Japan: NIKOMAT/NIKKORMAT: 1965-1978:

In reality a part of Nikon, but presented as a brand of its own.
Nikkormat (or Nikomat in Japan) were brand names under Nikon meant to compete with Pentax, Minolta, Miranda and others in the consumer market. They had quite some success through the 60s and most of the 70s, until Nikon decided to make lower priced cameras under their own name.


Nikomat in japan, Nikkormat in (most of) the rest of the world. It used the same Nikkor lenses as Nikon. Quality was good, but not quite matching Nikon.
Traditional lay out, except..
the shutter time ring, placed around the mount.

Thank you! You are right, and I have corrected the chapter of Rolleiflex.
However, the first Voigtländer VSL-1, under Rollei control, had M42 mount.

Hi. The Rolleiflex 35 models did not use M42 but the QBM mount, which is identical to the Voigtländer bayonet.

You are right, and I have described it as such in the chapter about Voigtländer.
(1959-1969). But it came out wrong here, and will be corrected. Thanks!

The Bessamatic had interchangeable lenses (think Zoomar, the first 35mm camera zoomlens). Nice site, keep it up
