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 Doc: I can't think of anything quick and easy. Does it do this even in the dark, regardless of the lens aperture set (I'm guessing it does, by your question)? It might be possible for a short in the meter circuit to cause something like this, though most electrical failures would be more likely to send the needle to the bottom rather than the top. You said the beeper works: does it still work a few days later, or does the battery die quickly? One last question: does the shutter speed seem to match the 1/1000+ indicated speed, or if you trip it in the dark do you get a longer open time? I imagine this is not going to be a do-it-yourself fix..... rick

It is kind of a total surprise to have found this website which contains so much of useful information on film Nikon. I don't seem be able to locate the creator's email from this site from his humor writing and (rather) complicated site indexes; so, may I make use of this to send my sincerely appreciation for all you have done for me (us). This site is full of surprises ! I have just found another section on Pentax LX and XK (Canon ? not for me..).

I too noticed this interface of the Pictorial history has changed (for the better, that is good !). For the F801S (N8008) instruction Manual, go to this page (there is a link for download the User manual (beware, it is 12MB PDF file)

Oohhs... Made a mistake, yours is a Nikon FM and NOT the FM2 series ). The shutter release button is different. Here is what I copied from the instruction manual ( "... Operation by Cable Release The shutter release button can also be tripped with the use of a cable release (or some similar accessory). To attach the cable release to the camera, screw the threaded cable connector onto the mount provided with the button. The shutter is then tripped by depressing the cable release plunger. Cable release operation is especially recommended for critical shooting situations, such as photomicrography or time exposure, where vibrationfree shutter release is of prime importance. Important:: If you mount the Nikon FM on a tripod with a large head, contact between the lens body and the head may make it impossible to turn the lens aperture ring. If this happens, use the special tripod adapter (supplied with the camera) between the tripod head and camera body....". It looks similar to the Nikon F2 type of thread. So, if you insist of having a Nikon made device, the correct one should be Nikon AR-2 (cable-less). Other sites for reference:

AR-3 is Nikon own cable release. The locking and holder section is fairly large. You NEED NOT have to buy the AR-3, this is not an often used accessory. There are plenty of third party cable releases on the market, much much cheaper than the Nikon. The most important thing is to make sure it has a lock device (Try it several times first); next is, when you push the button, always measure the extension is long enough to ensure a push in action to the shutter release button (as some of them may be made for other brands. The best way is to bring your camera along to try it out. I found my Hasselblad X-pan release is not usable for the Nikon. Lastly, smaller but a rigidly well made one is better (I guessmost of the time, we need it for long exposure locking of the shutter button).
