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.

Wow, I wish it was me who just "picked up" that one! May I ask from where? About how rare: Read more about it under Asahi Pentax 1957-64.

I picked up a 'Penta Asahiflex H2' serial#230415, seems in pretty good condition with a couple of lenses and accessories. Apparently these are rare?

Hi,
Honeywell was the US distributor and had their name on the cameras until Pentax established its own US-office. H3v was identical to Asahi Pentax SV. Thanks!

Hello,
Great site! I don't see my Honeywell Pentax listed here. It was my first SLR that I bought it used in the late 1960's. Model H3v, any info?
