When the US was hosting the L.A. Olympics in 1984, Nikon also “revived” the production of a very limited number of around 500 units of a special version of the Nikon F2HS for the journalists covering the gallantly staged sports event. It was known as the Nikon F2H-MD. The resultant F2H-MD had a pellicle mirror design used on the earlier Nikon F HS. The pellicle mirror does not flip up like a normal reflex mirror does when an exposure is made. Although its intention was to be used for scientific research, sports, and specialized applications, it may also change a photographer’s normal shooting behavior because, the pellicle mirror permits viewing through the lens while a picture is being taken. In the case when flash is used, there will be no time lapse and black out during exposure due to mirror flip up and blind the eyepiece momentarily, you can even see the flash light striking on the object during an exposure process. Next, the fixed mirror also eliminated any possible movement cause by mirror bounce.
