Nikon F3 - Camera

35mm manual focus F-mount SLR camera released by Nikon in March 1980. First of Nikon's professional SLRs to require a battery, which made professionals avoid it at first in favor of the previous fully mechanical F2. Over time the F3 proved to be reliable and the additions the electronics ended up bringing to the table, such as aperture-priority auto exposure and a LCD meter readout in the finder, turned out to be worth the departure from the fully mechanical functions. Versions were made until 2004, meaning it was produced longer than its successor, the Nikon F4, showing its eventual popularity among professionals and hobbyists alike. This also means it was the longest-produced professional Nikon SLR ever. The F3 was designed by Italian automotive designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, and its iconic red line on the left side of the camera lives on to this day with Nikons modern offerings. Features of the F3 include 1/60s flash sync, multi exposure capability, +/-2 exposure compensation and bunch of accessories such as interchangeable finders, focusing screens and motor drives. Metal body available in black or champagne (Titanium version) finish.
