The Nikon F-301 gives full manual shutter speed control up to 2000th second(!), with either Nikon F mount lenses or, in this case, with the sought-after early, solid metal construction  Helios M42 mount fast f1:2 prime with stop-down DOF ring, using a Nikon F/M42 lensed adaptor. Camera body: excellent condition, no marks or scuffs, with all systems fully working: shutter speeds, light metering, film advance and interior and battery compartment clean. Lens: Helios-44-2 prime with clean optics, click-stop aperture and stop-down ring to show depth of field, all good. Some paint wear on metalling of focus ring – see photo 5. Focus ring turns smoothly.Lens protected by 49mm sky filter. M42-Nikon F lensed adaptor is  brand new. NB Takes either AAA or AA batteries.(not included due to postal restrictions)

 

The Helios lens has a growing following for its great bokeh effects – check out on-line! I have included 2 photos taken using my Pentax DSLR, with the aperture set to 5.6 (photo 11) and wide open at f2 (photo 12) to show DOF qualities.

 

Interesting and creative camera/lens combination for a serious photographer, and for someone wanting to get into Nikon F lenses in future.
