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.

To Nikon or Not to

I am new to this field can anyone and I am a modeling photographer. tell that substituting Nikon Lenses (Yuck Costly~!) with Sigma or Tamron will work good. Or I am going to loose quality. I have a set old Nikon 200mm and 50 to 70 mm lens. Secondly in my opinion prime lenses deliver much better quality but Yuck~again they are costlier……….

if you're used to a film cameras, digital cameras have a shutter release delay that can be very annoying. some are worse than others.... my nikon coolpix is precisely timed so that if i try to take a picture of a jumping dolphin the shutter will release at the very instant that the water closes in over him at the end of his jump. the old sony mavicas were so bad that photos of children playing more often than not came out with no children in the picture.....

film cameras do have advantages: they take the picture when you want them to, they (in many cases) can operate without batteries and they can even be used on airliners during the "electronic blackout" periods.

I just purchased a Cannon SD600 digital camera. Why is there such a delay from the time I press the shutter button until the camera actually shoots the picture?

Is there a mode that this delay time is minimized?

28Ti ? Nikon P&S film classic ! Although mopst people preferred the 35Ti but I think the 28Ti is more practical with its 28mm Nikkor wideangle. Leo has a site on both models at

DX film canisters (99.99% of today's 35mm) have bare metal areas on the sides to conduct electric current.

The layout of these areas is a code that (most modern) cameras are equipped to read.

They tell the camera the ISO (ASA) ' speed ', etc, of the film so the electronics know how to set the metering and other things in the camera w/o you having to set a number manually.

Turning off DX allows you to 'lie' to the camera for special exposures and/or use special film canisters.

I'm wondering if there is a way to convert my N6006 into a Digital Camera. Did Nikon ever make a conversion?

Hi Rachel:

Any more, different people have different definitions of "manual". To some it can me anything with manual focus, to others it also means a mechanical shutter without automatic exposure control.

For both manual focus and manual-only exposure control, there are the FM2N, FM2, and FM models. I would recommend these in that order; the FM is probably the best deal for the money of the group, the FM2N is the best camera; but all are very similar in construction.

If you would like autoexposure (but still with a full manual control option), there are the FM3a, FE2 and FE. The FM3a is the newest and best of the group, but again the basic design and construction is very similar. The FE and FE2 will not work without batteries; all of the other models listed above can keep on shooting after the batteries quit.

All of these are fully compatible with lenses from the EM, and all are of more rugged construction and can be expected to give longer service than the EM. The FE and FM are not newer than the EM, however, they are from about the same time period. The other models listed are newer.
