The Nikon FA is the most advanced manual-focus camera ever designed by Nikon. Bear in mind that they billed it as the "Technocamera" at its 1983 introduction and a decade or two later it's still Nikon's most technically advanced manual focus camera, despite being discontinued in about 1988. Yeah.
The FA is the only camera on earth that can give Program auto exposure along with Matrix metering with all AI and AI-s manual-focus lenses. This may seem like a weird set of conditions, but if it’s important to you, then it’s important to you, you know? Unlike any newer Nikons, the FA is also the only camera with Matrix metering which can meter exposures of seemingly unlimited duration. Newer cameras stop at around 30 seconds of night exposure, while just like the FE, the FA will sit there for whole damn minutes clocking off perfect time exposure. Every time.
This one’s in fantastic cosmetic and mechanical condition, albeit missing the rubber eyepiece cap.
