Nikomat/Nikorrmat FT2

The Nikkormats are well documented cameras online a simple search will find a lot more information then I have, since I have one and see it is not yet represented on camerapedia…


The Nikkormat FT-2(1975-1977) The last of the Pre-AI Nikkormats .

Manual indexing on the FT-2 When attaching a lens it must be set at F/5.6 so the camera’s meter coupling pin will be aligned with the lens’s meter coupling fork(rabbit ears) above F/5.6 then you must rack the aperture ring all the way back and forth so the camera will know the maximum aperture of the lens.
