Nikon F5 body + DP-30 viewfinder details

The Nikon F5 is Nikons most durable 35mm camera ever made. It is a beast of a camera and packs one hell of a punch, boasting an eight frames per second burst function. Furthermore, it is rain and dust resistant making it perfect for extreme conditions. It is no wonder this body was used by press and sports photographers around the world.

The body is electronically driven by eight AA batteries housed in the vertical handgrip. This ensures rapid (for its time) autofocus capabilities without the need to recharge the batteries any time soon. The F mount is compatible with all of the other lenses that fit the famous F line of Nikon bodies. This ensures that there is many good quality pieces of glass the choose from.

The viewfinder is known as the DP-30. A titanium housed prism that measures light for correct exposures and gives the user the possibility of choosing three different metering modes. These being: Point, average and centre weight measuring.

This Nikon f5 is for anyone who want to try their hand at analog photography. The camera feels good in the hand, almost like a tool. It is perfect for those who have been taking digital images and want the versatility of a digital camera but make it shoot film instead. All the features a modern camera has are there in the F5 only difference is you have to get your film developed.
