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 Thea: Here's a link to a free instruction manual download:

I don't have an FG, but it appears that there is no On/Off switch - the meter comes on when you depress the shutter release button halfway. To prevent it from accidentally coming on in storage you could set the shutter to the M90 position, which cuts off all of the power functions... but the hazard in that is that you may forget to set it back to a normal setting next time you go to use it, and get bad exposures.

I own the Nikon FG, and haven't used it for 10 years. just pulled it out, and want to get started with it again. Any ideas on where to get an instruction manual? silly question- is there an on/off switch? Don't want to burn out the batteries. BTW- I LOVE this camera, it's been all over the USA.

Very impressive site !!! I'll bookmark this one for sure. I've been a Nikon user since my father introduced me to them in 1960 and they have always been my number 1 choice for fun and my business. The knowledge base on this web site is excellent, I'll be back. Keep up the good work and thank you. Fiat lux. Rick - Rick

I just purchased a used (although I do not think a photo had been taken with it)N75. It came with a nikkor G 24-100mm f3.5-5.6 AF lens. The lens says "made in Thailand." I cannot find a reference to this lens anywhere. I live in the US. Was this lens sold only in certain countries? Also, I thought all nikon equipment was manufactured in Japan. Any help finding documentation, info. or opinions about this lens would be most appreciated. Chris

Hi all,
I've bought a Nikon EM body and the 'beep' doesn't work: the rest of the auto metering seems to respond to button pressing and changes of light. Does this lack of 'beep' mean anything other than a 'lack of beep'? Do I need the lens on to get it to 'beep'. I've tried pressing all the lens couplings at once (if you haven't guessed, I'm yet to get a lens) but not a 'peep' (or a 'beep').
Any seasoned owners experience of this issue is very welcome.

Is the FG screen system the same as the EM? The bodies are basically the same, so I think it should be, but I don't recall dealing with an FG. Remove the lens and look inside the lens mount just above the screen: if there is a single screw in the center, then it's probably the same as the EM - scroll down about 5 messages for a description of the replacement procedure, it's pretty easy. The trick then is to find a replacement screen. Unfortunately, since these were not user-interchangeable, screens were not sold separately ~ your only source is likely to be a junk EM, FG or FG20 body.
