Nikon F-401x

The F-401x, although retaining the external appearance of the F-401 and F-401s, has many internal changes.

The major change with respect to the other 401's is the autofocus which becomes predictive. It remains unable to anticipate the outcome of the next election, but it predicts where the moving subject will be during shutter operation.
Matrix metering now features five zones instead of three.
Exposure program is entirely new.

The F-401x features several modes: Program, auto with speed priority, auto with aperture priority, semi-automatic, manual. Autofocus can be disabled. The built-in flash is automatic, coupled with the matrix metering.

The F-401x was the entry level Nikon of the time.
