Nikon was in need of a replacement model for its EL type cameras. The Nikon FE was introduced as a semi-professional or ‘prosumer’ camera. The features this camera boasts where very modern for its age and these cameras where known to be extremely durable. The durability made this camera very popular for professionals as well as amateur consumers. The Nikon FE is know to be operable at extremely cold temperatures and very damp conditions. Furthermore the compact design makes it easy to carry around.
The Nikkor 50mm F/1.4 lens that is equipped on this model is very fast and has great sharpness. Optically and cosmetically the lens is in excellent condition and is best used for portraits and general street shooting. Because of its build and image quality this camera is great for the more experienced photographer. However, the camera is easy to use due to its simple lay-out and therefore also an excellent body for the beginner film photographer. The semi-automatic mode enables the user to set the aperture the camera chooses the shutter speed. This takes another thing away from the shooter to think about making the process of shooting much more enjoyable.
