Got an F4e

14 February 2022 - 01:47 PM

I started using and collecting Nikon film cameras not quite 2 years ago and I'm up to 19 bodies and 29 lenses including 2 F1 and 3 F2, and got my first F4 this week. I love this camera. You can mount anything in F mount on it and get matrix metering. I don't mind the size and weight. 5705af857f1c6ecbd0351cd9f8b83990.jpg

MD-2 issue

25 November 2021 - 11:06 AM

I have an MD-2 with MB-1 and it works fine, except I noticed that the motor counter gets to 15 and doesn't count down any further. if I manually click it past 15 it continues correctly. I'm thinking a worn gear tooth... This probably explains why my first roll got ripped off the cartridge at the end.

Nikon FE & FM focus screens

29 September 2021 - 10:42 AM

I know the FE has interchangeable focus screens, but does the FM? I read some FM can replace screens without taking the top plate off, by unscrewing the screen holder inside the mirror box. Is this true? Finally does anyone know a website showing the available screens? Thanks.

Nikon F2 with MD-2/MB-1 question

16 March 2021 - 11:45 AM

My first roll of film through my F2 with motor was a 24 exp Fuji Delta 100 and I fired off 3 shots on load to bring it to 1. I then set the motor to 24. When I finished and rewound all the film was still on the right side, as the film got ripped off the cartridge on the last shot. What is a good SOP for shooting 24 and 36 exp rolls with the motor... Just wind 2 shots and set to 24? Or set motor to 23?7e4db42cf67dadb82a349b7fcbf374ac.jpg
