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 Lorin: The EM camera uses Nikon Series E, Nikkor AI and Nikkor AI-S series lenses. Most autofocus Nikkors will also work, but I would stick with the manual focus lenses. To tell the difference among the various lens series, see the above URL link.

I thnk someone has just explained on the usable lenses with his Nikon F401 ealier, the same applies to the Nikon EM (MF/AF) - minus the older Non AI (MF - manual focus) and Nikkor G-series Nikkor (AF - autofocus). So, it is safe with wide range of lenses (includes 3rd party labels).

Dear Summer: Nikon FG has a ON/OFF lever next to the shuter speed ring. I remember the FG uses auto power off feature to conserve battery power, but still, you need to trun the power to OFF position if you are not using it for a long period of time. This mamalsyain site has a section the FG see:
The bottom section of that main page even has an intruction manual (PDF) for Nikon FG to download, but I would suggest also read the 5-6 pages the author wrote and compare with the content on the instruction as it has other thnsg not found on the manual. Hope this guide helps.

E series issue. NO, I don't understand why it can't focus on infinity. Don't worry on the lens focusing, just set to the infinity mark. Next, use the depth of field scale is another good method, say assuming if you are setting an aperture at f/8, focus and check the few color lines on the lens barrel and place the infinity mark at one point at the far end that will do the trick.

The Nikon F401 should work with ALL kins of AF Nikkor lenses (EXCEPT the new G-Nikkor as awell as some pricey AF-I and AF-S older versions); for manual focus Nikkor, usable EXCEPT for older non-Ai Nikkor lenses. The safe way is to use only the normal version without those funny extra-name tag (anyway, they are very expensive, sorry..).

I currently teach at a high school and loan out a Nikon FG and it seems to eat through batteries. Is this a common problem with this camera or is there and on/off button i am unaware of?

Good suggeston. However, one main problem I experient shooting low light photography is the slow shutter speed. The EM is an auto camera, the speed may go down to more than a second. In such case, blur will inevitably form. So, fast speed film should be used as Rick has suggested. But tripod or any form of support is also useful. There can also be shoot with movement - sometimes, stage shoot can have some movement to show the action. You can slso shoot using slow shuuter speed but use flash to create a visible image in the blurry images or simply just shoot at a slower speed (even with fast speed film, I would think shutter speed may comes down to 1/4 sec. you have to overcome that - the effect can be different in each of these combinations. LAST - try shooting with backlit (just show the outline of the performers against black - but you have to tell the photo lab that is intentional - if not, photos will be gray when process by AUTO adjustment by the lab assistant).
