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.

Fantastic site, it is always a pleasure to visit. Although I have owned quite a few Nikons over the years and still own and use Nikons, I still have fond memories of my first Nikon camera, the Nikkorex F.

You can go to - for the story. If anyone has a Nikkorex F they would like to sell (at a reasonable price) please get in touch with me. I am currently working out of Thailand. Thank you, George Mann

Hi Abram:

My recommendation would be an FM. The camera is very rugged and not too expensive, and it handles very well. It also accepts a motor drive, although in my personal opinion these are pretty much a waste of money and one more thing to go wrong. I don't think I've ever seen a photograph that was made better by the presence of a motor drive on the camera, but I could be wrong.

My second choice would be the FM2, but it will cost more than the FM. Benefits are interchangeable screens, faster shutter (and flash synch) speeds, and it's newer. After that, I would look at a Nikkormat FT2 or FTN, but these do not accept a motor drive.

There are lots of other Nikon models to choose from, of course. Almost without exception, they will be either more expensive or less durable than those listed above, or both.....

I have the new Coolpix P5000 (10 MP) it's grat but I am trying to put my FC-E8 fisheye lens on it. Nikon incorectly suggested I use the UR-E6 adapter. My question is will the UR-E20 work with the FC-E8?

I a also looking for a way to trigger the camera remotely any products out there that will do so?

Hi Charlotte:

No, you can't convert your camera body into a digital.

However, all of your lenses will work on any new Nikon digital SLR body, so all you have to do is pick one. And you can still keep your 35mm for when you feel like shooting some film.
