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.

jkld : "..looking for a zoom lens that will be compatible.... ".Technically, any AF-Nikkor lens is compatible (even if it is a third party label which carries a Nikon AF mount. The main issue is which are the focal length and price that suit your type of photography / budget. I would think a wide to tele-zoom is the most appropriate for all round use (since yours is still a Nikon that uses "conventional" operational sequence in aperture and shutter speed manupulation, try avoid the G-series Nikkor). Lastly, you may need an intruction manual for the F401/N4004, there are two sources, oneis via Nikon (I think they charge approx. US15-00 and there are alos commercial sources such as :
or try for used copies or photo copy (cheaper). IF you are willing to poay for the pdf copy, why not consider provice this site creator a coipy for all to share later ?

Tony: "..take any photos unless the aperature is set at f22 ". Coorect. because when you are operate in program Auto or Shutter priority ae mode, it requires you to set the lens to its minimum aperture at f/22. There is nothing wrong with the camera. When you change it to aperturte apriority or manual mode, the red alert sign will goes off.

I recently acquired an old Nikon EM, which is in pretty good condition besides the fact that the rewind knob is missing and the light meter doesn't work. I tried putting new batteries in it, and the power light came on so I know the batteries are good.

So here is the big question, does anyone know of any services I could go to so I could have the camera restored?

Hi there. Anyone know of a website that deals with Nikkor enlarging lenses, or is there a board on this site? I have an 890mm f11 APO Nikkor enlarging lens from a horzontal floor mounted rail enlarger. Would like to know more about it. thanks! ZH.

Kim, Turn on the main switch, then open the camera back and insert film (Insert from the bottom of the film cartridge). Pull film leader out to teh right until the red/orange index mark (bottom right at the center strip). Do not insert the film leader beyond the red index mark. Hold the film cartridge and ensure film is properly positioned with no slack. When the camera back is closed, the film is automatically advanced and the number of available exposures is displayed in the LCD panel or just present "frame I" at the LCD (some camera requires you to touch the shutter releaase button before it advances. When film is finishes, it will automatically begin to rewind (until you can feel there is no tension anymore, in some cases, camera will also stop rewinding). NOte: if the LCD shows error or blinking and/or no frame 1, open the back and do the same one more time.

I have just recently obtained a Nikon F401s, and I have never loaded film into a camera like this before. I have no clue how to load it, so help would be appreciated.
