Modern Classic SLRs Series :
Various Nikon camera models - Message Board/Gu

Since with the inception of Nippon Kogaku until the current Nikon Corporation - they were probably hundreds of camera models as well as million of Nikkor optics being sold thus far. It is very hard to satisfy everyone intention when each surfer coming to this Pictorial History Website (first created since 1997). Over the last few years, I have constructed quite a number of sites featuring a selective Nikon camera models (Nikon F(based on Mike Liu's previous effort, the Nikon F2 series, F3 Series, Nikon F4, NIkon F5, the digital SLR series as well as the midrange models such as Nikon FM series, FA, FE series, Nikkormat/Nikomat and the compact EM/FG/FG20 etc..). Each of these featured model has their respective Message Board to support specific owner of each camera types. However, there are a number of very good Nikon SLRs (as well as the film and/or Digital compacts wer quite exciting too. But due to various reasons, I cannot featured them one by one. This Message Board was created just for that purpose - to provide a gateway for those that were not being featured. You may use it for whatever you think suitable - questions & answers (Q&A) or just make good use of it to share experience among one another. The use of this section of the photography SITE is not confined soly for this purpose, you may also make use of it for other photographic matters. Some of the remarks presented within the pictorial history site was entirely personal and I do not wish to influence any decision prior to any potential purchases or disposal of your equipment. You may make use of this convenience here to present your own views as well. Enjoy.

Hi Jeanette: To begin with, I am not very familiar with the Nikon
N65 (I'm much too old-fashioned for autofocus), so you may have to bear with me a bit.

You're on the right track with your thinking: the camera's automatic settings are the result of the reading taken by the light meter in the camera. When you then switch to Manual, you can choose to either follow those same settings or to change them to suit your needs.

The problem comes up when the automatic flash pops up: now, the settings are NOT the result of the meter readings, but rather of the light output of the flash and your distance from the subject, and they are only valid if you use the flash.

You should have another option though: if you set the camera to Manual, the meter should still be working. Not having an N65, I'm not sure what the meter display looks like in the manual mode but I would thnk it will be in LCD display. In the case some many other cameras, there might be a + and - emblem with either a bar or a needle-like indicator, or maybe the + and - marks just appear and disappear in changing light? You should be able to see this indicator change as you manually adjust the aperture and shutter speed of the camera; when the indicator is balanced between the + and the -, you have what the camera's meter thinks is the correct combination of settings (indoors, I would set the lens wide open and adjust only the shutter speed for this). In Manual mode, the pop-up flash shouls stay down and not interfere with proper meter operation.

There should be information in your user's manual to help identify and read the meter indicators. In case you dont have a instruction manual for the Nikon N65. go to this page and download a PDF copy of the user's manual:

I hope this helps. Rick.

Hope you can help --I have some extra time on my hands now due to Hurricane Katrina and have been reading this info (MIR - Photography - The Resource Page, what is shutter speed? What is aperture? etc.) Although I have gone over it before many times over, even in textbooks on photography that I have checked out of the library, I feel that this write-up on exposure does an excellent job of explaining the interaction of shutter speed and aperture, and I think I understand it (at least on an elementary level). So, here goes my question--It is stated in the exposure chapter that "virtually all modern cameras have reflective photo cells built in to give you a indication of a recommended proper exposure". You can either trust this meter reading or override it. My camera is a Nikon N65, and, on top of being inexperienced, I'm stupid. So, that being said, would you please explain where would I find my readings--would it be the readings I would get if I set the camera on automatic, and then switch to manual, or is there some simple device that I am overlooking? Using the readings from the automatic setting and then switching to manual works fine outdoors, but the problem indoors is, in the automatic mode, the flash pops up and so you get a reading that (I think) compensates for the light emitted from the flash. In the manual mode indoors, If you use the aperture suggested in automatic mode, it seems you have to use a ridiculously slow shutter speed for the electronic analog thingy (technical term) to balance. For example, if the automatic reading is 60; F 5.3, in manual I get 8; F5.3. I was told by someone that if I use a flash, I can choose my aperture (say, 5.6) and then choose a decent shutter speed (90) and then not care whether the thingy shows balance.

Is this correct? I have experimented, but don't have my results back. I honestly want to progress from being frightened all the time and just using automatic, so any suggestions from you will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help, Jeanette, US.

Hi I have a Nikon FG and am looking to add more lenses to my collection. However, I am confused as to wether or not, I can use AIS lenses. I know all AI lenses can be used. Your input will be appreciated. Dave

Ken Aptekar : just click on the header image will lead you to the main site. Click on MF/AF Nikon SLRs, select page 1984-1986. There is a link to ask by mail or download the instruction manual by clicking on the icon for your Nikon F301 (also called Nikon N2000).
