Description

Canon FE2 35mm Film Camera Professionally Tested Kit with Neck Strap, Cable Release, Photo Log, Film Travel Case, Lens Cleaner & Wipes

Comes with battery installed.

The Nikon FE2 was a 35mm SLR from Nikon launched in 1983 as the successor to the Nikon FE. It was manufactured until 1987. Two main models existed, an entirely black one and one featuring a silver top and bottom plate. In 2001, Nikon launched the Nikon FM3A as the successor to this camera as well as the Nikon FM2. Unlike the Nikon FE, the Nikon FE2 cannot use non-Ai Nikkor lenses because the Ai prong cannot be flipped up. Most Ai-type Nikkor lenses, as well as Autofocus Nikkors up to, but not including the "G" series of lenses, will work with the Nikon FE2. An improvement over the previous model was the use of a silicon photo diode light meter. The viewfinder information also got an update with a dedicated LED (+/-) when exposure correction is switched on.

Features:

The Nikon FE2 was the first focal-plane shutter camera to feature a maximum flash sync speed of 1/250th of a second. This is possible because of the advanced Titanium shutter, with speeds from 8 seconds to 1/4000th of a second (actually in "A" mode the FE2 can expose much longer than 8 seconds). The film speed needs to be set manually using the wheel on the top left of the camera as the DX-system is not supported. Similar to most Nikon models from the period, the FE2 features the 60/40 integral metering system. Initially Nikon planned to use the new matrix system, which was then under development in the FE2, but it was not ready on time and therefore was first installed on the Nikon FA. The Nikon FE2 has only a few bells and whistles, but it is extremely well built and therefore still sought after today (2010) by users. Just two features; which are both related to the self-timer lever; are the only ones, which are not immediately obvious. Pushing the lever towards the lens functions as the AE exposure lock. If the self timer is enabled (which when fully engaged takes 10 seconds to release the shutter), the mirror flips up immediately after pushing the shutter button, thus minimizing vibration during the exposure. The FE2 is equipped with TTL OTF flash. Most Nikon flashes with TTL capability are supported, with the notable exception of the Nikon SB-900, which is only capable of iTTL OTF functionality. The only 35 mm film camera, which supports iTTL OTF is the Nikon F6. Being an "automatic" camera, the Nikon FE2 is equipped with an exposure compensation wheel, which allows compensation from EV -2 to EV +2. The shutter of the Nikon FE2 is electronically controlled. In case of battery failure the 1/250th of a second shutter speed can be used in mechanical mode.
