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.

Hi Tikco: All of the manual-exposure Nikkormats had mirror lockup. I'm not sure about the autoexposure Nikkormat EL series, I've never owned one of those......

I read some comments and suggestion relating to the Nikon FM's missing Mirror Lock up issue at the Nikon FM Forum: my question is - other than the F, F2, F3, F4 & F5, what the Nikon camera that offer this unique feature ? Thanks in advance.

Hi leo. I am truly delighted to see realization of this new message board. As I said, the rest of other Nikon models could be typical classic but the entire line of Nikon models are so spread out that some owners of other Nikon camera may/should also be well taken care of. I like the inclusion of the pre-posting check list listed in the input form (& the superb header image). The updated content of the Pictorial history is a long waited thing that I hope it will turn out to be, I am not disappointed with your new revised site - you may not know in the process of this update - you have also created a TRUE CLASSIC web site on your own as well ! Hats off !! Your friend, Gen. Holst.

Hi Nice folks, This is a greeting message from the group of enthusiastic Nikon owners in Thailand. was founded i 2003 focused on Thai language contents & community. Since, we’ve been just starting to develop our home (web site), we would like to introduce ourselves to other Nikonians around the world. Like other Nikonian groups globally, we always getting together, talking and taking a photo especially using the Nikon’s products. We also organize the photo trips regularly. However, we’re non-profit organization (we all have our weekdays job that’s not photography) so we don’t have any commercialized related issues but we just want to be linked with other Nikonians to learn and share the information from each other.

Your Nikon web site is the best Nikon information on the web (or even on the books) we have ever seen before. It's hard to beleive that we could find most of the Nikon's information we would like to know from your web site. Since we found out that website is very useful for Thai Nikon users, for now, we would like to ask for your permission to make the hyperlink to your web site. Please let us know if there is any restriction or regulation. If there is any thing we could do for other Nikonians, just let us know. Else, if you would like to know anything about Thailand, we’ll proudly to show you more and more (I know that you also know our country well). Personally, I've been collecting some Nikon items for 3 years but I need to learn more and more. Have a nice day!

Julio, the best lens for your purpose is a 55mm Micro Nikkor. I don't know what you mean by "fast", the Micro Nikkor comes in f/3.5 and f/2.8 versions..... anything faster than that would be inferior, and wider apertures are really inappropriate for closeup work anyway because of the lack of depth of field. For the FG you will need an AI or later lens, or an earlier lens that has been converted to AI specs. the last case will probably be the least expensive. these are excellent lenses, some of the best there is. :)=

Yeah, I know, JW, I'm a Luddite. Don't even have a cell phone or cable TV (although i DO have cable internet). I have to admit that I have used my Coolpix quite a bit since getting it a year ago for my birthday, and it does a nice job. But you sure couldn't learn anything about photography with one. :)=

Don't get me wrong.. I am still using oldies Nikon such as the F and F3. But even my son thought those are bored..they want the Coopix or fancy the DSLR more. Sad state of life..
