A review by Casualphotophile

One more Nikomat FTN improvement was to concentrate exposure meter sensitivity.
The FT used "Whole Average Metering", but the FTN applied "Center-Weighted Metering".

Center-Weighted Metering was featured in the Nikon F Photomic TN released in the same year.
Initially, with the Nikon TTL metering system, a condenser lens in front of light sensor prevented light from viewfinder eyepiece from affecting the exposure.
For Center-Weighted Metering, an aperture plate was added and most of the meter's sensitivity concentrated on the center area. read more
