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 Christine (sorry, I'm going through the messages backwards):

That doesn't sound good. Check that the terminals are clean in the battery compartment, sometimes they get corroded and prevent a connection. If that doesn't work, the best news could be a broken wire from the battery box, but even that can be fairly costly to fix because the wire runs up through the middle of the body and isn't as easy to replace as one might hope.

There is a list of repair services at where you might find someone close to you that you could have take a look at it.

Hi Danny:

The most common cause of this kind of problem is also the easiest to fix: If you remove the lens and look inside the camera, you will see a little strip of black foam rubber running across just in front of the focusing screen inside the lens mount. This rubber gets sticky with age, and the mirror sticks to it. You can dig the sticky old goop out with a little screwdriver blade (be careful not to hit the mirror or screen with it) and replace it or even just leave it out.

If this is sticky, chances are that the light seals in the back door, which are made of similar foam, are also in bad condition and should be replaced to avoid light leaks. You can buy an excellent foam replacement kit from Jon Goodman, who sells them on eBay under the name "interslice". It only costs about $10 and includes good instructions, so it's not worth the trouble to try to come up with some sort of DIY work-around using materials from the hardware store.

(love this site)

anyways, i bought my nikon EM from ebay a couple months back with the reassurance that the camera was in good condition and working order. the camera works fantastically and generates great quality pictures for a 1979 slr. however, there is one problem. i am not a professional my camera terminology isnt so great, but at times after i wind the film for the next shot and hit the shutter button, i hear the first click as the mirrors go up, but i dont hear the 2nd click as the mirrors are suppose to come down. the only way for the 2nd click to sound is to bang the camera a little, take out the lens(its weird), or wait. i do not know what is wrong with the camera... what is the problem? where can i get this fixed? p.s. i love the EM ^^ and wanna keep it for the years to come
thank you

Hi there, I just recently acquired a Nikon FG. I replaced the batteries but am still not getting any response from the camera.

I don't have the manual (except the PDF from here, thanks!) and the original owner has passed so I can't get info from them! It did have a roll of film in it and a slip of paper with date of 6/17/04 on it which I assume is when the film was inserted.

I would really like to play with this camera and hope someone here can help me out!

Oh.. I guess I have found the problem (why you can locate the model from the pictorial site). There is a wrong link of the Nikon FM to a different page. Patched. You can find other Nikon FM series variations at:
