Written on: 10/10/2002 by wolfgang. (1 review written)

This venerable workhorse has produced so many award winning photographs throughout history and is still capable of doing so today. I recently photographed a shuttle launch with my nikon f and the person next to me was using the latest automatic exposure af cannon camera. They had respectable snapshots, i won 1st place in a photo contest with my picture. There was a rainbow and a moon with the smoke trail. The autoexposure af camera was unable to capture the rainbow and i think that best states… Read Full Review

“Perhaps the most recognized cameras of the late 1950's...”

Written on: 21/06/2002 by Moderntech. (1 review written)

Perhaps the most recognized cameras of the late 1950's through the 1960's, the Nikon F 35mm SLR camera was the 'King of the Photojournalists.' The cameras were well made had tons of interchangeable backs, prisms, focusing screens and of course those superb Nikon lenses. Early models (C.1959) had standard non-metered eye level finders. There were 4 metered prisms added: the Photomic in 1962, the Photomic T in 1965, the Photomic Tn in 1967 and the classic Photomic FTn in 1968. Although I have had… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/04/2001 by Thomas Tseng. (1 review written)

This camera is a good choice for photo beginners for it's relatively low price (for a used one), 100% view finder area, and fully manual overide on all functions. It will make a beginner know more about photography basics than later AF cameras. Compare to the current Nikon FM2n, it is still a very good choice on budgetwise… Read Full Review

The Nikon F is a true classic, one of the great cameras of history. The review makes it sound like cheap old clunker that alright for beginners and that about all. What a lot of rot!!!

The NIKON F is not a beginner's camera, it is a Professional tool. Higher shutter speeds, fancy gimmicks and all the other things found on today's "top" SLR's are for camera-clowns who do not know how to create images. This review seems to be written by someone who has lots to learn about the fundamental nature of photography. Maybe they should stay with a "modern full-featured" camera for a while.

I can't agree with this review.
<br>I have Nikon F; it's a great body, best 35mm SLR of its time.
<br>This camera started a new age of professional photography in late 50's. Actually this camera is the main reason of today’s SLR popularity.
<br>This camera made Nikon F series to be a symbol of professional photography for many years. It can't be underestimated.

Written on: 08/06/2003

Hate to say it but the review is correct. But,,,,
<br>I own five nikon f's, and use them all the time and will not use any other camera. Have been using them since purchased new so don't know any other camera, the camera is part of me. New people in photography should buy the current cameras and learn to use them as I have the old nikon. The lack of light meter in the camera don't mean anything to me, don't need one, but I did need a light meter to get used to the film when I got started, still have it, just in case.
<br>Enjoy photography and create pictures and use whatever feels good to you. Most current cameras are all good. You make the photo, not the camera.

Unfortunatly this review does little to reveal the beauty of total manual and creative control 35mm photography. Many people have become dependent on technology to do for them what users of the nikon f must do for themselves but in doing such, they retain creative control if they know how to use the equipment.

Even though I am not a Nikon fan, I can appreciate the Nikon F's place in photographic history, its brick-like build and sensible features. This review does none of these qualities any justice. SOMEONE with experience of this camera PLEASE write in with an EDUCATED review of this classic camera to lift its shameful average rating up from 4!

Written on: 17/02/2002

I own a Nikon F (made 1969) - it's a precise and reliable tool, both optically and mechanically. I use it daily and it works everywhere and the results are far far better then those of any compact or digital (!) camera on market today. The review is roughly underestimating!
