Nikonos RS, 1992-1996

You are probably looking at one of the BEST, if not last of the underwater camera ever designed for underwater photography. It was almost 7 years after the autofocus evolution which began in back in 1985. Nikon has stunned the entire photo community by introducing the world´s first TTL autofocus reflex-type underwater camera in January, 1992. It is not just another Nikonos, but can be considered as an entirely new breed of underwater camera as it embodied with almost similar performance of a top grade land-based SLR type and made handling photography underwater easily and assuring as with any of the normal Nikon SLRs. Built with cast aluminum chassis, although bulky in dimension and heavy in weight (2.6kg), but it is a robustly built, rugged camera, A built-in motor driven film transport eliminates any need of manual film advance as with the older Nikonos versions (it handles Auto film loading, auto DX or manual film speed coding, power film rewind is also provided); the AF provides various Focusing Modes which includes Single Servo, Continuous, Freeze Focus, or you can revert back to power manual focus (match needled manual focus), an AF lock is also provided; the oversized finder is a high eye point type, permits the diver to view all the essential information (In focus indication, f stop and shutter speed, exposure compensation, and flash ready indications etc.) even with their mask on for true, direct TTL reflex viewing and compositions.

The exposure control system used in the camera is almost similar to the AF-Nikon F601 with Matrix metered to handle Program AE and other exposure control modes. The Exposure compensation is also a large easy to use knob that it conveniently placed and easy to access and make fine exposure calibration. The working range of the camera has been extended from ASA 25 to 5000 with auto DX coded film or ISO 6-6400 manually. The shutter speed range has been greatly improved from Nikonos V´s so-so range of 1/30 to 1/1000 sec to a wide 1 sec. to 1/2000 sec range + a B setting for shooting long time exposure - making it the best performer among all the Nikonos. As artificial illumination is one of the essential feature required when shooting at great depth, through the lens (TTL) flash exposure control has been well taken care of in this fabulous AF-Nikonos. The flash synchronization peaks at 1/125 sec. electronic flash synch, flash exposure control offers matrix metered filled-in flash, second curtain flash sync, normal TTL flash and manual flash control with the special Nikonos RS flash unit, the SB-104 (or other applicable underwater speedlights such as SB-105 etc.). Overall, all the controls in the camera are very well thought out and are designed for easy access and operate underwater even with the gloves on (it even has a illuminated frame counter as well as remote shutter release is available via accessories).
