Nikonos 1 with original camera strap!
The Nikonos 1 is a 24 x 36 film format, all-weather viewfinder camera. It is meter-less camera as it has no light meter within. The shutter employed a vertically travel metal focal plane type of design with shutter speed range working quite narrow from 1/30 to 1/500 sec (with settings from 30, 60, 125, 250 & 500*). plus an additional Bulb setting (flash connection for FP and X). Basic features includes a bright line finder with parallax marks, auto film reset counter and the accessory shoe for attaching other finders. Flash synchronization requires cable connection (via adapter) and sync at 1/60 sec. for electronic flash. Despite its relative compact size, but the cast aluminum body actually weighs quite heavily at approx. 700 g. The film advance lever actually doubles as shutter lock. The trade name of Nikonos I was actually marketed after Nikon (Nippon Kogaku) acquired the Calypso patent from the French firm. It actually works not just underwater, but both on underwater as well as for general photography out of water. The standard lense, UW-35mm f/2.5 actually deprived from an optical formula like the RF-Nikkor 35mm f/2.5 lens for the Nikon rangefinder.
