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 was looking for information about aperture in support of material on macro photography and I fell upon this part on your page:

"These numbers engraved on the lens barrel are NOT referred to aperture diaphragm, but rather just a numeric settings which help to let you determine and control how much light you would require to let into the camera by way of selecting an aperture diaphragm (lens opening inside). Technically, these numbers refer to the relative physical opening of the lens diaphragm."

These numbers are very significant to the lenses because they are calculated based on the properties of the lens they're on. f/5.6 on a wide angle lens will not have the same diameter as another, say on a long lens. There are simple lens formulas which help calculate the different properties. But the f number diameter is unique to each lens.

I found your statement to be sort of misleading.

Note: Dear Benoit, may be I should re-phase that, thanks for the input. Frankly, I have been through these and still face many questions in relation to simple numbers. So, the best is to get target readers forget about the absolute technicalities and just understand how an exposure is formed in a bare basic manner. It works. The main issue is how to lead them in to give it a try to understand the basic rather than jamming them with more numbers. Anyway, THANKS for this. But I know what I am doing because the group I intend to relay are not the seasoned group of users, but someone who has been keep on resisting to understand the relations bewtween all the elements. After the first huddle on overcoming the mental block, they will find more within and start enjoy their possession.

Hi Keith:

The only difference is whether the camera is digital or uses film.

"SLR" stands for "Single Lens Reflex"... this refers to the mirror inside the camera that reflects light from the lens up to the viewfinder. A Digital SLR is the same, the only difference is that it has a digital sensor instead of film in the back.

There are other digital cameras, called "EVF" (Electronic Viewfinder) cameras, which also show the view through the taking lens ... in these, the viewfinder is actually a small LCD display that receives its signal from the digital image sensor. But these are not the same as digital SLRs, in which the viewfinder shows a real optical image from the lens.

Hi, I recently got a 1986 Nikon F-501 AF camera, but I cant seem to turn it on, there seems to be no power in it or indications yet the batteries are new, is there some special button combination or something to get it working? maybe need to put a roll of film in it before it works? thanks in advance.

"..Wash out details..N2020":- Wash out means two scenarios 1) OVER EXPOSURE, check the camera suggested metering info first, NEXT, check if the EXPOSURE COMPENSATION has been set to +2 and above, set it back to normal (0). 2) IF you use flash in broad day light, the snow will render as wash out. Check the flash setting, reduce the fill in to minimal. 3) dont know ...

"Tele-converter for F90/N90":- Teleconverter / Extender (TC) is a cheaper alternative to buy another lens by doubling focal length of the primary lens mounted on a camera, it fits between the camera and the lens. i.e. it doubles a 100mm telephoto as 200mm for a 2X TC; 1.4 X as 140mm. Nikon made many TC units for manual focus Nikon. For some strange reasons, Nikon didn't produce any solution for photographers in a TC specifically for the AF cameras until deliveries of the AF-I Nikkor lenses (Correct me if I am wrong). However, older manual focus TCs can be used literally on all the cameras EXCEPT autofocus function is not possible which is ridicurious, I know). The newer Autofocus TC such as TC-20E II has an example as extracted from Nikon official site as (There have TC14E II, TC-17E II etc?) NOTE: you will lose AF unless the prime lens is either AF-I or AF-S.:

2X Teleconverter designed for use with AF-S and AF-I Nikkor lenses*

Autofocusing possible** when used with D1, D1X, D2X, D2XS, D1H, D100, D200, D80, D70, D70S, D2H, D2HS, D50, D40, D40X, F6, F5, F100, N80, N75 and N65 AF SLR Cameras (Older models not mentioned)

*Compatable with 200mm f/2G ED-IF AF-S VR Nikkor, 300mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Nikkor, 400mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S II Nikkor, 80-200mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S ,70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor, 200-400mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor, 300mm f/4D ED-IF AF-S Nikkor, 500mm f/4D ED-IF AF-S II Nikkor, 600mm f/4D ED-IF AF-S II Nikkor

** Autofocus not possible with 200-400mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor, 300mm f/4D ED-IF AF-S Nikkor, 500mm f/4D ED-IF AF-S II Nikkor, 600mm f/4D ED-IF AF-S II Nikkor

The more you read, the more confusing it is, if you can live without AF, try the manual focus TCs or simply get another lens.

Can you help me? I had shot some great winter photos last week with a N2020 that I dont know much about, I had the lens at 24 and film speed a P-DUAL as everyone has advised, the shots were a white out.wasted film, Everyone who knows this camera has said just leave it on P-DUAL and shoot. Camera shops etc all said the same..Does this camera need a lens filter or is there another setting for winter shots? I spend a bunch of time in the bush of Canada and I am new to this. In the summer the quality would blow your mind

Which would be the correct teleconverter for a F90x?

Hi Jim:

The original standard lens on the FG was the 50mm f/1.8 Nikon Series E, and it's an excellent lens. Recent sales on eBay show prices all over the place, anywhere from over $50 down to less than $20. Personally I'd value that lens at about $25-35, it looks like with patience you should be able to find one in that range. Other candidates are the 50/1.8 or 50/1.4 AIS Nikkors. These are larger, heavier and I would guess a bit more expensive than the Series E, and performance is not much different. Also, there are AIS, AI and Non-AI Nikkors out there: AIS is best, AI will work, but Non-AI should be avoided. An advantage of the Series E is that they are all AIS spec, so if it says "Nikon Series E" instead of "Nikkor", you don't have to worry about whether it's the correct mount for the camera.
