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.

Hello. My dad passed away two years ago. In going through things we found an old Nikonos II. It has two underwater flash units and some misc. things that I am not certain of. There is a book from 1977, Underwater with the Nikonos & Nikon Systems by Herb Taylor, pamphlet: How to Use Underwater Flash Unit for Nikonos/Nikon and another pamphlet: Nikkormat. Everything is in a large brown hand tooled leather case. The camera itself is not in a seperate case and there are no extra lens. I am not familiar with cameras (my dad would be so disappointed as he gave me a very nice camera I never learned to use). My mom was going to give this to give this away as none of us can use it. However, I thought it may be worth something. I don't know how to check it out since I am not very familiar with manual cameras. I know this is a tough question, sight unseen but, can anyone advise the possible worth of this camera? I would appreciate any assistance. Thank you very much.

Hi Lesli, May & Kristen: Have you tried a new battery? The Nikon EM and FG will not operate if the battery is dead: you will be able to wind the shutter once, it will not release, and that's all you get. If you're still hung up with fresh batteries, I'm afraid you've got a repair shop visit that could cost more than the going value of the camera. rick :)=

Hi, I've been trying to get into photography, and I picked up a Nikon EM at a yardsale for 5 bucks. And (surprise) it doesn't work. The shutter release worked once- then after that it wouldn't go at all, as if it were "stuck". Then a few hours of just pressing the shutter release button, the shutter DID release, but it stayed stuck. I managed to get it un stuck- I don't remember how- but now it is back to its normal self- not releasing the shutter. Everything else seems to work, and I don't have any money to get it repaired yet... I plan on trying to though. i just was wondering if it is something I could fix on my own. Thank you, Lesli

hi, i just discovered this site so i am unaware of the navigation. i have a Nikon FG. Lately, i have been experiencing some technical difficulties with it. When I opt to take a picture, the lever goes back and comes back in, and when i push the shutter, nothing happens. i'm quite puzzled.

Hi Colleen: If the surface of the lens is dirty it can be cleaned; if it is scratched, it cannot be economically repaired, but it may not be serious enough to cause any problems in use.

To clean the lens, first brush away any loose dirt with a soft brush (or canned air). Then, if you do not have lens cleaning fluid and tissues, you can use a soft cloth like a well laundered T-shirt and water to gently wipe the surface of the lens to remove dirt. Finally, breathe on the glass and wipe it clean with a dry portion of the cloth. If you have a micro-fiber cloth available, that is more effective than regular cotton for removing fingerprints and similar marks.

Any marks that remain after this, you're probably stuck with.

Hi I have a nikon FG-20 camera I got from my mother and it seems the lense inside is either dirty or maybe scratched, I was just wondering if there is a way of cleaning it or repairing it. I took the lense off to see if it was that, that was scratched but I still see a smudge or scratch through the lense . thanks for the help

Re:submitting photos:- Hi there! I will start by stating my belief that not only is yours the most informative and interesting Nikon site I have ever seen, it is one of the BEST web sites on ANY subject I have seen in 15 years of browsing. It reminds me of when the web it was at its best providing a TON of information with no garbage on screen. Only beautiful photographs compete with the text on your web site and they are a pleasure to view.

I must also mention your own writing style. Despite referring to it occasionally and modestly yourself it is also a pleasure to read and NEVER confusing. I come from England myself and find it hard not to criticise my neighbouring Americans sometimes while living here for their English!!! The only language that matters on your site is the language NIKONESE, and you speak it fluently, with an obvious respect and devotion you should be very proud of!
