In this issue, we will take a look at the shutter speed dial on Nikon’s 1978 manual focus film SLR camera.

Nikon FE (Reference product)

It will be a film SLR camera with a steel silver body with black pasted leather, released in 1978.

The shutter speed dial is located next to the shutter release button.

The shutter speed can be selected between auto and manual with a knob dial in the shape of a disk. 8 to 1 second is indicated in orange color, 2 to 1/1000 second in white color, B (for open shutter release), M90 (emergency shutter speed setting in case of battery failure, etc.). The green letters in the AUTO column indicate the auto setting.

To select the shutter speed in manual, turn the dial while pressing the silver-plated button in the center.

The side side of the dial has a two-tiered vertical knurled design.

In this article, we introduced the shutter speed dial of Nikon’s 1978 release manual focus SLR camera.

This model has a manual shutter release setting in case the shutter does not shut off when the battery runs out, etc. This is a very useful and helpful camera that can be very helpful in an emergency.

Again, we were able to discover the unique characteristics of the manufacturer!

We hope to introduce various shutter speed dials in the future, so please look forward to it!

Thank you again for reading this column.
