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.

For those of you with FG battery issues...something to keep in mind that just happened to me. I've had my FG since new(1982). Been through 3 sets of batteries. Went to change them this weekend because they were dead and I wanted to take the "old-timer" out(have a D40x now) - put them in and NOTHING. I was almost heartbroken. Whipped out the multimeter - 3 volts across the batteries - BUT 0 VOLTS FROM + TERMINAL TO THE THREADS OF THE HOLDER! Turns out there was a TINY little speck of corrosion on the - terminal in the holder. Few swipes with a pencil eraser and all is well! Hope this helps.... Matt

No. For an instance, most Nikon DSLR has compromised picture format DF format (1.5X) they don't even provide ASA 50 sensitivity, film has ASA 25. BUT- MOST people don't care a damn about it as long as it looks good on their monitor. Secondly, the chance of seeing the captured image instanlty is hard to resist (adding the fact one can still "repair" the damage by another follow up) - it is all about convenience it offers.

Do you think the 35mm SLRs are dead now that people are going digital? Is there a chance the SLR will be rise up from the ashes of photography,and regain it popularity. Do you think they have the same quality(SLRs) as digitals?

Hi Wong: I think what you mean is that the LCD does not show your picture until after you have taken it. This is normal for an SLR: until the moment of the exposure, the mirror and the shutter are blocking the CCD so there is nothing to create an image on the LCD screen. When you take the picture, the mirror swings up, then the shutter opens, and THEN there is an image that can be sent to the LCD for you to view. This is different from simpler "Point & Shoot" cameras that have no mirror or shutter, just an electronic switch to record the image that the CCD is constantly viewing.

There are a few SLRs that have added this "Live View" function. Olympus was the first, I believe it is now coming out on some Nikon cameras. Personally I think this feature is of very little value, but I grew up using SLRs, not digital Point & Shoots, so that's what I'm used to. I greatly dislike holding the camera out away from my face when taking a picture. Some people, obviously, think this is a nice feature to have.

Dear Sir, A recent check on your latest DSLR Nikon cameras i.e. D40x and found that apart from capturing the pictures from the viewfinder, the LCD could not perform the same function. I am only keen to purchase on a NIKON. Looking forward to hear from you. Thanks and regards,

Hi Gust: If the problem is as your repairman indicates, your only source of parts will be another FG. It would probably be easier just to buy a working FG than to try to find a parts donor to repair your old one. It is possible that the repairman did not thoroughly inspect the camera, as there is a certain amount of disassembly required and this would be wasted if the prospects for repair do not look good (he's a business man after all, and time is money). If this is the case, your problem might be caused by a pinched wire rather than a bad circuit board, and in that case it might be fixed just by finding the pinched wire, freeing it and wrapping a bit of electrical tape on it where its insulation has been damaged. If the alternative is discarding the camera, you might look for this yourself. The hunt becomes rapidly more difficult, though, as you get deeper into the jungle: the only really easy part to remove is the bottom cover, so you might as well start there and see if you get lucky.

Hi Keith: If practical, keep the camera inside your coat when outdoors in the winter, taking it out only to shoot and tucking it back in. As long as your lens is warmer than the outside air it will not fog. This will also reduce the amount of moisture that the camera will accumulate when you bring it back inside. If you get the camera fully chilled, seal it up in a ziplock bag before taking it indoors, and leave it sealed up until it warms to room temperature.... this will prevent moisture from accumulating both on the outside and inside the camera.
