Thread: Your FAVORITE Nikon Film SLR and why?

    In the late 90s/ early 2000s, read that some companies are developing digital sensors for SLRs, to fit into the film cavity, and also digital backing, I was really enthusiastic about it. But after awhile, the heat seemed to have died down and did not notice anyone with significant interest in improving that few initial startups.......... Poof! there goes my dream of a DF3HP.....
    What I really missed most, is my first SLR. An Olympus OM2 with the Zuiko 35mm f/1.4, back in 1982!

    I would have called it F3D, afterall if it happens it's digital guts are grafted. Mine would be FE2D.

    Is the H1 focusing screen the same as U red dot? Am thinking of buying it.
    Thanks.

    The downsides for me is that the K screen could be a bit brighter ...

    F5 and F100

    I like autofocus, works better and faster than my eyes at f/1.4

    The older manual focus models are great too but the whole point for small format is speed, so if I wanna manual focus and manual everything i move up to medium format with bigger view finders.

    So the F5 and F100 for me.

    F3HP = Buttery smooth crank, good to have WLFinder, Aperture Priority, excellent built.
    F100= Super quick, excellent viewfinder, external grip, long battery life, excellent built.

    Best of all, they both can use AIS lens and AF lens. The F100 can even take AFS G lens! Way to go Nikon!

    I love the way a manual camera being able to move up / down several stops of the shutter speed or aperture with a quick twist between 2 fingers at a only fraction of a second.... with the AFs and DSLR, having to half depress the shutter button, before clicking step by step up/down is really far too slow and a pain!

    My favourite Nikon has to be either the F3 or the F100 or both. Relatively compact, sturdy, joy to use. I still have my first Nikon, a Nikkormat FTn bought after my Sec 4. Favourite lenses are the 20mm f2.8 AiS, 180 f2.8ED, 80-200 AFS.

    Mine has got to be the F-601m. You get good autoexposure(full PSAM), including Matrix metering with the latest lenses, but you get a nice manual focus traditional viewfinder (w/split image and microprism) for manual focusing. This has got to be the oddest camera Nikon ever produced, but I'm glad they did it. My only complain is the film advance motor is a bit slow and noisy.
