Nikomat FT3 SLR offers high quality performance and durability common to its predecessors, but with the basic simplicity of design that has made the Nikkormat camera popular with amateur and professional alike. It has systematically-positioned controls for photographing ease. The metering system provides centre-weighted through-the-lens meter measurement at full or shooting aperture. Its film speed ranges from ASA 12 to 1600 and shutter speed of 1 to 1/1000th second, plus Bulb. The FT2 is compatible with AI-lenses and most Nikon F and F2 accessories; however, the FT3 employs non-interchangeable finders, screens, motor drives and backs.
