The Nikon F camera, introduced in 1959, was Nikon's first SLR camera. It was one of the most advanced cameras of its day, and it influenced the design of all later professional SLRs.
The Nikon F became enormously successful and was the camera design that demonstrated the superiority of the SLR and of the Japanese camera manufacturers. This camera was the first SLR system that was adopted and used seriously by the general population of professional photographers, especially by those photographers covering the Vietnam War.
The Nikon F also had a reputation for being extremely resilient to damage or mechanical failure.
It became known as "the hockey puck".
A specially modified Nikon FTn was also taken on the Apollo 15 mission to the Moon.
