Introduced in 1975. In many areas, the Nikkormat closely resembles earlier model, the Nikkormat FTn but it has an additional accessory shoe contact which permits the use for of direct shoe mount flash apart from a single screw-threaded 3 mm (PC) flash contact at the left hand side of the body. (The FTn, however, had double 3 mm (PC) flash socket (M or X synchronized), there is no hot shoe and film-speed setting lock). Another significant difference is the meter circuit of the FT2 is powered by a more environmental friendlier 1.5v silver-oxide cell instead of the FTn’s 1.3-volt mercury cell.

Systematically-positioned controls for picture taking ease, a convenient hot shoe flash unit mount for simplified flash photography and the extensive possibilities of the Nikon photographic system to further enhance the capabilities of the Nikkormat FT2.

Design

The camera body is made of a die-cast aluminium alloy and finished in either chrome plating or black and thus give it such a distinctive solid feel. Since all Nikkormat bodies are built to supplement the professional bodies of the F2. It has a non-interchangeable eye-level prism finder with built-in, through-the-lens centre-weighted exposure meter providing 92% of the picture field. The standard K screen has a matte-fresnel field and central split-image rangefinder surrounded by a micro-prism collar. Both shutter speed and lens aperture information are visible in the viewfinder. There are two way to check the meter reading, inside the viewfinder or externally on the top plate. As any other mechanical Nikkormats, the depth-of-field preview button is also locates at the top plate and a featured similar mirror lock-up control. Shutter speeds are set by a ring round the lens mount, and ASA speeds by an index below the lens. This index is locked unless the catch on the shutter speed setting lever is pulled.
