“The Nikon FA is the most advanced manual focus camera...”

General Comments
The Nikon FA is the most advanced manual focus camera that Nikon ever produced. It has programmed, aperture priority, shutter priority & manual modes. It was the first Nikon to feature multi-zone evaluative metering (in addition to being centre-weighted).

The FA is based on the FE chassis, this means that accessories designed for the FE/FM/FE2/FM2 will be suitable (the FM3a also can use these accessories).

The shutter speed range is from 1 sec to 1/4000 sec, with a flash sync of 1/250 (thanks to the titanium shutter blades).

All in all, a very capable camera. Expensive for its time (about £550), and they still fetch "good money" today.
