Item details

Vintage Camera Nikon Nikomat FT

I get a real kick out of cruising antique shops, flea markets, and estate sales finding awesome, unique cameras (sometimes ones I've never seen) and then fixing them up, cleaning them and selling them, hopefully to you. This camera is one of the select few I choose to take home and refurbish and hopefully you'll feel the same way once it's in your hands.

Unearthed in a local flea market, still functions nicely though in need of a good CLA

The Nikkormat FT was an all-metal, mechanically (springs, gears, levers) controlled, manual focus SLR with match-needle exposure control, manufactured in Japan from 1965 to 1967. It was available in two colors: black with chrome trim and all black. The unmetered version was designated "Nikkormat FS."

The FT had dimensions of 95 mm height, 146 mm width, 54 mm depth and 745 g weight. This was larger and heavier than most competing amateur level SLRs of the mid-1960s, such as the Asahi (Honeywell in the USA) Pentax Spotmatic of 1964, but the quality of the internal components gave the FT an amazing strength and durability.

The FT used a metal-bladed, vertical travel, focal plane shutter with a speed range of 1 to 1/1000 second plus Bulb and flash X-sync of 1/125th second. The Nikkormat F-series had a shutter speed ring concentric with the lens mount, unlike Nippon Kogaku's other manual focus SLRs with a top mounted shutter speed dial.


FAQs

As I don't make my cameras I can't do custom orders, tell me what you're looking for though and I'll add it to my list for when I go camera hunting.

It's highly recommended with any of the cameras that I sell that you head to your local camera shop after purchase for cleaning, lubrication and any adjustments that need to be made to the cameras before use.

I package all the cameras with utmost concern for damage mitigation. many times I have professionals package them so that I don't make any mistakes.

As a one man shop I cannot possibly guarantee that all my cameras are in perfect condition. The buyer is responsible for asking questions and reading about the condition before purchase and caring for the camera after purchase. I will do my best to address any issues in the item description but some things I may miss. These cameras are all old and operating issues come with the territory. My process as a seller is to assess condition, purchase, clean and fix minor issues and to sell. If you are not happy with your camera let me know as soon as possible and I will do what I can to help.
