Description

The Nikon FE is an advanced semi-professional level, interchangeable lens, (SLR) body. It was manufactured by from 1978 to 1983, and was available new from dealer stock until circa 1984. The FE uses a metal-bladed, vertical travel focal plane shutter with a speed range of 8 to 1/1000 second, plus Bulb, and flash X-sync of 1/125th second. It had dimensions of 89.5 millimetres (3.52 in) height, 142 mm (5.6 in) width, 57.5 mm (2.26 in) depth and 590 grams (21 oz) weight. It was available in two finishes: black with chrome trim and the rarer all black. As on the FM, its model designation did not appear on the front of the camera, but was engraved as a small “FE” preceding the serial number on the rear of the housing.

The FE was the replacement for Nikon EL2 of 1977 and was a member of the classic Nikon compact F-series. It used a rugged copper aluminium alloy chassis developed from the one introduced in the Nikon FM in 1977, with minor external controls and cosmetic differences.

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
