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.

Hi Lori:

The FG and FG-20 will give you the choice of automatic or manual exposure control. So will the FE and FE2, which are more ruggedly built.

If you are ONLY interested in manual and don't need the automatic option, the FM, FM2 and FM2N are excellent, ruggedly built cameras that will operate even if the battery goes dead. One of these would be my first choice. They do have built in light meters that indicate in the viewfinder whether your exposure settings are "correct", but they let you make the decision.

All of the above will work perfectly with your lenses and flash. Only the FG and FG20 will (I think) accept the motor winder from your EM.

I am shopping for a used camera and want a model that offers manual opertion, but has the ability to operate with a flash (in a hotshoe). I have a motordrive, flash and macro lense that are compaible with a Nikon EM body, and have been considering the Nikon FG as an opition. Does the Nikon FG have a manual setting (apeture and shutter speed)? Or do I want to look at the FG-20 for that? Would my lenses ect still fit and operate on one of these bodies? I am so confused!!

Hi John: Your 43-86mm zoom is a Non-AI lens. Most (but not all) Non-AI Nikkors can be converted to function with AI series cameras like the EM by maching the back edge of the aperture ring (years ago, you could just buy the AI ring from Nikon for a few dollars, but not any more). There are paople offering this service; typical prices are in the $25-50 range. You might try Googling "AI Conversion" and see if you find something, or I could point you to one.

Dear John: here is a lens development page that I compiled for this lens (48-86mm)
I am not sure if yours are which version, the last version is actually an Ai Zoom Nikkor which should works flawlessly with your EM, the earlier ones requires Ai conversion to fit for metering use with the EM. To find out which version of the Nikkor is, you can copy and paste this URL: to verify your lens version of your Zoom Nikkor 43-86mm f/3.5 lens.
