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.

I just received my Nikon 35ti from Adorama. In E+ condition, advertised as working.

I attempted to put in a new battery. Once i figured out how to place it in, it would not turn on.

It's a new battery, and i followed the instructions in the manual perfectly.

HOWEVER, when i first opened the battery lid i do wonder if i accidentally bent the metal or plastic out of place. I cannot tell what it is supposed to look like.

Does any one know how the sliding part of the battery lid connects with the battery? I could try to connect a wire to close the circuit.

Any thoughts?

Or can some one take a good hi-rez shot, something that i can zoom into and check.

Hi Sarah:

To open the back of the camera, pull up on the rewind knob at the upper left corner of the camera. If the back does not pop open, do not force the knob; while holding it up gently but frimly, try prying the back open gently with your fingertips; the light seals can become sticky with age. As above, don't apply excessive force if it doesn't want to open.

There is a free instrucion manual here:

Hello Connor:

If the lens has the metal fork attached at the f/5.6 position on the aperture ring, then it will work correctly on the Nikon F Photomic camera. The main difference between the earlier and later models is that the pin-in-fork system was used to connect the lens to the light meter in the earlier models up until 1977; after that the coupling was done by a notch in the back edge of the aperture ring, engaging a ring around the lens mount on the camera body.

I was wondering if anyone could answer a quick question.....
Do the newer lenses used with the Nikon FG body work with the later original Nikon Photomic F body? I'm not really fimilar with older Nikon film bodies so I need a little advice. But I believe the FG uses photometering equipiment and other electronics unlike the F series.

I bought at auction a used Nikon EM SRL from a member of our photography club but there was no instruction manual. I
have been searching on the internet to find an instruction manual and found this site,
Is there anyway I can buy or print your manual from your site?
Thank you. Loraine

Hi Val:

The lenses will fit. I don't think the light meter will work, so you may have to set the camera on M and guess exposures. Focus will be manual of course, and will probably not be quite as easy and precise as it was in the FG20.
