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 makotoizm: I don't have one handy, but it sounds like you did the right stuff. I assume your battery is good and your camera works normally when you use it without the self timer?

Hello Eapen: Your FG is working perfectly. The EM-FG series cameras automatically switch to the mechanical X shutter setting when you first load the film, up until you are wound up to Frame 1. You are not wasting 3 shots, because those first frames of film were not safe to shoot on anyway, being exposed or potentially fogged during loading. What you are doing is saving time, as you do not have to wait for the camera to click off a long automatic exposure on each of those 3 frames as you wind up to frame 1 with the lens covered.

If you want to shoot on the leader of the film prior to Frame 1, you'll need to get a different model of camera.

Problem: I got a Nikon FG. Recently I noticed that when I open/close the back door to load the film, the shutter speed LED gets stuck at 125 and 90. Even if I change light conditions, the LED won't indicate the current shutter speed. But if I taken 2 or 3 shots in M90 and put it back to A or P mode, it works! Now it shows the actual shutter speed. Do you know the reason why the LED is stuck at 125 and 90 when I open/close the rear door? Now I gave it for repair and the guy said there was some dry soldering etc. He claimed to have repaired it. Now this is how it works. When I open the door to load the film, LED is still stuck at 125 and 90, but the moment I reach counter 1 of film, it automatically works. It now shows the actual shutter speed. Now my problem is I will have to waste 3 clicks on each film rool, till I reach counter 1 to get my shutter speed LED work. Is it normal? The guy who repaired said, it is normal. But I remember it used to work well from "S", even if I open/close the rear door to load film. Is there still a problem with my camera? Any help on this will be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Gene: The FG is an all-electronic, battery operated camera. After sitting idle for years as I suspect it has, a dead battery is almost guaranteed, and the camera will lock up solid. Before you do anything else, try replacing the battery - there's a good chance that the camera will pop back to life.

Hi Mary: I can't tell you a current value for your camera, but if you go to eBay, do a search for the same model and then click the "completed auctions" box, you will see the recent sales and the prices they brought. In this list, green prices are actual sales, and red prices are items that were priced too high and did not sell.

I hope someone can help me. I just received a Nikon FG from my mother's estate. I am a real novice with cameras. The advance lever is stuck and will not advance the film and I look through the viewfinder eyepiece and nothing shows. Yes I do have the lens cap off. Any help would be appreciated!!

I hope I am addressing my question to the correct area of the site. I have a Nikon N90s (F90x) which I bought in the USA in 1997. It has a n AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-80mm f3.5-5.6D lens and Nikon SB-23 speedlight. All instructions manuals included. At that time I bought a great camera which unfortunately I was too inexperienced to use and as a result it has hardly been used in the last 9 years. Are people still interested in a camera of this type? I would like to sell it but do not know if there is a market or what its value would be. I would appreciate any advice. With thanks.
