Various Nikon camera models - Message Board/Gu
estbook

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 Angel:

First, what camera are you talking about?

Second, what do you mean by "the shutter won't open back up"? It's not supposed to be open after you take a picture.

If you mean that the mirror is sticking in the up position and blacking out the viewfinder, and if the camera is an SLR and it's 20 years old or more, there's a fairly good chance that the mirror is sticking to the black foam rubber strip in front of the focusing screen. This foam can be replaced. You can get a kit for this for $10 or less. I don't know if this is something you want to do yourself or not, but I'm sure you're capable of it if you're careful and patient. Any repair service will do it for you if you don't want to do it yourself.

Thant's all kind of a wild guess, though, based on the amount of information you gave.

My Nikon FG has a missing film advance lever and a screw missing from the front face (right next to the "NIKON"). Does anyone know where I can buy replacement parts? thanks

Thanks very much, FMer! I was not clear on whether the MD-15 could be used on other cameras besides the FA.

For older Nikon SLR models which may not have the dedicated made for model kind of ProBack, this is an alternative method used those days - but hard to find now, it surfaced with one lately. http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/special/Nikon_PREVIEW/index.htm

a question on somwhere FM somewhere. Nikon MD-15 is NOT usable with FM class camera. But the Nikon FA - which the MD-15 was specificaly made for the camera, can accept MD-12 but at a slower film advance rate (I think drop from 3.3 fps down to 2.8 fps). still ...it is a good combination.

Hi Darryl: You can remove the screen by removing a single screw just above it, inside the lens mount. Watch for the frame and support ring, which will be loose.

To clean, just blow it off with canned compressed air. Do not use liquids, and do not wipe the screen with anything more than a soft makeup brush to remove dust.

The only source for a replacement screen will be another FG, an FG20 or an EM.
