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 want to purchase a Nikon F-301 in like new condition(N-2000 in the U.S).
I opened the camera back and checked the camera shutter curtains.. They look perfectly intact
But when I set the shutter press the shutter releas button to check if they open properly they didn't open, the just vibrates. ( at shutter speed 1 as well as 2000 )

my questions are ... Is this normal in this camera? do they note open because the camera back is open ? is the camera funtional?

Thank you for this great site

I own a NIKON F601. It appears the discription of the camera's battery has changed and no one knows what I am asking for. Can you please give me detail of what I should be asking for?

Thank you.

Hi Stephen:

My DSLR is a Canon, I'm not sure if the syntax is the same with Nikon:

On my camera, between 1/4 and 1 second, there are numbers like 0"3, 0"4, 0"5, etc: these are decimals of seconds, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5 seconds (not sure why they couldn't just put a decimal point in the display). Beyond 1 second, there is 1"3 and 1"6 before reaching 2". In all cases, the " symbol indicates full seconds and the number after the " is a decimal.

So, if you see [ 5 ] on the display, that's 1/5 second, but if you see [ 5" ], that's 5 seconds.

Could anyone show me a chart of how shutter speeds relate to the numbers you see on digital camera's. 1/1000 is easy as 1000 and I have discovered that whole seconds have " after them but as part seconds what does 1.3 represent, 2 is perhaps a half but what does 2.5 mean? Help!

I have had a Nikon FG since I bought it new. Just recently I got it out to use and the film advance lever won't advance and the mirror is in the 'up' position. I have installed new batteries yet it does not work. Any solutions??

Hi Frederick:

I have a Nikonos III, I'll be happy to trade war stories. The rewind knob pulls up for rewinding, and goes back flush for using the camera. It's a bit fussy going back down, you have to rotate it counter-clockwise as you press down on it... when it gets to its happy place it will drop down.

A hint from experience: the rewind knob is engaged only when it's pulled up, it goes in and out of mesh with some gears in this process. If the gears skip while you're trying to rewind the film and it does not rewind smoothly, this means that your camera's chassis is bent. If this is the case, the camera is not water tight. This is a fairly common problem, caused by a previous user trying to open the camera while the lens is still on it.

A friend just gave me one of his Nikonos III cameras. It's in like new condition and I'm really jazzed. My question is: Is the rewind knob supposed to sit flush on the body or does it have about a 1 cm gap? IF it is supposed to be flush, how do I accomplish this? I've read some of the website on Nikonos problems and made sure the pilot is screwed all the way in. But that's the extent of my knowledge so far

thanks in advance for you help
