The Nikon 35 Ti

 

The compact camera Nikon 35 Ti has a special place in my own camera collection. This fair camera is a unique luxury 135 compact camera manufactured by Nikon.
In 1983, Nikon has launched its first compact camera which was designed by Giugiaro and called Nikon L35 AF. This camera has already a 35 mm Nikkor open to 2,8.
Ten years after, The Nikon 35 Ti was launched. With its titanium body, its analogical display (as a Swiss watch) and with fabulous lens I have a real pleasure to take picture.
Its price in 1993, when it came on the market was near of 1100 $, today, we may find it for 670 $.

"This elegant class of camera combines advanced features and Nikon SLR image quality with a compact, lightweight, titanium body. The 35Ti features a superb Nikkor 35mm f/2.8 lens. This camera boasts 6-segment 3D Matrix Metering, advanced flash systems, programmed auto-exposure, built-in data imprint, plus standard and panorama formats. A combination of quality, performance and features without equal.
The Ti series' comprehensive optical system represents a major advance in camera design. The 35mm provides a traditional view that's ideal for pictures of people. The lens automatically retracts into the camera body for protection while traveling."

The analogical display panel is very useful and pleasant to use. With a quick looking, you have all information about speed and aperture, distance, number of pictures .. given by several needles. This display panel will never be used on another luxury camera and gives to this model an old fashion aspect.
Two years after the Nikon 35 Ti, the Nikon 28 Ti was designed, with the same characteristics and body but with a Nikkor lens of 28mm.
