The Nikkormat (sold as the Nikomat in Japan), released in 1971 was as popular as its bigger brother, the Nikon F, and deservedly so. Being built out of a single hefty block of aluminum made this camera nearly indestructible. Dropping this camera on tiled flooring will mostly result in you calling a tile-setter rather than having to replace your camera. Other than a very well-built camera investing in a Nikkormat will give you access to an almost unlimited amount of beautiful Nikon Glass. Making getting a new lens very easy. They are also compatible with all newer AF Nikon lenses making it a good option if you already shoot Nikon Digitally.
Due to the age of the Nikkormats their light meters tend to be burnt out. Fortunately, this is not too much of an issue as these cameras function fine without batteries. This mechanical reliability is one of the main advantages of the Nikkormat Fts. To meter a scene before taking a picture just use an external light-meter or a light-meter app on your phone (we recommend myLightmeter), or alternatively the foolproof 'Sunny-16' rule.
