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.

Hi KaZ:

The lens aperture determines the depth of field... larger aperture (f/1.8) gives shallow DOF and smaller (16) gives deep DOF. Set to "Auto", the FG-20 will allow you to set the aperture and it will set the correct shutter speed to go with it, so you can do the depth-of-field thing easily enough.

Shutter speed control is just as easy. If you want a slow shutter speed to create some blur, just set a small (16 or 22) aperture, and the automatically-set shutter speed will be as slow as your lighting conditions will permit. For a fast shutter speed to stop action, set the lens wide open (1.8) and the shutter speed will be as fast as you can use.

In all cases, watch the indicator in the viewfinder to see what speed you're actually getting, and to make sure that you're operating within the available range of speeds on the camera.

I have recently aquired a Nikon FG-20 and I wish to use this in my course of photography. I have bought specifically for the course Black and white film, which I will develop myself. The course requires me to take pictures of Shutter speed and Depth of field i.e speeding car, blurred against a static background. Shallow or small depth of field. The thing is, the shutter speed is determined by the meter. How would I overcome this? Not sure. I also have a Tamron 80-210mm lense and Nikkor 135mm lense oh and plus the Nikkor 28mm lense already on the camera.

Hi Bill:

I don't have a D50, but I'm going to stick my neck out and say no, you can't do that. On most digital SLRs, unlike compact point&shoot cameras, the screen on the back only shows the picture AFTER it is taken, it does not serve as a second viewfinder. This is because an SLR has a mirror and shutter in front of the sensor, so until the mirror goes up and the shutter opens there is no image for the screen to show.

Some newer DSLRs do have the screen active for viewing and composing, a feature which they call "Live View" when it's provided on an SLR. To do this, the camera has an entire second image sensor just for the purpose of creating this screen image, since the real sensor is still blocked by the mirror and shutter. I believe, though, that this feature has been introduced more recently than the D50 camera.

Hi Heather:

Your EM lenses will work perfectly on the Nikkormat FT3, and Nikon EL2, FE, FE2, FM, FM2, FA, FG, FG20, and F3 cameras (there may be others that I don't recall). The FG and FG20 are the most similar to your EM, they are basically an EM with added features. On earlier models (F, F2, Nikkormat FTN, etc), the lenses will fit but the meter coupling connections are missing; on later, autofocus models, the lenses will also fit but again you may not have light meter functions depending on the model.

Hi Dick:

Very nice find! The S is actually not an SLR but a rangefinder camera, one of the first Nikon cameras.... the first 3 Nikons were the 1, the M and the S, but the 1 and M were limited production models that were not imported to the USA.

I can't give you a good value for your camera, but it will be several hundred dollars. A good way to get a realistic idea is to watch completed sales on eBay and see what the same model goes for. Nikon values vary quite a lot by model, so be sure you're looking at the same one you've got: the S is the least valuable of the regular-production Nikon rangefinders, they seem to go steadily up in price as you get to later models. Even so, any Nikon rangefinder camera is a serious collector's item.
