Question about Nikon FG 35mm SLR Camera
Hi, I was just wondering what type of battery I would need for my camera and where I might be able to buy one? Thank you!
Just a comment on the first answer: Use only silver oxide batteries (SR44). Using lithium batteries will not harm your camera but they have an unstable voltage, they start off a little over 1.5v and drift down to around 1.35v just before they no longer work. They are fine for non-precision equipment but not for your camera as they can cause the lightmeter to be as much as four stops out.
SR44's are at the correct 1.55v and remain at that level almost until the very end. They cost a bit more than lithium cells but are well worth the money, just make sure that the packaging actually says "silver oxide" as some manufacturers put the SR44 number on the packaging of LR44 lithium cells.

The Nikon FG is an analogue SLR camera, and they generally take batteries you could find in any camera store in the old days. If you can't find a battery in your camera store, try a store that has a lot of low cost batteries (typically stores for people who like to fix stuff). From a specifications page on this camera:
Two 1.55V silver-oxide batteries (S-76 or SR-44 type), two 1.5V alkaline-manganese batteries (LR-44 type) or one 3V lithium battery (CR-I 3N type)
