but I would like you to understand

Thank you

I have written columns on film SLR camera eye-level finders made by various Japanese manufacturers.
This time we will be looking at Nikon’s manual focus film SLR camera eye-level finder design released in 1978.

Nikon FE (Reference product)

This film SLR camera with a steel silver body was released in 1978.

Front. The maker’s logo is an engraved type.

This is an angle from the diagonal front.

The design is quite elaborate, with the manufacturer’s logo highlighted.

View from the side.
The angle of the face from the face of the manufacturer’s logo area to the top edge is slightly steeper. The angle from the top of the top to the back is gentle.
The height of the accessory shoe is the same as the height of the top apex.

This is the top surface. It is made of the same material as the grip on the body.

The back side.
The design of the eye-level finder can be clearly seen from the rear.

View from diagonally behind.
The design is simple, consisting mainly of straight lines with few curved surfaces.

In this issue, we have introduced the eye-level finder of Nikon’s 1978 release manual focus SLR camera.

I have written various columns about eye-level finder designs in the past, and this Nikon FE has a massive eye-level finder design.

We will continue to introduce more and more Nikon film cameras in the future, so please look forward to it!

Thank you again for reading this column.
