Here’s a short history lesson that starts with the letter “F”. Sorry Canon, Pentax, and others…looks like Nikon made the first big splash.
This comes to us thanks to B&H’s Explora. It explains the early history of SLR cameras and then goes on to discuss various versions of the Nikon F series of cameras. It’s a good read, and if you’re a Nikon fan, it’s nostalgic. Now, if your affinity lies with other brands, you should still read it; you’ll learn how all of this got started.
