Nikon F401X 35mm film SLR
Nikon F401X 35mm film SLR
Includes AF Nikkor 35-70mm lens.
This Nikon F401X is an advanced but easy-to-use 35mm film SLR offering autofocus, auto-exposure (program, aperture-priority, or shutter-priority), Nikon's famed matrix metering, and a built-in flash with TTL exposure. The included lens is the versatile AF Nikkor 35-70mm f3.3-4.5. This lens can also be used on modern Nikon digital SLRs. The camera uses 4 ordinary AA batteries for power (not included).
Both the camera and included lens are in very good functional and aesthetic condition. All modes of the camera were tested with a battery and film installed (the film was not developed) and everything works correctly.
