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.

my light meter in my Nikon EM stopped working. Thought it was the batteries, but put new ones in, and it still not working.

I replied this via the digital camera MB section, so I just repeat once again here:
No mistakes. Nikon flash offers excellent backward compatibility. The ony thing you miss is the new features. Virtually all the available features in your F801s can be use seamlessly with the SB-28 because F801(s) was like the first among the series that offers / started the Nikon great flash expousre control system. Here are a few links that are useful to you:

"Nikon F801a nd F801S: Read.."main enhancement of a predictive AF tracking system along with inclusion of a SPOT metering has elevated Nikon's line of defense for its midrange products from external aggression. Main features of the Nikon F801s/N8008s include, improved performance in autofocusing, focus tracking for moving subjects, versatile Matrix Metering with Centre-Weighted and spot metering overrides, Matrix Balanced Fill-Flash and retaining the fast metal shutter with 1/8000 second top speed with 1/250 sec. sync. in a sleek, ergonomically designed body. On the other hand, by maintaining the integrity of its lens mount, thus enabling new users to tab into whole new field of Nikon autofocusing while supporting longtime Nikon users an opportunity to upgrade to try out various advanced photographic technology available was easily one of the worth mentioned feature in this camera during the time of its introduction. Note: the F801s doesn't support autofocusing with Nikkor AF-I or AF-S lenses, you have to use manual focus instead..". Extracted from page:

Further, this is helpful:

as it outlines the differences between the two models in system compatibilities.

I have a Nikon FG which I absolutely love! However, the shutter is stuck open and I can't seem to resolve the problem. I have had this problem in the past and a fresh set of batteries has resolved the problem. I have replaced the batteries and the shutter is still stuck in the open position. Does anyone have any suggestions to remedy this problem?

Hi George:

No, a month or two in the camera won't do any harm. "Professional" films (marked as such and sold only in camera stores) are more time sensitive and their colors can drift a bit if not used quickly, but standard films are quite stable. I would probably not advise leaving film in a camera more than 6 months or so, but I have certainly done much worse than that myself and not seen any harm come from it.

I loaded both my nikon s3 2000s with film two weeks ago but the weather down here is not condusive to photography. How long should i leave the cameras loaded? Will a month or so hurt the cameras? My daughter is expecting twins and I want to keep the cameras ready. I've heard horror stories about leaving film in camera too long - what do you think?

Just a wee correction - the L35 TWAF was a twin lens compact in a similar vein to the Canon SureShot Tele, and not a zoom.

Both had a quite horrible and disconcerting noise when changing focal length. Plus, it was like being kicked in the face by a very small mule every time the lever (I think "Lever" is the right word - they really were crude) was activated.

This particular Nikon (we loved the original L35AF) compact was in the same class as the F-401 - I remember a Nikon trade show launching the F-401, sometime in the mid-80s, we nylon-trousered salesmen had belittled the camera relentlessly to the assembled reps (even now, it's completely naff - I stand exonerated).

Couple of days later, a bigwig at Nikon UK phones up the boss personally and has a huge rant at our poor attitude!!!! We got hell for being drunk and slagging "the brick" off. I really hated selling them, felt so guilty, especially as there was F2AS stock right behind me (not that those customers would be offered one, as that was like trying to sell an Aston Martin to a Fiesta punter...) what I would give for a couple of those black silicon photo diode beautys now though!

Have a Nikonos-III model camera. Needed to know price range because I want to sell it. Perhaps if you don't know you could lead me in the right direction for getting such information. Camera also has 28MM Ikelite and Toshiba TM-1 Flash. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
