“I bought my Nikon FG20 35mm SLR camera in 1993 with my...”

I bought my Nikon FG20 35mm SLR camera in 1993 with my high school graduation loot, when it was already 11 years old. It has served me well all this time and I wouldn't trade it for the world. It's durabilty has survived falling off rocks hiking in the mountains (I broke 3 fingers), hell once I fell off an ocean jetty (yes I stuck the camera in the air so it wouldn't get wet). I often take my FG20 with me to get shots that I couldn't otherwise get with my Mamiya Pro TL… Read Full Review

I forgot to state that, if the batteries fail and the FG-20's shutter dial is set to anything other than M90 or B, the camera defaults to a 1/1000sec mechanical shutter speed. Thus, the FG-20 has 3 mechanical speeds, B, 1/90 & 1/1000. Nikon don't state this feature, but it is there (the Nikon EM also has this feature).
