It’s easy to forget that Nikon still actually has a 35mm film SLR in its current lineup. That camera is the Nikon F6. Released in 2004, it was Nikon’s final flagship in their 35mm SLR lineup, so it’s no surprise that they haven’t quite been able to let it go just yet, despite the fact that their DSLRs are starting to be made obsolete by their new mirrorless releases.
Well, now, Nikon Japan has announced that they’re recalling some of their F6 bodies over excessive levels of dibutyl phthalate (DBP) contained within certain parts of the camera. These levels put it outside of the values set by the European Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive. Don’t worry, though, it only affects 152 F6 units.
