Bad Points

General Comments
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 with those top of the line manual Nkon SLRs, when u dead, u dead. But, not with this baby. It is a "little dynamo". The synch speed is 1/90. Match it up with a Nikon speedlite, or my choice, a Vivitar 550FD, some nice lenses, whether Nikon,or not. Hey inside note.....these other lense makers are catching up. Tokina, Tamron, Sigma, etc. Try one out. Quality glass. Many can be found on the used market in excellent condition. But this is a quality Nikon manual SLR. It eats its little bro, the FG-20 for lunch. Give this little dynamo a look. They are easy to find on, Quality stuff.
