Modern Classic SLRs Series :
Various Nikon camera models - Message Board/Gu

Since with the inception of Nippon Kogaku until the current Nikon Corporation - they were probably hundreds of camera models as well as million of Nikkor optics being sold thus far. It is very hard to satisfy everyone intention when each surfer coming to this Pictorial History Website (first created since 1997). Over the last few years, I have constructed quite a number of sites featuring a selective Nikon camera models (Nikon F(based on Mike Liu's previous effort, the Nikon F2 series, F3 Series, Nikon F4, NIkon F5, the digital SLR series as well as the midrange models such as Nikon FM series, FA, FE series, Nikkormat/Nikomat and the compact EM/FG/FG20 etc..). Each of these featured model has their respective Message Board to support specific owner of each camera types. However, there are a number of very good Nikon SLRs (as well as the film and/or Digital compacts wer quite exciting too. But due to various reasons, I cannot featured them one by one. This Message Board was created just for that purpose - to provide a gateway for those that were not being featured. You may use it for whatever you think suitable - questions & answers (Q&A) or just make good use of it to share experience among one another. The use of this section of the photography SITE is not confined soly for this purpose, you may also make use of it for other photographic matters. Some of the remarks presented within the pictorial history site was entirely personal and I do not wish to influence any decision prior to any potential purchases or disposal of your equipment. You may make use of this convenience here to present your own views as well. Enjoy.

Dear Kenneth, I have set my Nikon FG on M90 and it does engage but when it is set on anything else it doesn't. Do you have any idea what could be the problem? I thought it might be the batteries so I changed them to what Walmart recommended as a alternate to the one listed on the FG website. However, the problem remains.......... with appreciation, Anita Shohrati

This site has been very helpful in identifying an old nikon I aquired years ago. From your pages it appears to be an S-3. Does anyone know of a reputable dealer that would pay a fair price for it? It shows light wear but is in good working order. Thanks to all you camera buffs that reply.

The focusing screens between Nikon F5, FA and F90 are not interchangeable. Neither the F5 and F4 screens are the same. Read:
The Nikon FA screens can be used among the Nikon FM2 series and Nikon FE series (minus the FE10) (For FE2, it requires compensation): Read:
I don't own a F90(X), cannot provide more info on this.

Will the same focus screens work on the F5, FA and F90s? Is there a focus screen available which is divided into the Rule of Thirds to assist with composition? Where can I find them? Thank you. Cordially, Lynn Pizzo

ooohs.. for the three flash units I mentioned, go to this page:
and the links for each of these units are laid the mid/bottom secton of the page. The SB-16A or SB-16B operates in the same manner, The difference is the flash foot. You should use the SB-16B wit the standard ISO hotshoe where yopur F301 uses (SB-16A is Nikon F3 specific). Lastly, this is truly a GREAT Nikon site !!!!

Go to this page,
there are a list of Nikon AF speedlights. Except for the SB-XXDX series, you can use any of them with your F301. Next, since the F301 is NOT an AF camera, you can use SB-15, SB-16B, SB-18 etc. the three mentioned are the best compatible units (varying power output and price). Personally, I think the SB-15 is the best among the three for your F301. SB-18 is kind of weak and th SB-16B is too bulky but it is the most powerful among all (plus a secondary flash for fill-in).

Hi, I have just inherited 2No F301's. I want to obtain a flash and have been reading about a SB18 speedlight. I am struggling to understand their compatability and I do not want to buy any adapters etc. Can anyone please help and tell me if this flash will fit straight onto my cameras, or if any other of the speedlight range, or any other makes will fit. Many thanks Neal

Willie makes a good point about infrared. Also, any camera that does not have a mechanical sprocket for the frame counter is likely to be a problem, as these use an infrared LED to count the sprocket holes and the LED can fog the film. I'm not sure which Nikons this would apply to, I know Canon is doing this.

The ideal camera for infrared is probably an older rangefinder - this will allow you to use an opaque infrared filter on the lens and still focus.

steve anthony : "..Infrared film.... ". Technically, any AF-SLR that has a film confirmation window at the film back is not that "secure" for Infrared film use. Even with older SLRs, I would think it is better off check the film back rails to see if that is light tight. Well, it is actually pretty easy to see if I am wrong, just waste a roll and see. Next, processing is another area that you need to attend.
