F2H 250
Many people know the existence of the High Speed F2 (F2H), and that only 500 were made. The F2H did not sell very well because the camera was bulky and users had to change film cassettes for every burst of 36 frames at 10fps. The latter is totally unsuitable for sports photography, as much longer burst of frames are needed and that shooting times are critical. Hence Nikon adapted ten F2Hs, MD-100s, MB-100s and MF-1s so that 1 burst of 250 frames or 7 bursts of 36 frames at 10fps are possible. However, there was no demand for it and Nikon abandoned further productions. Presently only one complete F2H 250 has been found by a Nikon collector. Other F2H 250s, probably incomplete, are still to be found. Happy hunting. (Nikon did not make an F2H 750 probably because the F2H 250 failed to impress the trial market.)
