sillyconguru's review of Nikon FA

★★★★★

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

Written on: 16/09/2004 by sillyconguru (1 review written)

Bad Points
No mirror lock-up.

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.
