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.

Is there any way to tell what year a camera was sold by its serial number?

Hi I picked up a used n2000 that seems to work great but I can not load film into the camera. The winding know will not move up to pop open the back. I have found a manual and read the directions, but the know seems to have some Damage to it and I am wondering if something is broken and that is why. If it is broken can you get it fixed fairly inexpensively??? I only paid like $8.00 for it but it would be nice if I could still use it. Thanks for your time... - Andrew

First of all, thank you for putting up the manuals for S and SP cameras. They are very useful. It was a thoughtful service, and I appreciate it. I am interested in purchasing 35 mm lenses for my SPs, preferably with hoods. Anyone who has one for sale is invited to contact me.

Some guides (basic reference from D50, not D40):
1) DX Nikkor: All functions supported
2) Type G or D AF Nikkor: All functions supported
3) Micro Nikkor 85 mm F2.8D: All functions supported except autofocus and some exposure modes
4) Other AF Nikkor: All functions supported except 3D Color Matrix Metering II
5) AI-P Nikkor: All functions supported except 3D Color Matrix Metering II and autofocus
6) Non-CPU: Can be used in exposure mode M, but exposure meter does not function; electronic range finder can be used if maximum aperture is f/5.6 or faster Note: IX Nikkor lenses can not be used.

I think your lenses are fall under item 6. Meaning: there will be no exposure guide on the camera even if it is in M mode. A SUCK feature by Nikon on the entry level DSLRs..

I have a Nikon FG with the following lenses: Series E 50MM 1:1.8; Albinar 28MM 1:2.8 wide angle; Albinar 80-200MM 1:3.9 Zoom. I believe these are AI-S type lenses.

I am thinking about buying the new Nikon D40. My question is: Can I use my existing lenses with the D40? I understand that I will have to use manual focus. Is this possible? Practical? Any problems?

.... the "strange reason" is to save the batteries and keep the shutter from staying open while you load the film and advance to frame one. many people do this with the lens covered to avoid making extra waste exposures, since the labs will print these and charge for the prints. if the camera stayed in autoexposure mode for this, you'd get very long exposures.

To: Sam Ames.
Hi Sam, a bit late, so maybe you've found out by now: with the FG camera, the 60/125 led's will flash when you've inserted film and have not yet wound the film through to '1' on the film counter. For some strange reason, Nikon FG and EM will not meter until you've reached picture '1' - before that, the speed is always set to 1/90, hence both 60/125 are lit.
Greetz, Rob

My dad has an old Nikon AF L35 camera. It appears that the self-timer is permanently on now - has an automatic 10 second delay. We have no manual anymore. Would it be true that the self-timer is controlled by the lever on the front of the camera in the upper left corner? Moving it has no affect on the delay - so I fear it's broken and will be permanently on time delay. Is my analysis correct? Or is the timer controlled elsewhere and maybe there's still hope?
