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.

John has asked a very BASIC but inspiring question relating to common features found in any typical mid-to-highend SLRs. Basically, he may be right in some ways with his remarks on practical usability of top shutter speed in 1/4000sec or 1/8000 sec. but these speeds are not entirely impossible to activate when operating a shooting session in tropical daylight and/or places like beach front on a hot summer day. However, one of the most commonly used scenario to reach a camera's top shutetr range is when you are using a high speed film type in your camera for action photography (like shooting a high speed motor race etc.). As for the digital cameras, it is also possible to adjust/overide the ISO setting to higher values for such purpsoe. The limited matching high speed aperture lenses available in the market was probably one of the reason why modern SLRs do not put very much emphasis on the development for top shutter speeds to go beyond 1/8000 sec (except in the case where Minolta's Maxxum 9 has broke that technlogical barrier with its 1/12000 shutter speed. But many camera manufacturers would still stick to 1/8000 sec. primarily because availability of mass market high speed optic are limited (+ pricey.). Hope this info help.

Hi you sound cool and have answers. I know new cameras have up to 1/8000 shutter speed. Is this possible to use considering the widest apertures would be 1.2 and average at 2.8? I mean how big an aperture would be required for a shutter speed like 1/4000 or 1/8000? Seems like there would never be enough light at those speeds. Would appreciate enlightenment John S.

Hey, looks like this "old but classic" Nikon web section has gone through a good round of revamping & updating. Have been using your site for reference for the last 5-6 years. I am glad to see (finally) some attention being put onto updating on various information that relates. Great reads with the all the new write-ups & inclusions of newer models. I like the idea of using the series of events (including the lenses, compacts and the digital portables as supplementay info. Good job.

There are a couple of Nikon SLRs that I truly like. The F801(s) and the F90X/N90s are among them. These models are important Nikon cameras just like how the Nikkormats or the FM/FE series that have served the Nikon F2 & F3. In this case they served as alternative for the Nikon F4 (similarly, the Nikon F100 is for Nikon F5 except in between, digital SLRs serfaced). However, that period between the F4 & F5 was the lowtide of my journal. One of the things in life & avoid is keep trying to create something that you are not sentimentally attached to (nothing to do with the hardware, it is absolute personal). Actually, anther reason for the omission in a full-featured website is being, I did checked a couple of F801/F90 series websites on the internet and I am pretty happy about with the quality of content (except for the F801 where I recreated a one-page summary). It is quite meaningless in trying to duplicate similar resources on the network since it is a common objective that we are working towards for. A "serious" website (my personal intepretation) may take me 2-3 months to create one and I have many other models that I like that I have not even begin with, so, just try to consume or use the suggestive link(s) (I have provided a few good weblinks at some of the cameras mentioned in this site which I thought they should provide adequate info for any surfers to use - if operational information is required). But these two series of Nikon F801 and/or F90 series are worthy good Nikon SLRs for considerations even if they are considered aged in certain techological segments but you do understand photography is not entirely confined to advancements in AF, exposure or metering as they are only features that help to automate & simplify each process for the photographer. Thank You.

Great site! How come no info on the N90 and its variants? I really could use it. I owned two 8008's so I know the basics but I'm sure I'm not using the camera to its full potential Barry
