“The Attraction of the Nikon F System Camera”, a Commemorative Exhibition for the 40th Anniversary of the Nikon F3

Dates: August 4, 2020 (Tue) – Late December, 2020

Nikon Museum is holding a special exhibition entitled “The Attraction of the Nikon F System Camera” from August 4 to late December, 2020 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Nikon F3 SLR camera.

The Nikon F3 was released in 1980, as Nikon's top-of-the-line SLR camera, and produced for over 20 years until 2001. It was popular with large numbers of photographers, from amateurs to professionals, due to its combination of high digitization, reliability, and other features. It was used in wide range of photographic fields, including the aerospace and academic fields, and has been called one of the benchmark film SLR cameras.

In this exhibition, approximately 20 F3 cameras are exhibited in combination with more than 60 types of accessories including viewfinders, Speedlight flash units, motor drives, bellows attachments and remote controllers. It is intended to introduce the versatility and system capability of the F3, which gave it such enormous appeal.
