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.

I can't imagine that I'm the only one, but I would love to see a digital databack made for the older FM/FE2/FA series cameras. I've got a not trivial amount of money tied up in lenses and bodies that even a decent 3-4 MP ccd mounted into a back would be worth something. Conceptually, it should be pretty straight forward (by replacing the film pressure plate and using the film canister chamber for batteries). Anyone with any thoughts or leads?

The "lenses for F401(x)" for Nikon FM etc. is not the main issue, the lens type is. I would think EXCEPT for the new ##G-Series##, all the Nikkor lenses (AF/MF (except for the oldies with non-Ai) will works flawlessly. THE G Nikkor doesn't has an aperture ring so, they cannot be used for manual or aperture control adjustments of exposure. IF yours are AF Nikkor (those G-Nikkor doesn't has a inner aperture ring near the rear mount in a separate ring) will & SHOULD WORK !

I read yours as FM series (any models, the last within the series is Nikon FM3A - by the way, a great write-up !) but there is no FM4 yet (not to my knowledge..) I guess you are referring to Nikon F4 ? see

YEeeap. The SP was used to to be the professional class rangefinder camera. In fact, that was the camera that first time the west which dominated by Leica and Contax who first took notice of the quality of the Japanese manufactuers (camera and lenses). For any Nikon fan, the SP has a specaial collectible. Good conditioned SP is very very expensive some interesting accessories like the MOtor Drive + others like angle finders etc. are very scarce in numbers and aslo very expensive. Personally, I like the SP more than others.

A free Nikon F90X (N90s) instruction manual in PDF with a download link is provided here: as the for TW Zoom - I can't help as I have no clue where to download, you may try may be ask for photocopies, it should be cheaper than original. Another alternative is to ask Nikon for backdated copy - they sell at around USD25-00 to 30-00 a copy for the original / reprint.

Hi Mark: Short of being backed over by a grbage truck, there is not much worse that can happen to a camera than salt water. There might have been some hoe for it if you had immediately immersed it in a large container of fresh (distilled is best) water and delivered it to the repair shop in that condition. Given time to work, the salt has probably corroded pretty much every moving metal part in the camera and some of the electronics. It's probably not technically beyond repair, but it would require a very thorough disassembly and cleaning of individual tiny parts before reassembly. If you just want to see what's inside it, go ahead; you have nothing to lose. But the chances of bringing it back to life at this point are virtually nil.

I have a Nikon FG that had taken a splash of saltwater during a sailing trip. Shortly thereafter I lost the use of the meter controlled functions. I sent it to a repair facility and they tried to clean a pcb as best they could, but deemed the camera B.E.R (Beyond Economical Repair).

After thier cleaning, I do have the functions of the LEDs in the viewfinder, but when I press the shutter release, the mirror flips, the shutter opens, but stays locked up until I either remove the battery, or move the shutter speed dial to either M90 or B. Any hope of some kitchen table repairs for this little jewel? I see FGs on EBay for $50, so it's not like I'm looking at fixing an F4. As far as comments about the "amateuristic" look or nature of a programmed exposure camera, maybe people should look at it as an even MORE versatile tool, with more exosure options available at your fingertips. I've spent many hours under the hood of a 4X5 view camera, and burned through literally thousands of rolls of film thru 2 1/4 Mamiyas and my old Nikon F. Sometimes "Program" allows for a little less thinking, and a little more artistic endeavor---somewhat worry free.
