I used this Camera for my one shot 360 Virtual Tours in small rooms. It works very well, nice and light and easy to use. This camera has it's place on the market.
Great difference from the Nikon D600,

I bought this camera new in 1982 and have used it since. It has yet to let me down. It has always perfromed flawlessly. I don't recall the purchase price, but I have received a great return for the money. (read more)

Nikon FG is a great camera, it greatly improved my photography. i couldnt be happier with this camera. over all i would go with the FA it costs a bit more but it has more shutter speed, pc sync and depth of field preview. but for beginners, this is the best camera in the world no joke! (read more)

I have been using my Nikon FG along with 50/1.8 lens since 1993. Simply excellent.
Although it lacks some pro specs such as DOF preview,
( I managed to step down by partially removing the lens set to required F stop). & PC socket.
What could expect for this value.
I am really satisfied with this camera (read more)

I own two Nikon FG SLR cameras, and I have been through some very rough terrain with both (one loaded with the standard lens, and the other with a Vivitar 70-210 zoom lens), and have not had any problems with them at all. One was dropped from a considerable height and is still working like new, even though the Data Back has a bad marking on it. My only problem is that my eyesight is starting to fail, making it harder to focus than when I purchased them back in 1989. I like all the... (read more)

I just got a Nikon FG, given to me by my uncle, which used to be my grandfather's, along with a Soligor 80-200mm and a Hoya 52mm. I have read great reviews on this camera but one possibly small problem. When the exposure compensation dial is on the green A or red P, the shutter sticks closed when I take a picture, but if I turn the dial to the b, it opens. If the dial is on the b when taking a picture it doesnt stick.
I need someone to tell me if it does this because it is broken or is... (read more)

The FG dates from 1980 and was Nikon's attempt to market an entry-level manual focus electronic camera with more features than the Nikon EM. Like the FA, Nikon did not pursue the development line of this camera after the 1980s, so it is not the basis for the FM3a. The FG was an outgrowth of the bottom-level Nikon EM electronic camera, with an additional program mode for inexperienced camera users that sets aperture/shutter speed. Unfortunately the extra electronics and computer required... (read more)

I have owned my FG for over 20 years and it has never given me a problem. I have literally dragged it through the deserts of Israel and Saudi Arabia, on helicopters, in Norway winters, and the jungles of South East Asia, and in rain, sleet, snow, hail, and sandstorms and it has yet to let me down. Rugged, light weight, forgivable, and, most importantly, takes great pictures. I love the 28mm and 50mm Nikon E lenses, and also use a old Tamron 80-200 (could be better), and a great Sigma...

This camera did everything I asked of it, whether daylight, indoor or night, long exposures, action capture or just fun pics. I used to take this camera everywhere with me and had many years of plearsue from it, I am hoping now to purchase one second hand. Like a puppy the nikon FG is for life. I have now learned my lesson.

This little marvel, is a true Nikon manual camera. Don't let the size fool you, the FG stands on its own against the top of the line manual cameras, made by Nikon. This is the foundation for the new Nikon FM3A, manual camera. TTL, and OTL metering, the first, for Nikon. Hey, when the batteries are dying on ya, you can just switch over to the M90, setting, and the camera will work. M90, and the B settings are mechanically operating, so you bypass the dead batteries, and continue shooting. Hey... (read more)
