“The FG dates from 1980 and was Nikon's attempt to...”

Written on: 22/06/2003 by Gus Michelson. (1 review written)

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.

<br>No AE lock
<br>Non-interchangeable focus screen
<br>No DOF preview lever"

<br>This is a classic SLR.

I think your review of the FG is at best, an arms length compilation of the tech specs rather than your personal use of the camera. Yes, the FG was Nikons entry level and to that it performs as marketed.. even better. I have used it since 1982 and that little guy won't die. As for the lack of DOF, one has to take into consideration Nikon's reasoning for the existance of the FG; ease of use, P mode...just focus and shoot!! That was the true selling point of the FG back then (along with its size). So for the person getting into slr photography, not wanting to spend a lot and getting a Nikon, the FG was a great choice.
