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.

Have you heard about a built-in TTL flash failure problem with the D40x?

I was a bit shocked and disappointed after I bought my D40x in December 2007 and in April 2008, the built-in flash failed. Curiously, it happened right after I bought an SB-800 and used them together for the first time. It pops up, it just doesn’t fire. The body is in for repair now.

Hello Ewein:

It depends on the particular lens. The problem is that, unlike the FM, on the FM2 the tab on the AI ring is plastic and is not designed so that you can flip it out of the way to mount a non-AI lens, so that the back end of the lens may hit the tab before the lens is fully seated on the camera. This will interfere with both full-aperture and stop-down metering, as the tab's position may be erratic, but more importantly it can break the AI ring on the camera body.

There are some small lenses, such as the 50/2.0, which may be usable because the lens fits inside the tab instead of pressing on top of it .... but most non-AI lenses will risk damaging the camera body if you mount them without having them modified to AI specifications first.

Although Nikon's "AI modification kits" are no longer available, it is possible to modify most non-AI lenses to AI spec so that you can use them on the FM2; I have done this with all of mine, and there are people who offer the service. One such service can be found at

Dear Mr. Rick, I am your fan here. Can I ask what will happen if a "non Ai" lens is used on a FM2 New ? I know meter doesn't work, but can I still use the stopped down aperture method in the manual to shoot manually ?
