Description:

Designed with a penchant for speed, the EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Camera from Canon is characterized by its APS-C-sized 20.2MP CMOS sensor, dual DIGIC 6 image processors, and a top continuous shooting rate of 10 fps. Both a 65-point all cross-type phase-detection AF system and Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology benefit fast, accurate focusing performance for both optical viewfinder and live view shooting. Additionally, the combination of the dual image processors along with the CMOS sensor also contribute to enhanced low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 16000, which is further expandable to ISO 51200. The 7D Mark II comfortably performs in a range of challenging situations, and while ideally situated as a tool for sports and wildlife photographers, it resides equally as well in the hands of contemporary multimedia image-makers.
Complementing the 7D Mark II’s still imaging assets, support for recording full HD 1080p video is available, in multiple frame rates up to 60 fps. Beyond saving to internal memory cards, uncompressed video can also be recorded to optional external recorders via an HDMI connection. Custom Movie Servo AF, which is aided by the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, serves to highlight movie recording abilities by enabling controllable speed and sensitivity settings for continuous focusing with moving subjects.
Housing the robust set of imaging capabilities is an equally robust dust and weather-sealed magnesium alloy body, which contains a durable shutter mechanism tested for up to 200,000 actuations. A fixed 3.0″ 1.04m-dot Clear View II LCD screen is incorporated into the design, along with a bright Intelligent Viewfinder II optical finder, for versatile monitoring and playback abilities. Customizable buttons are placed about the body for personalized control over different settings and a built-in GPS module automatically embeds location data into files for geotagging images when shooting.
The EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens is included along with the camera body to serve as a versatile everyday lens that encompasses a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28.8-216mm. The STM stepping motor helps to achieve near-silent focusing when used in conjunction with the Movie Servo AF mode and the optical image stabilization system helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake.

    Nikon FE Film Camera

    The Nikon FE film camera was the autoexposure twin of the Nikon FM, which was the manual exposure model. I used to sell this camera back in the heyday of the film SLR, though I haven't owned one in years. However, briefly stated, the Nikon FM/FE twins had the same body with the same AI lens mount and the same basic shutter.The shutter itself was a metal vertical travel design with speeds from 1/1-1/1000 sec plus bulb. The meter was a centerweighted averaging design, with exposure compensation of +-two f/stops. ASA settings ran from 12-4000 and both the ASA and exposure compensation were set on the left side exposure dial, just below the rewind crank. The FE differed from the FM only in that it offered aperture priority auto exposure operation: aperture priority being you select the lens aperture, the camera selects the shutter speed. Finally, they were able to mount any Nikon F series lens made, though the older ones had to be modified by Nikon to work with the metering system. Other accessories for the FM/FE included the MD-11/12 3fps motordrive and a series of Nikon flash units which set the camera shutter speed.
    The FM/FE series were marketed as the mid priced compact Nikons of their day,placed below the F2 and F3 professional cameras and the Nikon EM amatuer model. Their competition was the Canon A series,(A-1, AE-1 etc) the Pentax ME/MX and the Olympus OM-series cameras. A new FM/FE had that nice high quality glow that came with a well made camera. They were handsome beasts, but though well made, they still appealed more to your aspiring Nikon owner than the general public, mainly because they were priced about 1/4 to 1/3 higher than, say, a Canon AE-1. Aside from that, the FM/FE series suffer from two design features that I personally did not like.
    The first was the external meter coupling ring, a feature Nikon borrowed from Minolta. Now, 98 percent of the time this was no trouble, unless you took the camera to the beach and got it near sand. External coupling rings by anyone were always vulnerable to dirt and sand getting behind the ring and messing things up. Usually a good cleaning was all that was required, but while Canon, Pentax and Olympus made sure all their lenses connected inside the lens mount, Nikon (and Minolta's ) external coupling ring was a true disadvantage.
    The second item,which applies to the FE itself, was aperture priority auto exposure itself. Granted, most camera manufacturers used it,Canon and Konica excepting. Now a knowledgeable photographer could use aperture priority just fine. Indeed the stepless shutters often engineered into these cameras was a great help, especially with finicky slide films. But, many an amateur would by a Nikon FE, try to take pictures indoors without a flash, then complain about blurry pictures. Why? They never paid attention to the meter needle which no doubt indicated a shutter speed way too low for hand held photography. That's why. (And some of them would never learn.)
    Now, would I recommend one. Well, overall, a Nikon FE is a fine camera, but it's also nearly forty some years old. The main problem with cameras that old from everyone is parts and repair. Fortunately it uses MS76 cells so a working model can still be used. However, before you buy, I'd look up the Nikon FE on Stephen Gandy's Cameraquest. He knows Nikons and if you can get one in good condition, with a good Nikkor lens, get some film and enjoy.

    Nikon FE review

    The Nikon FE is noted as one of the most exceptional SLR film cameras ever made. recently, I've picked a few of them up from ebay with an aim to bid for lower priced single units ( $50) or kits with additional lens, etc. ( $200). The item in this display fit under the later category and was worth the investment. Initially, I needed to replace to batteries in the camera to brand new ones (Energizer 375), then, all functions worked very nicely. In fact, 90% of the Nikon FEs that I have obtained have required new batteries for the meter and AUTO functions to work. Only in one case have I received a camera advertised as fully working in which the meter still doesn't work.

    The unit in the title is pretty cool because it came with additional focusing screens and the Soligor telephoto lens works nicely.

    For more info about the Nikon FE, please see Ken Rockwell's web-site, noting, that batteries don't seem to hold-up as well as he suggests and problems with the light meter are not discussed.

    One last thing is that this is a pretty cool camera and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it's look and to me it is a pleasure to use.

    Excellent Choice for Film Shooter Seeking Nikon Quality

    If you shoot film, you have few options for new equipment. Buying used, original build quality is a key consideration given that you may be looking at a 30 or 40 year old camera. Choosing a respected brand like Nikon, Canon, Pentax or Minolta means that you're getting a camera that was built to last in the first place, but also means that you are able find someone to fix it should you have problems. The reality is, though, that it's often cheaper to just buy another if it breaks.

    A few Nikons are considered "classics" and are therefore collectible, with prices to match. Some models are "hot" at one time or another because someone on the web has talked them up. This was the case for the Nikon FE, which was subject of a rave review by a well-known photography web site. Here's the real story: the FE is an important piece of Nikon history, and belongs in your collection if you are a Nikon collector. It's also a capable camera if you want a mostly manual body to use with your Nikkor lenses. It's solidly built, reliable, relatively easy to repair, and takes a standard battery. It's comparable to an F3, Nikon's flagship pro camera for many years, for most users. In fact, it actually has some advantages over the F3, including faster flash synch speeds and it's smaller and lighter. But it was intended as an amateur camera, so it doesn't have quite the build quality. The aperture-preferred auto-exposure is similar to the F3's as well, so the shooting experience is comparable. It has a similar line of accessories available, including motor drives, and takes standard flash units without an (expensive) adapter, unlike the F3.

    But you will be getting a 30+ year old camera, so why would you bother? Here are some pros and cons (I assume that you want to shoot film, and want a manual-focus camera, so those are off the list):

    Pros:
    Cheap and plentiful
    Many repairs easily performed
    Works with AI/AIS/AF lenses (except AF-G)
    Works with pre-AI lenses in stop-down metering mode (FE2 doesn't)
    reliable vertical-travel metal shutter, with electronic timing
    1/125 flash sync speed (F3 is 1/80)
    compact size, relatively light weight
    auto-exposure (aperture preferred, same as F3)
    DOF preview
    single manual speed if battery dies
    standard, commonly available battery
    meters ISO 12-3200

    Cons:
    old
    parts may be unavailable for some repairs
    top shutter speed 1/1000 (F3 is 1/2000, FE2 is 1/4000)
    no TTL flash
    single auto-exposure mode (no shutter-preferred or program)
    no matrix or spot metering
    no mirror lock-up (useful for macro work)
    no quick/auto film load

    If you are looking for a manual-focus camera that offers auto-exposure along with exceptional build quality, and don't mind the limitations noted, look for a good FE. Keep in mind that there are many other options, including the FE2, FG, F3 and FA, each with their own pluses and minuses. Outside of that range, the FM/FM2 are similar but fully mechanical, using the battery only for the meter, while the N2000 with it's built-in motor drive and multiple auto-exposure modes offers the most automation in a manual focus Nikon.

    Many pros were thankful that Nikon offered these high-end "amateur" cameras at a significant cost savings over the pro models, and used them extensively as backups for their F-series bodies. That a few also used them as their primaries is a testament to their quality, as is the fact that so many of them are still in use.

    Nikon FE

    The Nikon FE or "F" Electronic, is a great camera, unlike its brother the FM the FE has interchangeable focusing screens. There are few differences that can clearly be seen when looking at both camera's side by side, they both have the same design and appearance. The FE is a Aperture Priority Electronic camera, which means it uses batteries and relies on them to function properly, although the FE does have a M90 mode or Manual 1/90 in which the camera can shoot at 1/90 second if the batteries are dead or missing. Aperture Priority is a camera based metering mode that meters your scene and selects the appropriate shutter speed to compliment the aperture opening you have selected. This is very useful in everyday situations, as you normally would come up with the same speed the camera did after moments more work. The Nikon meter inside the FE is one of the best ever made, it shares this similar quality with the FM and F2. Now down to brass tax.

    Shutter speed ranges from 1/1000 - 8 sec.(Along with M90 and Bulb)
    Blazing fast Electronic Flash Sync of 1/125th sec. (more than fast enough for most applications)

    The FE and FM were introduced with the MD-11 motor drive, although i would recommend the newer MD-12 as it is virtually the same with some small but big changes to electronics. Both MD-11 or MD-12 offer you Single frame advance or Continuous advance of 3.5fps

    The Nikon FE and FM (not FE2 or FM2/n) are compatible with all lenses made for the Nikon F systems, this means you can buy and use those great old Pre-Ai lenses and meter with them. For more details on this camera and function please do a quick google search (I recommend the MIR articles)

    I would really recommend either the FE or FM, they are great camera's they feel great with the MD-12 and you cant find a better bang for your $$ I use my FE as a back up for my F2 setup, in case my DP-1 head fails one day. Thanks for reading and Goodluck!

    I have owned Nikon film cameras for years and The FE model offers a lot of features. Is a great vintage film camera. Thanks.

    A classically-beautiful and well designed manual film camera

    I purchased my FE to compliment my FE2 so that I could keep color-film in one and black & white film in the other in order to get the same shots at the same time in both formats.
    The cameras work great overall and I appreciate the two-needle metering indicator through the view-finder: just match your shutter-speed with the aperture needle and your exposure is pretty well taken care of. There are also many accessories still available for the FE, FE2 and FM series, most of which are interchangeable and not very expensive at all.
    One quirk I notices in both models, is that the split-prism focus indicator has a tendency to darken or half-black out with slower lenses so you are best off with something f:2.8 or faster. A nice upgrade is the K-3 focus screen from the FM3a that will drop right in however on the FE, you will need to run it at +1/2 compensation. The fE2 does not require an adjustment. If you would like to know more about the Nikon Manual series cameras, I strongly recommend going to Ken Rockwell's website where he talks in depth about every model in the FE and FM group while posting a good cross-reference comparison chart so you can actually see all the features side by side. The ISO and Exposure compensation dial functions are reversed between the FE and FE2 and I find it easier to lift the adjusting ring on the FE as opposed to having to push a button on the FE2. One thing to look out for on the FE is that the light seals and mirror pad can decompose but they are fairly easy to replace and at least two eBay sellers offer the kits for doing so. If anyone doesn't already know, to lock the exposure on both mentioned cameras, just push the self timer lever toward the lens mount and it will lock the metering. The FE needle will continue to move so you just need to trust it where the FE2 lock the needle in place. These are really beautifully designed and very high quality cameras. ~ JerrySP1 in Sonoma County - 7-5-2015

    Excellent film camera.

    I had one before this one, and can't find it. The Nikon FE can use any Nikon Nikkor lens, except for the G lenses, and the ones that require the mirror to be locked up, and the ones for the mirrorless Nikon cameras. The DX lenses will have dark corners.

    As long as it is kept dry, it can take photos. It does use the small button batteries, but even if they die (after 2 or 3 years) the FE will soldier on as a mechanical camera at limited shutter speeds.

    Why I still use a film camera, especially Nikon FE2?

    I'm 54 years old and I live in Istanbul but travel extensively around the world. I started photography in 1970 as an amateur with a Pentax Spotmatic camera. Over the years my love of photography grew and slowly I started to build a name. By the end of this year, the number of my photography books will reach six - all of them full of black and white photographs. Although I use digital cameras still I shoot black and white film because film has a different flavor. Shooting digital may at times turn into what may look like shooting with a machine gun. With a DSLR, you may forget about planning and start shooting right away. What I like much about the Nikon FE2 is its small size and the small lenses, especially the primes. I may go unnoticed when doing street photography. I often use the A setting which allows me to concentrate on the picture and not on the exposure settings. I do not have and will not have a winder or a motor drive. I plan, wait and shoot. Believe me, this is the formula for good photography. I previously owned an FM but sold it when turning into digital. I regretted my decision and through e-bay I could buy one FE2 and one FM2, both in near mint conditions at very reasonable prices. I usually shoot with the FE2 and carry the FM2 in my pocket ready for situations I may need it. Sometimes I load a different type of film: May be 400 ASA or color slide. Because these cameras are small I carry them on my neck, shoulder or in my pocket. You can hardly do it with the EOS1 Ds Mark II, which I use for digital work. You may think that I am a full time professional photographer. No. I am working as a financial consultant and I'm only a weekend photographer. I wish you all fellow photographers days full of good photography. Stay light with Nikon FE and FM. Regards, Selim SevalRead full review...

    A sweet spot in Nikon history

    I love the FE for the following reasons:
    - it mounts and meters both Ai and pre Ai lenses
    - it has aperture priority automation, but also is a beautifully functional manual metering camera
    - the viewfinder presents all information in the best way - the Pentax KX is similar, both excellent
    - the early electronics -from many brands- have advantages over later designs, as they go 'over' limits gracefully. So for example you are able to get very long exposures, and probably even a shutter speed a bit faster than 1/1000.

    The camera purrs - that is, the frame advance is the silkiest, purriest one I've ever used. It is small-ish and light in weight, easy to use and look through. About the only complaint I have is the shutter/mirror sound isn't the quietest in the world.

    And these cameras have a well deserved reputation for being indestructible.

    Wonderful Old Camera

    I absolutely love the old style, old school cameras. They are typically all or mostly metal, many times heavier than their current plastic counter parts and most always have an internal mechanical operation that is nothing short of music to ones sense of touch and feel. If you ever get the chance to operate the FE's wind lever---it alone will sell you on old school. Learning how to deal with the "dreaded three": shutter speed, aperture & ISO will become intoxicating (if I can, anyone can). There is nothing wrong with DSLR, I love the two I have. I have a much better appreciation for photography using old school cameras. The internet is full of information on cameras, basic photography and blogs that answer all sorts of questions...e-bay is full of old school film cameras & accessories, if you don't want to take a chance, buy one with a warranty. Accept that there will be little annoyances (dust, dirt, scratches, dents, the possible need to replace mirror bumpers/light seals, the real possibility that a "no warranty purchase" may get you a completely useless piece of junk. I now own several Nikon, Canon & Pentax cameras (all old school) and would not trade a single one, even the junkers (two so far)...the learning experience -- priceless. If you like the feel of precision craftsmanship, try out an old school camera. God bless & have a wonderful day.Read full review...
