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 recently found my dad's Nikon S 35mm SLR camera serial number 6095495 manufactured on July 28, 1951 with what I beleive is a wide angle lens 318708, Arco range finder, and an additional range finder serial no. 323582. All have original leather cases, inspection reports and guarantee paper work. Camera is in excellent condition based on appearance.

I apologize if this is an improper forum to ask this question, but I am wondering what these items might be worth? Thank you in advance for any help you might render. Please respond via email

Hi Serena:

That is not good. The broken screws may be the least of your problems, especially if you had planned to use the camera under water, because the force of the levers may have caused internal damage and leaks. If it had been a Nikonos III, there would be little or no hope for it; luckily the II is a bit stronger in the top end and it may be repairable. I can't recommend a repair service in particular, but I would look for someone who specializes in Nikonos repair... there are a few of these along the coast who handle Nikonos and other underwater gear. A regular camera repair service without Nikonos experience may not be able to spot some of the possible leak issues (the camera's design is unique in other areas as well)

I have just bought a Nikonos Calypso II and a friend of mine was trying to take it apart without taking the lese off first. Yes we have a few broken screws now which is very upsetting. How can I get this fixed.

Hi Trinity28:

The Nikonos takes standard 35mm film, you can get it anywhere.

To open the camera for loading, FIRST, REMOVE THE LENS. You do this by pulling the lens out away from the camera and twisting it 90 degrees, and it will come away. Trying to open the camera with the lens still on can cause damage.

With the lens off, hook the little levers on the neckstrap rings under the little tabs above them, and press down on the levers to lift the top of the camera up. Now the inner chassis will lift out of the shell.

When you put the lens back on, don't forget to press it back firmly against the camera body after it's in place.

Hi Brian:

No, that is not normal. The locked-up mirror and the locked-up wind lever are both part of the same problem, which I think may be electrical.

First, double check that you have put the battery in the right way up.

If that isn't the problem, then it may be, especially if the camera has been stored for years with a battery in it, that the wire to the battery compartment has corroded and broken off.

Any such total loss of power would lock up the electrically controlled shutter, which in turn would lock the wind lever and (I think) leave the mirror stuck in the up position.

My mom has a Nikon FG 35 mm that she got when my parents got married. It has been put away for a while and i busted it out of retirement today.

i do not know what the proper names are for different parts of the camera but i will do my best to describe the issues.

I put brand new batteries in it today so just fyi.

Well first off, i am not able to see anything through the eye hole. I took off the lens and saw that the mirror is flipped upward blocking the view of any vision through the eye hole. it is able to be moved down by finger but does not stay down, it appears as though something is blocking it from going all the way down. i do not know if this is normal but if it is please let me know, and if it's not, how do i fix it.

another thing is that the winder where the right hand goes with taking a picture is either locked/frozen/or broken. it will not budge, does it need film in the canister in order to actually do that or is it frozen?
