Assuming there is no debilitating damage to mechanical parts (steel parts rusted until broken or seized or similar): A camera of that age at least won't have a big multilayer PCB - as long as the legs of hard to replace electronic components have not corroded off completely, and no integrated circuits or actuator coils have burnt out due to shorts (not ...

These cameras were designed for a 1.3v mercury battery. Wein makes a MRB625 replacement. They are available from B&H online. I use one and it works great in my FT QL.

Any kind of focus tracking ("AI focus" and the like) requires the camera to refocus between shots, and focusing requires the lens to be fully open. Also, you can use your DoF test button with aperture set to something small (f/16..) to see how the image looks like when the diaphragm is closed, and you will observe that this is a lot dimmer than what you ...

I tested my cheap Canon EOS 2000D with a really slow burst mode, with continuous shooting & servo AF. First, I selected aperture f/5.6. Then, I started shooting. The viewfinder was bright between the shots. Then, I selected aperture f/22 and started shooting. The viewfinder was still equally bright, no change from f/5.6. Thus, I assume this camera ...

For an SLR, moving the aperture blades will be a lot less effort than moving the mirror. So I doubt that there is a universal answer independent of camera model.

If the mirror moves between shots, the aperture probably moves as well. As you note, this would keep the viewfinder bright between shots. It's also possible they are mechanically connected, especially in older film cameras that use an aperture-control lever. Canon T-series and Minolta Maxxum SLRs move both the mirror and aperture between shots. FujiFilm X-...

Your question looks straightforward but it is not so easy, indeed ! Ken Rockwell’s overview is quite exhaustive. Basically, AF-S and AF-I would be a good match for both your FE10 and your D5600. Most if not all AF-I are telezoom/telephoto. Furthermore, no AF-S with E, no AF-S with G of course would match your needs as they have no aperture ring. For ...

A full list of Nikon lenses which can auto-focus with the D5x00 line is available on Wikipedia at List of Nikon F-mount lenses with integrated autofocus motor. The lenses with an aperture ring are those without a G in their designation. So, for example, the first suitable lens in the list, under wide-angle primes, is the AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED.

Yeah, it may be a battery compartment cleaning who is necessary. However, it may also be an electronic problem. I'm not a specialist, so I advise you to send the camera to a repair shop instead of trying to repair that yourself, unless you're used to or you know about disassembly of cameras.

This camera has an electronically-controlled shutter, with a manual fallback to 1/90th of a second. See Why does my Nikon FE occasionally fire at ¹⁄₉₀th regardless of setting?. It seems likely that with meter working only intermittently, the shutter is also erratic — possibly giving 1/90th, or possibly random values. Replacing the batteries and ...
