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 have a Nikon F801 with a broken auto-aperture mechanism.

That is, whenever the camera is called to set the aperture, it fails. Instead the photo is always taken at minimum aperture, regardless of what is shown in the viewfinder. This is with a 50mm f/1.4 and also tried with Sigma 28-200.

In use, most photos are highly underexposed except for the ones that use TTL flash, or aperture priority/manual mode.

I can put the camera in shutter speed priority mode on a setting such that the aperture would be wide open....i.e. setting a high shutter speed in a dim room, which would force a large aperture. I can visually confirm that even when the viewfinder indicates f/1.4, the aperture leaves close all the way when I take the picture. It seems that TTL flash is 'smart' enough to expose the film properly anyway. The little lever on the back of the lens mount works very smoothly and the DOF preview works fine as well.

Is this a common failure with these cameras? Is it easy to fix? Or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Renata:

Pressing the rewind button did not make your camera jam. The most likely cause is a dead battery. Try replacing the battery and see if that brings the camera back to life.

I have a Nikon FG manual camera and i pressed the film rewind button while there is no film in the camera and it made the camera mirror to go up and its not coming down, and you can not see anything thru the camera viewfinder. Please tell me how to get the film rewinder button come down so that we can see thru the viewfinder?

Are the G series of Nikkor lenses (which have no aperure ring)compatible with the F801s, which has no means of controlling aperture from the camera body, in SP or progam mode?

It says ".. NOTE:- I have placed this explanation on else where in the Nikkor site. But just to save you from clicking to other pages just to find out what the hell is this mark stands for. An "EP" marked item was just to differentiate mechanize / goods that sold during the post war Japan era. EP engraved items were distributed via military "duty-free" outlets or sometimes referred as PX distribution system during the period. Technically, you can refer them as the same with "MIOJ" (Made in Occupied Japan) products except EP extends longer period for the US troops in Japan after quoted "MIOJ" on products were expired....". I was quite muddy on this funny engraving earlier too.

Hi Rudolph:

According to the "EP" engraving was a designation for cameras that were sold in US military PX stores during the occupation of Japan.
