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.

Good question because that used to puzzle me for quite a while. The closest thing I have learnt was "...The "EP"engraving appears within a diamond and was used to identify those items that were distributed through military "PX" systems of duty free shops.." a quote "borrowed" from a seasoned camera trader, these bodies/optics appeared on older Nikon/Nikkor such as the Nikkormat or the F/F2s. Anyway, I don't see it meant additional value to these (??). Hey Rick, read your reply regarding the entry NIkon - the last part make sense..But it takes an old timer to appreciate older NIkon bodies..I think.

I read some camera/lenses which stated "EP" edition - even they looked simialr to the orginal Nikon, what does that stands for ? any added value from "normal" edition ?

I am the proud owner of a Nikon FG camera. I engage primarily in nature photography. I would like to purchase a fast and clear lens that would enable me to shot closeups of plants and flowers. I am not looking to purchase screw-on closeup filters. Could anyone recommend the appropriate lens for my camera.

Thank you,
Julio Hernandez-Delgado

Hi Renee: I'm pretty old fashioned, but here's my spin: You can get a good Nikkormat FTn with lens for $100 - it will force you to focus and adjust the aperture and shutter speed for yourself, rather than doing it for you. It accepts a vast array of Nikon lenses, from the first ones made in the early 1960s right up into the last series of manual focus and (with the inexpensive addition of a little coupling attachment onto the aperture ring) most of the autofocus lenses. You'll learn more, faster, while investing less money in a camera that will last longer.

Finding batteries that will give accurate readings with the FTn light meter is a little quirky, but it can be done and it's cheap (the URL link above shows an easy way to do it)..... and, though the camera itself will keep running probably longer than you will, the meter may give out entirely at some point..... but by that time you'll be to the stage where you don't really even NEED the light meter. A stage that you will never get to by learning on an N60. :)=

I am going to start taking photography courses and am in the market for a good, but not expensive, camera that I can learn from. I found a N60 model for $200. Can someone tell me if this would be a good camera for me? Is this a good price?

Thanks a lot J. Very helpful. There are so many different models around it is really useful to know which ones are the best and which ones can be ignored. Thanks again.

Nikon FM3A. Safe for you as it is the current model - one fo the best manual focus Nikon now. A Professional class used Nikon F3HP is another one (needs a little patience to hunt for bargain online). IF you prefer autofocus, a used pro-grade Nikon F4 or a cheaper used Nikon F90X unit. These are the Best performance / price ratio Nikons available now.

About 300 US dollars - which can get you quite a lot on Ebay these days. Thanks.

I am looking for a good Nikon 35mm SLR film camera - used. Can someone recommend which one would be the best? I am looking for a camera that has that Nikon sturdy quality and reliability that professional's used to look for before they went digital. A sturdy camera that never breaks down or that doesn't feel like it is made of plastic. All suggestions gratefully received. Vic
