Nikon 35Ti

The 35Ti is a compact 35mm point and shoot camera that was introduced by Nikon in 1993.  The camera's name is derived from "35" and "Ti" because of the focal length of the lens and titanium casing of the body.  The 35Ti was built to last with its lightweight, rugged titanium construction and anti-corrosive coating.        


The camera features a quartz date function, and a 35mm f2.8 Nikkor lens.  The lens is comprised of 6 elements in 4 groups, and Nikon's integrated optical coating was applied to all elements.  The coated lens offers superior contrast, clarity and color.  The lens is controlled by an infrared auto focus system, or it can be controlled manually.  The camera also has a built-in electronic flash, and offers the option of taking cropped panoramic images.         


The window on the top of the camera has a watch-like appearance, and features four analog displays.  The display has value indicators for exposure number, aperture, distance and under/over exposure compensation.  The camera also has a focusing distance of 0.4m to infinity, and 3D matrix metering with a 6 segment matrix sensor.  The exceptional optical quality, practical focal length and classic design allow the Nikon 35Ti to enjoy a collectible status today.

Kowa SET R2

The SET R2 is a 35mm SLR camera that was produced by the Japanese manufacturer Kowa. Founded in 1894, Kowa originally began as a textile manufacturer.  By 1945, they diversified their business and began to produce optics for binoculars, spotting scopes and projection lenses.  Kowa then began to manufacture cameras from 1954 to 1978.  Kowa produced their first camera in 1954, which was the Kalloflex 6x6 TLR.  They then went on to make a series of 35mm cameras with leaf shutters.  By 1960, they created a series of amateur 35mm SLR cameras with leaf shutters.


The Kowa SET R2 was released in 1970, and it was the last of the Kowa SLRs in production to use a leaf shutter.  The camera features a "behind the lens" leaf shutter arrangement and interchangeable lenses.  The SET R2 above comes with a standard Kowa 50mm f2.8 lens.  The camera also has combined TTL full aperture metering, and a complicated shutter design.  The SET R2 instruction manual has a message to users that says we hope "this camera will become a companion of yours and afford you great enjoyment for years to come." The SET R2 can definitely bring enjoyment to the vintage camera lover or collector!
