I have a Nikon FM10 with various lenses and a 3X converter. Now I want to buy a Nikon digital model, is there a model that my lenses for FM10 could fit? Because if there are, then I will buy only the body. Right now I am considering Nikon D50 (6.1 Megafixel, SLR Digital Camera). Any advise will be appreciated.

Hi Anthony:

I don't think an FM10 would be your best investment; it was not built by Nikon, and it does not seem to be as rugged or reliable as other Nikon models. I would recommend a Nikon FM instead. Although much older, I think you can count on it to last longer than an FM10.

I am interested in photography and understand that it can be pretty pricey. The most important thing i am interested in is learning from the basics. There is a choice in a D40 but I want to start out with a 35mm film camera. Looking into the FM10 but after reading the review here of the FM10 I am unsure of getting the camera. Seems to me there are some concerns of the FM10 but is it in the end a good camera to learn on? Solid body? These are two of my main concerns becuase I want to buy prime lenses and be able to use them in the future and maybe later buy a D40.

Any comments would help me in choosing a camera to build a working knowledge of aperature,shutter speed, ISO, etc. If you think another camera would help instead of the FM10 I am up for suggestions.

Please help.

Thank you,
Anthony T

I am missing a battery compartment cover for the FTN Finder! If anyone has a spare to send / sell I'd be grateful.

Thanks in advance

I have an awesome Nikon F camera I used for an art photography class at UCLA on Ebay auction starting at $99.00. It produces deeply saturated blacks -- almost dimensional. Auction closes in a few days.

I have a good used Nikon F camera for sale. Its lens is Nikkor H-C Auto 1:3.5 with a F=28mm. What would be a fair price to ask for it?

Hi, thanks for a very useful message board(!) I am looking for two specific focus screens, Type K and Type H3 for my F Photomic FTn, particularly for use with some very shallow DOF lenses that I am now lucky enough to own (85mm f1.8 and 300mm f2.8) that the standard screens really don't work with as well as I would like.

I am based in the UK (Cambridge) so anyone that can help locate these screens for me here would be extremely welcome to get in touch.

Thanks in anticipation, Neil

Hi Humberto:

I don't know of any counterfeit Nikon F's, so I expect it's original. I have seen prices of Nikon F's vary all over the place depending on the particular variant.... with a Photomic T prism I've seen them for less than $100 in decent user condition, and they can be much higher.

Generally, an F with the T prism is probably the least valuable, especially if the meter doesn't work. With an FTN prism (the last type), they will be higher, and they are also higher with a plain, non-meter prism or with the early Photomic prism that had a meter cell on the front instead of reading through the lens.

For a general idea of current values, look at auctions on eBay that look EXACTLY like the camera you are asking about. Look very closely at the front of the prism, the differences are subtle.
