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 bought a Nikonos in Korea in 1967 for $65.00; nothing today, but I only cleared $65.00 every two weeks back then. I would still use it, but I just replaced it with a GoPro 3+ Black since film is essentially dead. It is a great little camera, setting focus by distance estimation not too bad, but setting up my darkroom again isn't acceptable. All those tanks, reels, enlargers, and lenses occupy boxes in my basement. I hate not using the Nikonos and flash arm, but those days are gone. Same for my Nikon F2AS, Nikkormat, drives, and lenses. The Nikonos never displayed the Calypso name....I never heard of that connection before this article. The real Calypso was nicer in some ways: it had a 1/1000 shutter speed with an f/2.8 lens. That shutter speed wasn't needed underwater, but as an amphibious camera (neither is an "underwater" camera as both can be used on the surface ... And I would lay odds they were used on the surface more than underwater. Small, light, indestructible, and battery free made them a delight for adverse weather shooting. No worries about rain, snow, ice, being bumped/dropped, and you can just lick the lens to remove water if there is nothing dry at hand. It was the only camera I would take kayaking, swimming, diving, rappelling/climbing, or dangling around my neck while riding motorcycles. It also was a good way to open conversations with strange girls ... Just drop it in the pool, drag it out, and keep shooting after the normal reactions of shock seeing a camera dropped underwater. The lack of overboard technology seen today forced a photographer to actually "make" a photo rather than letting a DSLR do the work.

I have a Nikon F4 film camera. I recently read some comments by a gent who was the official Presidential photographer during the GW Bush administration. He said that he felt there was an over reliance on the wide range zoom lenses, and that they give an artificial effect - so he's gone back to using a 40-70 mm lens for close up "candid" shots.

As far as I know, there's no such lens made specifically for a Nikon F4 - is that correct? Is there any lens I could get that would be equivalent to 40-70 that could be used or adapted for use with the F4?

Thank you,

Hi Ben:

If you have a Nikon M, it definitely has value, even if it's not in pristine condition. A nice one sold for $1275 last month on eBay, and a pretty sorry looking one sold for over $500.

Hi Brian:

Just in front of the shutter release button is a small lever, with positions marked "A" and "R". Make sure this is set to "A" to engage the wind knob with the film transport system (it will have been set to "R" to rewind the film the last time the camera was used).

If this doesn't fix it, drop me an email.

I found what appears to be a Nikon M camera (1950) in a collection of cameras in my Dad's attic. It is not in good condition but I am wondering if it has any value.
Where can I look for that or is there someone that can help me?

I have an old Nikon S Model rangefinder and I think it hasn't been used in over 30 years. So I bought some film and tried to follow the directions in the original manual to load the camera.

Everything was (or seemed) fine until I started windingbthe film (as directed) and it seems it will not stop or wind the shutter. So what did I do wrong or is the shutter spring posssibly broken?

I have my 1st camera a Nikon EM I have just put a new 3Volt battery in and loaded it 400 Speed film.
1. The shutter speed needle is at the top spot-fixed; and,
2. The Test Light button doesn't illuminate; and,
3. There is NO audible sound.
I have tested the new battery with my Simpson Volt/Ohm meter and it is fully charged at 3.1volts.
Am I missing something operationally or settings wise?
Thanks for any help/suggestions.
