The last of the “real “ FT series Nikkormats. The FT3 was the first Nikon Camera body to incorporate Automatic Indexing for their new series of AI lenses. A popular camera for both amateurs and professionals, it was considered to have the best metering system of any camera of the era but sadly the FT3 had the shortest production run of any Nikon camera of just a few months in 1977 and was almost immediately replaced later the same year by the Nikon FM with it’s more compact body design.
