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 Rebecca:

I don't think it matters in the FG. Circular polarizers are required for cameras that use semi-transparent mirrors behind the lens.... this is needed for autofocus systems and some metering systems, but I don't think the FG is one of them. A circular one won't hurt, but it costs more than a linear.

I don't use filters much, myself. What ones you want depends on the kind of photography you do and the kind of film you use. In black & white, a red filter will darken the sky and make clouds look much more dramatic, and cut some haze; it will also darken grass and foliage a lot. You can also use it with infrared film. A green filter is sometimes used in portraits of men, to exaggerate the skin texture and make them look more rugged ... this is because it darkens the skin tones but not reflections and highlights on the skin surface. With color film you need to use great caution in filter selection - even a fairly light filter will throw colors off so you need to be sure that you really want the effect that you're going to get. There are some special purpose filters that are worth having for color: a "fluorescent" filter, a pink color, neutralizes the green tint of fluorescent lighting, and a light blue (sorry, can't remember the number) will take the orange out of incandescent lights. But often you have a mixture of incandescent and fluorescent lighting in a single scene, and there's no way to filter for that, so sometimes you just have to get control of the light rather than depending on filters to correct it.

I don't know what the purpose of a sepia filter would be.

I have a Nikon FG, and am looking into purchasing various filters for it (particularly a polarizing filter). I looked to my manual in order to figure out whether I should use circular or linear but it doesn't say (or if it does, it's so small I can't read it). Does anyone know which should be used with an FG, and additionally, what other filters should be used with the FG (I was looking into red, sepia, green...)?
Thanks so much!

Hi Mike:

Last I knew, you could buy replacement back doors for these plastic wonders from Nikon. I don't have the number offhand, but hopefully you could make connection through their website. Nikon's repair parts prices have always been very reasonable.

As I recall, you will have to save the hinge pin(s) from the old back and insert them into the new one, so don't throw anything away.

" ... Nikon Corporation has recently reported positive financial results which saw group net profit climb by 20% in the fiscal first half which ended in September. Group sales also increased by 9.8% to 342.85 billion yen in the same period. Sales of high end digital SLR cameras and the success of products like the D70s and D50 have helped contribute to these positive figures....". These Japanese Fxxx only put profits on their priority list. Once they read their inventry report it doesn't move in numbers, it is gone. Even if I thought the FM3A is a fantastic camera for entry user, they preferred to sticked with the stupidly-spec China made FM10.

Hi guys, i bought my f100 a few years ago from a coworker while working at a camera shop. It's been great up to this point but i seem to have broken a small piece off of the back door that locks into the door release button. I think my only option is to replace the back door, and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of places to get one, and once acquired, where i could find instructions on how to put it on. Thanks for your time!

I have an n-90 s which was once connected to Kodak DCS 460. I bought a conversion kit i.e. back, plate, battery holder. The camera won't load the film. Also "custom" is displayed in the window. Is there some sort of reset that needs to be performed??
