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 Dan:

If you just had your camera cleaned and repaired, take it back and make them do the job correctly. You paid for it, you should get a camera that works.

I have a Nikon EM that I haven't used for several years. I just had it professionally cleaned and repaired so I can use it again. When I press the shutter release button the internal F-stop meter does not move. How can I fix this issue?
Thank you.

Hello Amitava:

On a bright sunny day, set the camera to manual with the shutter speed set (as nearly as possible) to the same number as the ISO film speed setting. Point the camera at a grassy area in full bright sunlight and adjust the lens aperture until the meter display indicates a correct exposure. The lens aperture should be about f/16 if the meter is working properly.

Thank you for assembling this valuable and thorough web site! I have been passionate about Nikon cameras since 1966. I was a school photographer in high school and all I could afford at that time was a Canon FTQL. For a 16 year old, an SLR like this was exotic and I bought it with money I earned mowing lawns. My friends had Kodak Instamatic cameras. When I entered college, I unknowingly left the shutter cocked for about a year and the camera shutter mechanism froze up from the prolonged tension. That was the end of my first SLR camera. Oh well, it was all I could afford, not what I really wanted.

After serving the in Marines and graduating from college in the mid-seventies, I bought the camera I had always dreamed about, a Nikon F series. When I entered the camera store, I had my mind set on buying a Nikon F, the legendary camera that I saw in the movie “Blow Up.” It was also well know as the Vietnam war camera man’s first choice. In 1976 Nikon had long since stopped shipping the F so I purchased a shiny new black F2. That camera never let me down and I loved it. Except for the meter head, it was all mechanical. When I moved to California from Boston, I took it with me and took it on my motorcycle rides in the mountains and to the coast. Most of the early pictures I have of my wife to be and myself were captured by that camera. The pictures of the Hearst Castle, Yosemite and Torre Pines in San Diego are all fond memories captured on film.

We got married and moved back to the Boston area. I lost the F2 in a hotel fire at the Trapp Family Lodge in Vermont. My new bride and I were staying at this quaint ski lodge in the winter of 1980 when a chimney fire ignited it just after midnight and it burned it to the ground in sub-zero weather. Luckily we were able to get out by jumping out a ground floor window but my wedding ring and the F2 were burned up in the fire.

I had home owners insurance that covered the camera but the claim wouldn’t be settled right away so I bought a used Nikon FTn until I could recover the money. I used that for about 6-9 months and then purchased a Nikon F3 when I got the claim money. Again, the F2 had been discontinued so I couldn’t buy a new F2 replacement. I was disappointed that the F3 was more electronic but bought it anyway. The times, they were a changin’ – enter the electronic camera evolution of the ‘80s. I took many pictures of my kids and my dogs with the F3 and still have it. My kids are almost through college now and the dogs have long gone. Time has passed so quickly but I still have the excellent photos.

The digital camera revolution came near the turn of millennium and my wife bought our family an Olympus 4040 4.1MP digital camera for Christmas in 2002. It was a novelty for us and I took many shots that came out well. However, I still felt more comfortable with the precision and heft of the Nikon F3.

With the massive switch to digital by most people, I have been buying the film cameras on Ebay that I loved in the past but could not afford when they were in their prime. I bought two Nikon F2s from a kid whose father had passed on from cancer. He said his dad loved the cameras when he was alive. I assured him that they would have a good home and honestly felt like I was taking delivery on a living thing – a bit weird. I bought a black Nikorrmat F3, as well. I broke down and splurged on a used but near mint Hasselblad CM/500. That one was in “Blow Up” as well. I bought a Gossen Luna Pro meter to go with it, another extravagance I couldn’t afford many years ago. I may be re-living the past but I am in seventh heaven.

I have no doubt there are many folks out there that relate to what I am writing here. I love high end cameras – Nikons and Hasselblads. They made history. We saw them in the early Jame Bond movies and they traveled into space. Pulitzer Prize photos were taken with them. They were over-engineered but still highly useable twenty, thirty and forty years later. I have a deep respect and appreciation for their enduring quality. How can we ever let go of these beautiful instruments?

I recognize that technology brings with it advancements and better photo opportunities beyond than what these beautiful old cameras can deliver. I bought a Nikon D200 10.2 MP camera about a year ago. The quality of the images and ease of use amazes me.

However, I still enjoy getting up early when I can and catch the early light photo opportunities in historic Concord, MA. For a sunrise over a farm or an early morning shot of the North Bridge, the Hasselblad is with me.

Thanks, again, for your superb camera site.
