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 son is taking a high school photography course and needs to use a 35mm camera, not a digital. I have an FE2, unused in several years, in the closet. Got it out, and when you push the shutter button nothing happens. The shutter will only open and shut on manual, bulb and M250. Took it to a local camera store. The owner put a new battery in it and the situation did not change. The shutter will open but not close. I think the metering is off.

Question is whether there is some "fail/safe" on the camera body that is keeping the shutter from working, like a lever open or shut or somthing else, or whether the camera has had it.

The only other issue is that the body is missing the rewind crank. One of kids must have played with it, when they were little and were poking around in my closet.

I have two issues: one, is there something keeping this from working that I should know about
The camera store says he has to ship the body to Atlanta and get an estimate. What is the value of this camera and does it pay to fix it? The camera store has an FM body for sale and I have the 52mm lens and a Vivitar 70-150mm telephoto lens and both would fit the FM but I hate to buy something and just give up on the FE2. However the kid needs a 35mm to use in about ten days and I have to either fix this, buy a new one or borrow something somewhere. All suggestions are welcome. Thanks, Steve

OOps. Just posted this to the wrong forum. Take two:

I have an EM that seems to have a battery problem. After following the intructions on the site, I got the meter working, but after leaving in a drawer for a couple weeks, I can't get it to work again. Meter problem? Battery problem? Is there a trick to getting the meter to start up? Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Eddie: has replacement shutter curtain stock ... look under "camera repair specific tools" and then under "restoration supplies". You can also cut up an old film changing bag if you have one lying around. Have you replaced shutter curtains before? I have some notes on the job for the Nikon S, which I can send you if you email me directly for them.

I have a Nikon S rangefinder in excellent condition but unfortunely the curtain is wrinkled. Does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement for this. I have tried EBAY but no success so far. Thanks.

Hi Colin: You're right, the motor only advances; rewind is manual. I don't have a source for a replacement rewind shaft and knob but you can probably find a parts body to get them from. However, in the EM there is a fairly fragile part that forms the bushing that this shaft runs in, and there is a fair chance that this is broken in your camera if the shaft and knob are gone. A replacement part for this is available (even cheap) from but there will be some disassembly required if you have to replace it.

I inherited a Nikon EM that is missing the film rewind crank and film rewind knob. Where can I get these parts without being ripped off? The camera has a motor drive on it. But I think the motor drive only forwards the film and won't rewind it. Thanks

An incredibly useful reference site on Nikon (cameras/lenses). It should be housed under official Nikon site ! This is what they didn't provide us ! Good job.
