TESTED AND FULLY WORKING: Nikon Nikkorex F 35mm Film Camera with Nikkor SC 50mm f/1.4 Lens
Nikkorex F, made by Mamiya for Nikon, also sold as Nikkor J. Introduced in 1962, it was the first production single-lens reflex camera with the vertically travelling metal Copal Square shutter.
Superior to the true Nikkorexes in every way, with solid metal construction, interchangeable lenses, and an early version of what was to be a highly revolutionary shutter.
- In essence, the camera is an intermediate between the Nikkorexes and the Nikons. It lacks the deluxe features of the F-series such as interchangeable finders, while having the same mount and arguably a better shutter than the original F.
At a time when the focal-plane shutter had existed in roughly the same form for many decades, the vertical-moving Copal Square was a welcome change, with collapsing metal blinds rather than delicate and degradable cloth curtains. Mechanical Copal Square shutters tend to be resistant to falls and vibration and give X-sync at higher speed (1/125th, in this case) due to the increased speed at which the blinds move and the shorter distance which they travel (across the height rather than the width of the frame).
- Shutter speeds above 1/125th are in green on the dial, while 1/125th-1 second are marked in orange and B is marked in white.
The self-timer intervenes in the exposure process after the mirror has been raised and the aperture has been stopped down, but before the shutter has been fired.
The timer can be set at less than the maximum time
The timer is controlled by the shutter-release button, and it can be both charged and released without cocking the shutter, unlike some cameras' self-timer.
