  • Excerpt: "...of shooting with an autofocus Nikon F60, I wanted to get back to full control using my excellent manual focus Nikon prime lenses. I had a Nikon FE for many years, but its auto-exposure capabilities had broken. I was very sad to see that old friend start to decline. While the FE continued to have accurate shutter speeds, I didn't want to carry around a separate light meter or guess at exposure using the "sunny 16" rule. I picked up an F-301/N2000 ...
  • Pros: Power winder, program modes, very intuitive if you grew up on older Nikons
  • Cons: No stop - down preview mode

  • Excerpt: "Abosolutely great camera. I got one of these three years ago and it was the first SLR I had owned. Upgrading to an F55 soon but I still love this camera. Brilliant picture quality, and a lovely noise when the shutter closes! I've taken this camera to Tunisia, France, Cornwall, Spain and New York and in every situation it has produced some fantastic photos. I have had a 28-200mm vivitar lens with this since I got it with a skylight and it has survived ...
  • Pros: Ease of use, picture quality, automatic roll - on
  • Cons: Maybe a bit heavy

Nikon's first polycarbonate SLR

sillycong..., Ciao
27 November 2005
  • Excerpt: "...1985, I first saw the Nikon F301 and fell in love. £250 with 50mm lens was the right price for this camera. No LCD display was apparent, but this was good for me as I upgraded from a Nikon FG20. The F-301 was the first Nikon to have a polycarbonate chassis, and to have a built-in motorwind (2.5 fps). Shutter speeds from 30 secs - 1/2000th sec (in any auto mode), 1 sec - 1/2000th sec (in manual mode) + B, flash sync is 1/125th sec. The camera features ...
  • Pros: 2 . 5 FPs motor wind, TTL flash metering, DX decoding
  • Cons: Manual film rewind, AAA batteries as standard, offset tripod mount

  • Excerpt: "...I went Autofocus (Canon then Nikon F90x) this was the camera for me. I don't know if its just me but I have not been able to capture the same brilliant 3D type of image this camera gave me with all my other cameras. Maybe it is just me..I was into photography in a big way back then and had more time and patience to get it right, fiddling with the settings. (before I got lazy and just let the camera do the lot!) But I am tempted to buy another ...

  • Conclusion: Att använda: 5 Hållbarhet: 4 Min första Nikon inköpt 1985 i paket med ett 50mm f1.8 objektiv. (Sedan var jag fast i systemet). En fin pålitlig kamera som känndes modern och tog bra bilder. Förpassades till andra kamera när jag köpte min FE2 trotts fler finesser som inbyggd motor och programautomatik. Valde mellan Canon T70 som styrdes av knappar och Nikon F301 med traditionell ratt. Senare visade sig valet vara extra rätt när Canon bytte bajonett.
  • Pros: En bra modern kamera på sin tid som tog fina bilder. Använder 4st std. AAA batterier. Första Nikon med inbyggd motor som klarade 2,5bilder per s.
  • Cons: Saknade knapp att blända ner objektivet för skärpedjupskontroll. Är heldöd utan batteri (som alla nya kameror). Inte lika robust som FE2 ;-)

  • Conclusion: Kan du leve uten lukkerstyrt AE, AF og Matrix lysmåling, får du i dette huset omtrent alt Nikon byr på av finesser i konsumentkameraer de siste 15 årene i en slitesterk og lettbetjent pakke. Lett å få tak i på bruktmarkedet.
  • Pros: Det aller første kameraet fra Nikon med innebygd motor (2,5 bps) og uten sveiv, men likevel lite og kompakt, selv etter dagens standard. Robust og driftssikkert gjennom mange år. Mitt eksemplar er brukt flittig i nesten 20 år og har aldri feilet. Bruker lite batterier, og du kan bruke både AA-batterier og AAA-batterier. Første Nikon-kamera med DX-kodelesning. Elektronisk lukker med tider ned til 1/2000 sek. Blenderprioritert AE, full manuell og Program AE (Hi Speed og...
  • Cons: Ingen nedblendingsknapp for kontroll av dybdeskarphet. Batteriavhengig.

Ein weiteres Nikon-Sprachtstück

michlax, Ciao

  • Summary: Ich habe mir diese Nikon zu meiner F-101 da ich neben einer Kamera, in der ich Papierbilder habe auch eine haben wollte, mit der ich Dias fotografieren kann, ohne permanent Filme zu tauschen. Es ist eine Spiegelreflexkamera, die nicht denjenigen zusagen wird, die wollen das ihre Kamera alles alleine Macht, sie hat zwar eine Belichtungsautomatik, aber sie hat z.B. keine Schärfeautomatik, was ich aber bewusst nich haben wollte, da ich für Urlaubsfotos, ect.
  • Pros: wahnsinnig gute bilder  - > nikon halt
  • Cons: keine automatische schärfeeinstellung

  • Summary: Hallo zusammen, als Hobby-Fotograf würde ich mich nicht gerade bezeichnen, eher als Gelegenheitsfotograf. Vor etwa vierzehn Jahren habe ich mir meine erste gute Kamera gekauft – eine Nikon F-301. Davor habe ich mit diesen rechteckigen Kodak Apparaten meine ersten Bilder geschossen. Ich habe mal eben nachgemessen, damals war das Format noch 8,5 x 9 cm. Gibt es das Format heute überhaupt noch?
  • Pros: Viele Möglichkeiten, Zuverlässig, robust
  • Cons: Kein Autofokus

  • Summary: Ich war ziemlich erstaunt, als ich kürzlich im Schaufenster eines hiesigen Fotoladens eine gebrauchte Nikon F-301 sah. Und noch erstaunter war ich, als ich den Preis sah. Ich habe diese Kamera 1986 vom Geld meines ersten Ferienjobs gekauft. Deshalb und seitdem war sie immer meine Lieblingskamera. Die Preise für das Gehäuse mit einem Standardobjektiv liegen zur Zeit je nach Zustand zwischen 300 und 500 Mark.
  • Pros: Preisgünstig und handwerklich !
  • Cons: Keine moderne AF - Kamera und ich finde den Beitrag sehr trocken .
