“I've got one Nikon F2Photomic (DP-1), three F2-S,...”

Written on: 05/07/2009

I've got one Nikon F2Photomic (DP-1), three F2-S, (DP-2), and two F2-AS, (DP-12).
That should say just about everything.
The camera bodies are nearly bulletproof, and the finders pretty well function like the proverbial Times.
I've got F3's for some work, but the F2's get the lions share of use… Read Full Review

“I have the "Titan" nikon F2 version and it's my...”

Written on: 14/04/2009 by mohawk (1 review written)

I have the "Titan" nikon F2 version and it's my workhorse. It's a collectors camera but I still take it out in the field. The thought of it just sitting on some shelf as a collectors item just doesn't seem right. I take very good care of it and it's in a case - always! It was bought brand new with the original box and papers. Absolutely never used until now (2009). Why never used, I don't know. I can tell by the film advance lever. It feels like my very first new F2 many years ago. They just… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/08/2008

I was involved in multiscreen 35mm presentations and used a pinregister adapted Nikon F2 as my rostrum camera and the Nikon Macro lens. Again reliability was expected and I was never let down. Multi LCDs have not yet managed to emulate the impact of multi 35mm projectors… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2007 by photoman (62 reviews written)

I bought this camera used but in great condition for my collection 5 years ago.
Nikon F2 is top of the line professional 35mm SLR camera of 70'. It is the last hand made professional Nikon. More than 800,000 units produced.

It has titan-foil horizontally traveling shutter with fully machanically controlled speeds 1-1/2000 and flash sync on 1/80. Shutter holds more than 150,000 exposure cycles.
Nikon F2 is extremely high quality camera, it has great body finish and precise mechanics.

I have used my F2 with a standard prism for 32 years. I bought it new, and it gets serviced every 5 years. I put about 1000 rolls of film through it every year, and it keeps on going. What more can I say ?… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/03/2004 by notnilc23 (1 review written)

I've owned this Nikon F2 35mm SLR camera for the past 10 years and its never let me down and I doubt it ever will. No it isnt like the modern marvels that to my mind take away a lot of the photographers thinking. I've owned and used many SLR's Olympus OM1 Leica R3 and Mamiya RZ, ALL GREAT CAMERAS and all have their own merits but theres just something about the F2 that feels different. To my mind its easy to use at speed when your used to it and has never caused me any probs in that dept. Many… Read Full Review

“If you get an F2, the DP-11 finder makes it an F2AS...”

Written on: 21/07/2003 by shutterbug. (1 review written)

If you get an F2, the DP-11 finder makes it an F2AS which is the most advanced and desireable configuration with AI lens indexing. One of the nicest things about the F2 is that it won't leave you in the lurch if your batteries die and it uses readily available MS-76 silver oxide or A-76 alkaline batteries.
You can also use virtually every Nikon SLR lens ever made except for the new G-series (no aperture ring...aperture is set electronically on the newest low-end Nikons). Other than that, you… Read Full Review

Efrolich's Response to shutterbug.'s Review

Written on: 11/09/2014

If you have a Nikon F2 with a DP11 the combination would be known as A F2A If your F2 has a DP-12 it would be a F2AS. The difference is in the meter cells of de Prism. DP-11 CDS and DP-12 has more advanced SPD cells.

Written on: 26/11/2002 by Chris Williams. (1 review written)

Let's see, I've used Minoltas, Leicas (rangefinders and SLRs), Pentaxs, Mamiyas and Cannons, yet the Nikon F-2AS has been my consistent favorite. Now many people say that it isn't the camera that takes a great picture, it's the camera's lens. That is true to some extent, but here's an important point they often overlook. When you push the shutter release of a F-2, something is going to happen. Either a good or bad picture will be taken, but click the shutter will, irrespective of whether the… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/03/2002 by Fastone. (1 review written)

The Nikon F2 is the last hand made Professional camera made by Nikon. The early models in the s/n71xxxx had a small problem with film backlash. This is really noticed when a motor drive is attached. I wouuld stay away from the early models for this reason. If it can be fixed it is expensive. Other than that caveat the camera is fantastic. I have shot professionally for years with an Nikon F, then an F3. I bought an F2 for fun. It has been without a doubt my favorite camera to casually shoot… Read Full Review

René Haayes.'s Response to Fastone.'s Review

Written on: 24/10/2002

Hi, i can buy a F2 for just 100 pounds (€150,--) Should I do it.....OH YES!!!! It's in the original suitcase, with motordrive, flash and lenses. This is a very good buy I guess!!! It also has an optional double flash for portraitphotografy. (one flash on either side of the camera) It will provide me some photo-fun for many many years!

Written on: 04/02/2002 by Carl. (1 review written)

I used a Nikon F2 35mm SLR camera in the early 80s and never enjoyed making pictures so much as with that camera. Unfortunately, a previous owner had allowed it to take a swim, and when it jammed, the repairman declared it a rusted loss. I kept the screen and the DP-1 against the day another F2 came my way and used an FE and the FT2 I'd had for a decade. After some years of neglect, I picked up a Retina IIa (almost got a digicam) just for kicks and had so much fun I started shooting a lot, with… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2002 by Mike Wilde. (1 review written)

If youre after a ben all singing bells and whistles camera then the Nikon F2 35mm SLR camera is not for you! However, its sheer robustness and quality make it a beauty of a camera. If you can handle centre weighed metering and manual focus, then there is no better SLR. The system back up is vast, and the lens quality legendary. This camera is like taking out a classic car for a spin, well worth the extra effort!… Read Full Review

“The F2 is everything a camera should be. Many will...”

Written on: 10/04/2001 by Michael Helms. (1 review written)

The F2 is everything a camera should be. Many will argue that it is heavy; I personally think this is one of the most comfortable and well balanced cameras ever made; most of the modern lightweight cameras feel too flimsy to me. The shutter release is positive, and everything just seems to fall at your fingertips - there when you need it, but not obtrusive or in-the-way.

The Photomic prisms suffer from the typical old-Nikon woe - once the ring resister wears out, it's tough to get repaired… Read Full Review

I love this camera, i'm not taking pictures anymore with the 2 photomic bodies i have, because they are becoming a collectors camera, but they are really exellent cameras, compared to my other cameras (90x, F5, fm2 + md12, mamiya 645 and RZ, fujy ga, pentax me super, and bronicas), they are true working beasts, once the others i have are just, in comparaison, toy's… Read Full Review
