Back in 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...

After years 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...

ContraNot very ergonomic grip

I know you cannot buy these cameras new any longer, but I would strongly recommend it to anyone entering amateur photography. It is a fairly basic camera, which can be rather demanding if you really know what you are doing. The best thing about this camera is that it can help the beginners by...
