      I’ve been using the F65 for about seven months now and I’m pretty happy with it.

      To me, the most important opinion of the people are critics of product defects, so I’ll start there.

      -Batteries This is a weak point of this camera. CR2 lithium batteries used instead of normal batteries. Use two at a time and each costs a lot. They last relatively little for the money, about 10 reels with a flash light use. At this price, a cost which must be added the cost of mandatory reel disclosed.

      In addition to the camera may be placed a device to use normal AA batteries, which you can buy two sets of NiMH rechargeable batteries and forget, but of course would not be the light reflex Nikon F65, but a tank. I think Nikon’s decision to use these batteries is precisely the size and weight.

      - Trigger from a distance.

      Well, the idea of using an infrared remote control is good,


      in fact in other cameras, including digital, flip people with these controls. It’s inexpensive, little more than an electronic cable.

      A related point above is the battery consumption on long exposures. Once you have the command can do astronomical photography, but consume power while the camera is exposing, so in a picture, say 2 hours of exposure, you can merge a set of batteries. Obviously, this camera does not work for astrophotography.

      - Manual adjustment of sensitivity.

      Bad thing. This camera has no manual setting of film speed. Those who master the technique of forcing the sensitivity of the film, to forget about this camera. Provides that if, would be a good thing that he did, a forced manual and quite comfortable to + / - 2 EV in 1 / 2 EV.

      - Locking the exposure.

      This is also bad business. My compact camera 16000 Ricoh has a function that this one does not have, and exposure lock tapping the ...


      • trigger. Imagine for showing the picture to the lighting conditions of a certain portion of the frame (eg, backlit or shadow detail.) With the exposure lock, aim the camera to the area in question, slightly press the button and the camera does not change the conditions of exposure until you let go of you finish tightening to make the photo. Well, the F65 does not have that function. I guess Nikon will change this feature in upcoming releases of the camera.

        The only way to avoid this situation is to use the manual mode, with center-weighted metering.

        - Now comes the good things about the camera.

        This camera has many great features not found in other reflex camera of the same level as the field preview, automatic exposure bracketing, multiple exposure with automatic flash, etc.

        - 3D Matrix Exhibition.

        The camera exposes incredibly well, and I rely on that 80% of slide film I use. The negatives, sometimes they are compensated

        in the process of positivism, and not valid for determining the quality of camera exposure. Sometimes I got better exhibitions underexposing exposure manually offset to -1 EV, but only in rare cases.

        -Flash.

        The flash is a marvel despite it only has a guide number of 12. It’s amazing how you fill a large room without the end zone is dark or burned the foreground, and that using a 28 mm frame. No outdoor served by its low power, but neither can you ask for the impossible.

        —- Conclusions:

        - Good camera to start off, but I began to see limitations just right after i bought it, and I am a beginner in the photography.

        - Affordable price, but also would be given a chance to Canon EOS 300 and the Minolta Dynax 400 and 500, especially the latter.

        - Light and beautiful.

        - The full range of Nikon lens at your disposal. (Although this is true a Nikon 80-200 ED IF would be better in a F80 or F100 …..)
