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.

Robert: Nikonos 1 was officially using a NIkon name after the Company bought the design entirely from the joint venture effort with La Piro technique, France. See if a name "Calypso" is printed on the camera body - as it may have additional collectible value. Next, if the old Nikon's name of Nippon Kokagu" was there, better still - try selling it via Ebay Japan - it should fetch more premium (I think - since the Japanaese made so much from us), haha.. Good Luck. Whatever it is, everything has a value, all depends on how desperate the buyer(s) is/are.

carlyluvsbilly: a N50 in 1980 ? No way. The closest is the F501 (other markets outside US) which is called N2020 but it was sometimes in 1985/86. The N50 was produced in mid '90.

I have a Nikonus I in excellent shape and in working conditions. I just wonder if it has any value. I really have no use for it and would trade for a later model Nikonus. Is that a realistic proposition? Robert Sierra email: alternate:

Hi I just won a nikon f50 on ebay with a sigma 70 to 300 mm zoom lense and macro apo. What I would like to know is the year of this camera as thye claimed it was 1980's but I cant find that model for that year I did see that f50 came out in 1994. Also, as I am embarking on photography can anyone tell me if £106 pounds is too much money for this item? Thanks.

Hey, can anyone help me here? I have a nikon F-401s, three sigma lenses, a 35-70mm zoom, 75-300mm zoom and a macro lense. These are all in perfect condition, but i have to let them go. Does anyone have an idea how much this kit might be worth? The money will be going to a digital SLR, so want to get best i can for it! thanks

Hi Jeremy: It's a safe bet that a little mirror falling out of your camera body is not a good thing. This was most likely part of the optical path in the AF system, and without it you have no AF. I wouldn't sweat things like cleaning mirrors or other parts of the camera until I was sure that all of the parts are actually IN the camera.

Hi, I have a question about my N50 Camera. My camera will not auto focus at all. I know it has nothing to do with the lens, because it used to work fine. I don't know too much about all the parts of an SLR Camera. There was this little rectangle mirror that fell out of the camera which I don't have a clue what is. It is around the size of a pencil eraser or smaller. I was wondering if maybe it had something to do with the camera auto focusing or not. I have also heard that maybe the filter or mirror might need to be cleaned. Is that something that I could do myself? Hopefully someone can help me. Thanks,

Next, don't like the complication Nikon designed for the F5 on MLP, always has to remember the custom setting. I would rather see it using the mechanical means like the old days, easy and straight forward. But it turns out to be electronically control (I think it behaves this way..) The same goes for the new Nikon F6.

Yeah.. The Nikomat EL series (EL, EL-W and EL2) can perform MLP as well. It is almost the same with the F series. If you don't know how to perform this task, read here:
Good board !
