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!! I have a problem with my Nikon Em! help me!!. Sometimes the meter don't work when I select the Auto Mode. It's a mistery, sometimes it's working and, when I charge a new roll, then not work. The batteries are ok. So I take out the batteries, and a few minutes later, I put the batteries again, and now work. What can I do?.
thanks a lot, and sorry for my english!!

Hello Desiree:

I'm afraid that the best place (possibly the only place) to find this replacement part will be on another Nikon EM. Perhaps you might find a non-working one on eBay for a cheap price. After you get the part you need, you can re-sell the rest and you might get all of your money back.

Hello Juliet:

Yes, it could be batteries: The EM is completely electronic, nothing works without batteries.

Also, note that even with batteries the shutter speed indicator in the viewfinder will not work until the frame counter reaches number 1 at the beginning of each roll of film.

Hi I am very very new at this and I must get some photos done before next class. The shutter speed lever in view finder not working. I am using a old camera inherited from grandfather, Nikon EM. Could it be the batteries?

Hi Pam:

This is VERY IMPORTANT: You must REMOVE THE LENS from the camera before using those little levers to lift the top. The Nikonos II is a very rugged camera and not likely to be damaged unless you really push, but very many Nikonos III's are no longer usable under water because someone tried to open the camera without removing the lens first.

There is no lens release latch on the Nikonos. To remove the lens, you pull it out slightly away from the camera and rotate it counterclockwise until it releases. It bayonets back on like other lenses, except that once it's fully on you press it back against the camera body to lock it in position.

With the lens off, you use the levers at the ends to pry the top cover up, and then the shell slides off downward.

I have a nikonos 2, found in the attic after many years, cant remember how to open it!
I know the strap fixtures help but is there a release mechanism too.
Great site, really informative.

Thanks Rick! I cleaned the compartment and didn't get any different result. :( I was able to find a repair store that isn't too far away through the site you listed. I'll run it up there sometime and have them take a look!
Hopefully it won't be too major.

Thanks again for your time and this very helpful site!!

Hi Bob:

$10,000 is a lot of money. I don't have a serial number list handy, but that number is lower than the one on my Nikon S which dated from around 1952. If your camera is an S, it's probably worth a few hundred dollars; but if it's an M or a Nikon I (the only models earlier than the S), it will be worth a lot more. These 3 models all look very much alike, you have to know the line pretty well to tell them apart.
