Super-cool general purpose Nikon body, with built in winder that adds neither significant weight nor bulk. Four AAA batteries deliver a fast 2.5FPS. Four program modes (two Programmed auto, Aperture-priority, and Manual) make this functionally equivalent to a point and shoot SLR, minus the autofocus. Fits all AI and AIS Nikon mount lenses. Pictured here with my whopping Sigma AF 28-200 DL zoom, a great choice for AF bodies such as our often-used N6006 (unfortunately the built in flash casts shadows with this large lens). Very ruggedly built, it’s a great choice for tossing in a backpack and heading wherever the feet want to go.
The manual says to set to P for ease of use, the second range of Programmed auto modes (P HI) is essentially a high speed mode for moving subjects or when using a telephoto. There is an exposure lock lever on the front of the camera that saves the exposure setting in all auto modes for purpose of setting exposure and recomposing.
This camera is in good vintage condition, has been mechanically tested and appears to be in perfect working order. Mounted is a Kiron 50 mm F2 lens which has a small dent in the filter ring. This will not affect photo quality, but will prevent the user from attaching external filters.

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
