Would you read this magazine ifit didn'thave any photographs? It's hard to imagine this magazine with out photographs. Great photography is so much a part of it. Indeed, of our world today. And fine photographers are counted among the major artists of this century. But what about you? As a reader of this magazine, you're probably inter ested in photography. Could you be come a great photographer? Perhaps. You could at the very least make photographs with enduring personal value. We offer a beginning. The beginning of your involvement. The Nikkormat FTN. A 35mm single lens reflex cam era that performs admirably and simply as a recorder of your children and your travels. But which slowly, surely, inevitably gets you interested, hooked, involved in photography. As you grow in photography, the Nikkormat grows with you. You select from the Nikon System, the most com plete in 35mm photography. Your choice includes more than 40 Nikkor lenses. And if your involvement be comes total you can even add a Nikon camera. Whatever the extent of your involve ment, the Nikkormat offers you some important basic advantages. Such as viewing and metering with the lens wide open - so your bright view of the subject never dims. "Center-weighted" metering, proved most accurate in the most situations. An instant-return mirror and an auto-reopen dia phragm - so the finder never blacks out. And a rugged bayonet lens mount that lets you change lenses with a twist of the wrist. Plus human engineering that makes the camera comfortable, natural and fast to use. Could you become a great photographer? There are two ways to find out: See your Nikon dealer, or write for details. And ask, too, about The Nikon School of Photography. Nikon Inc., Garden City, N.Y. 11530. Subsid. of Ehrenreich Photo-Optical In dustries, Inc. Dept. NG. [Ei (Canada: Anglophoto Ltd., P.Q.)
