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.

The official producer was Chinon, according to Alpa sources. But we know that Cosina produced some cameras (and lenses) for Chinon.

The ALPA 2000 was a Cosina with M42 mount. I used to own one. Ever wonder why there are ALPA badged M42 lenses on eBay? They are from Cosina too.

Sadly not found the Ricoh XR-7 / Sigma SA-1 / Sears KS-2 camera(s) on the site. They could be produced by Cosina as well, but I have no information about this.
