A system consisting of autofocus 35mm SLR cameras made by Kyocera, with fully electronic mount, electronically controlled shutter and TTL exposure meter, which supports program, aperture-priority and shutter-priority automatic exposure metering, as well as fully manual mode. The N1 (2001) and NX (2002) are film cameras, and the N Digital (2002) is the world's first 35mm full-frame digital SLR camera.

A small but practical lens lineup consisted of autofocus models designed by Carl Zeiss and manufactured in Japan.
