Nikon F4 with AF Nikkkor 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5 lens. The camera also comes with a camera strap!

This camera is still considered by many to be one of the most capable, tough and ergonomically brilliant professional 35mm SLR cameras ever made!

The Nikon F4 is a 35mm SLR film camera, first introduced in 1988 as the next generation in Nikon's line of F series professional cameras. With industrial design by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the F4 was the first professional Nikon to feature a practical autofocus system. The F4 operates with any lens ever made for the F-mount within the functional limitations associated with the lens put on the camera. The auto-focus works as a focus-assist on most manual lenses at full aperture. Using pre-AI lenses, the stop-down metering will apply. AI lenses may be used in Aperture-priority automatic exposure mode, while AF lenses can be used in Shutter-priority and Program-modes as well.

The F4 is larger and heavier than its predecessors and is closely integrated with its accessories, especially its range of finders, backs and battery packs, to better adapt it to the task at hand. It weighs 1,5 kilogram (3.3 lbs) in its basic form ready to shoot with a standard F1.4 lens while changing to MB21 adds 0.2 kilograms (0.44 lbs). The F4 is almost completely battery dependent, only film rewind may be performed manually, but it uses the universally available standard AA batteries, which should be fresh for trouble-free operation using the MB-20. The Nikon F4 is built to very high specifications, the fastest shutter speed is 1/8000 sec. The camera has a secondary shutter to ensure absolutely no stray light reaches the film, like when changing the lens in bright daylight. A small wiper assures the AF unit is dust-free.

There are three Continuous drive modes on the F4: CH, CL and CS for High, Low and Silent modes. The speed of the film advance is determined by the battery pack attached. The F4 also features manual or automatic film rewind, optional viewfinder information illumination, and fingertip control buttons for metering, focus and aperture lock. Available metering modes are determined by the viewfinder attached. The DP-20 finder features spot, centre-weighted and matrix metering. The range of finders available includes a waist-level finder, a high-magnification finder and a large-format viewfinder for using the camera in situations where you cannot bring your eye to the viewfinder.
