found on Nikon's high-end professional DSLRs even though new lenses communicate this information electronically.

With only minor compatibility issues (don't use a pre-AI lens on AI bodies or modern digital cameras), Nikon F lenses and bodies are pretty much interchangeable.
