Nikon MF Film Cameras

Nikon Speedlights, the ideal match for a Nikon film or digital SLR camera!

The first Nikon electronic flash (Speedlight) in the SB series SB-1 introduced for the Nikon F camera in 1971, since then there has been a steady flow of new models, some just offer new features or improved design and components, others reflect new types of control systems to match new innovations in the latest models of cameras.

Backward and forward compatibility can be confusing and


had a cheap and simple camera ready to go into production, a Nikon lens mount was grafted on to the design and the 1962 Nikkorex F was born! The Nikkorex F proved to be something of a weak link in the Nikon range and so in 1965 Nikon launched it's own superior amateur camera bodies, the Nikkormat FT and FS.

A similar arrangement happened again in 1995 when the Nikon FM10 and Nikon FE10  were introduced in 1996 using Cosina built bodies and the Nikon lens mount.
