Excerpt: The Nikon F2 is a professional level, interchangeable lens, 35 mm film, single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. It was manufactured by the Japanese optics company Nippon Kogaku K. K. (Nikon Corporation since 1988) in Japan from September 1971 to June 1980. It used a horizontal-travel focal plane shutter with titanium shutter curtains and a speed range of 1 to 1/2000th second (up to 10 seconds using the self timer) plus Bulb and Time, and flash X-sync of 1/80th second. It had dimensions (with DE-1 head, see below) of 98 mm height, 152.5 mm width, 65 mm depth and 730 g weight. It was available in two colors: black with chrome trim and all black. The F2 is the second member of the long line of Nikon F-series professional level 35 mm SLRs that began with the Nikon F (manufactured 1959-1974) and followed each other in a sort of dynastic succession as the top-of-the-line Nikon camera. The other members were the F3 (1980-2001), F4 (1988-1996), F5 (1996-2005) and F6 (2004-present). The F-series do not share any major components, All Nikon professional F-series SLRs are full system cameras. This means that each camera body serves as only a modular hub. The Nikon F2 is an all-metal, mechanically (springs, gears, levers) controlled, manual focus SLR with manual exposure control. It was completely operable without batteries. The F2 was the replacement for Nikon F. It did introduce many new features (a faster 1/2000th second maximum shutter speed, a swing open back for easier film loading...Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
