Item details

Beautiful condition. Super clean. I am not a camera expert. I acquired this at a Florida estate sale many years ago. I am happy to answer any and all questions to the best of my ability.

Designed to facilitate underwater photography, the Nikon NIKONOS-III 35mm camera is suitable for amateur and professional underwater photographers. The sturdy construction of this Nikon film camera consists of three main sections that interlock with each other to form a watertight unit that works well even at depths of 50 m. To capture well-illuminated shots, this 35mm camera offers you five film speeds. The simple controls of the Nikon NIKONOS-III camera give you a user-friendly operation. The excellent optical quality delivered by this Nikon film camera makes it a popular choice amongst underwater photographers.
