Nice working film camera..
One of the Nikkormat's strongest assets is its looks. This is a very nice looking machine. With its all-metal construction and fully mechanical controls, it oozes retro charm in the age of plastic-fantastic DSLRs.
he Nikkormat FT can be used without batteries, but batteries are required for its light-metering system to work. This system is a "center-the-needle" affair, using a CdS meter to read a full-frame average through the lens. The needle rises and falls to indicate exposure results against the camera's current aperture and shutter speed setting. Interestingly the exposure needle is duplicated in a window on the top of the camera, allowing the photographer to take a reading without looking through the viewfinder. An additional quirk that some will find annoying is that the meter is only activated when the film advance lever has been pulled out to its "stand-by" position. This adds an additional step between getting a shot, though a possible benefit is longer battery life.
