The Nikon L35AF is perhaps one of the most famous point and shoots. If you've been shooting film you've probably heard of it. Designed in the 1980s, Nikkon wanted to make a compact camera that was easy to use without losing a crisp clean lens. They called the camera "Pikaichi" which translates to Top Notch or No. 1, and boy were they right about that. 

The camera is compact and easy to use, has a hard plastic ring for ISO setting, a small light sensor under the lens for flash, and a small on/off shutter button. It is light and thin enough to fit in a jacket pocket and quick enough to pull it out and snap a photo without having to stop walking. 

It is a phenomenal camera for its size and a great stepping stone from a more rudimentary point-and-shoot. 

It features a leaf shutter, autofocus, and auto exposure. The body is all black plastic and a molded grip. It is framed by a simple thing red line. 

The Nikon L35AF is a leaf shutter, autofocus, auto exposure 35mm compact camera sold in the early 1980s.  It was manufactured with a full metal body, covered in black plastic with a molded grip.  A textured panel is on the other side of the camera, framed by the very classy red stripe.

The example photos are on expired film. 

Currently, photos are of Near Mint Condition.


A Grade: Camera is in 85-100% of the original condition. May have some scratches and blemishes but nothing too large, might have some dust buildup. Still overall looks extremely clean.

B Grade: The camera is fully functional but noticeably worn from the original condition. May have small but noticeable marks. With more dust buildup, viewfinders may be more worn. This condition is typical of cameras that have been used throughout the years but ones that have been treated nicely

C Grade: Major Blemishes and marks, still functional. 


Grading is a personal opinion. All cameras are tested and have working guarantee.
