Question about Nikon N6006 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Film speed override?

For some reason my N6006 will not read the DX coding on a cannister of infrared film I need to shoot for my photo class. How does one go about manually overriding the film speed so that I can use the light meter? I've looked on the internet and in the manual and I can't find anything.

thanks!

Press and hold the ISO button on the top left and rotate the command dial on the right until the film speed appears on the display. Release the ISO button and the speed is set.

In case your instructor hasn't told you, IR light is just below visible light on the spectrum and has a longer wavelength. Therefore, IR light will focus behind the film plane for a given setting. I.e., if you preset the lens to focus at 10 feet, the IR light will focus at a shorter distance. Unless your lens has a distance mark for IR, I would limit my shooting to longer distances and smaller f-stops to use the depth-of -field to compensate. When you are in focus for IR, the image in your viewfinder will be out of focus. The closer you are to the subject, the more out of focus the image will appear at the correct focus setting.

Where are the film contacts inside film compartment of a minolta300si camera?


Are you talking about the camera reading the DX coding of the film canister? If so, when you place the film in the left side the camera automatically sets the film speed based on the DX coding of the film cartridge. Look in where you place the film canister there you will see the little brass buttons.

ISO DX ERR


What speed film? Does the roll have the DX markings (the black-and-silver rectangles)? If it doesn't, what happens if you set the film speed manually?

Will the autofocus works on N6006 if I put on a DX lens?


Yes, the autofocus should work. However you'll likely get vignetting on your photos because a DX lens is designed to cover a smaller area than a frame of 35mm film.

How to set asa on nikon 5005


If the film has the DX coding on the can then the camera automatically sets the film speed. If the can is not coded then the camera automatically sets the ASA/ISO to 100, and there is no way to override this.
If you need a manual, you may download one here.

What size film does the minolta 150bf take


It takes 35mm film, with DX coding (look for the DX logo on the box, but it's difficult to find non-DX coded film these days). It can handle 100, 200 and 400 ISO film speeds.

I have a Konica Minolta Date 35mm camera, 1996? I replaced the batteries properly. For a brief second I see light in the area where the number of photos remaining to take is visible. I need the camera in...


I believe this is a point and shoot model, if so, all you need to do is load film and go, the camera does the rest. You may want to shoot and get a test roll developed before the 28th if it's something important. New film is DX coded, so it'll tell pretty much any P&S model made past 1985 what speed film is loaded. The camera takes it from there, all you need to do is aim and push the button.

I have trouble taking indoor (low light) photos. pictures come out blury and the camera does not snap the picture properly i have a nikon 35 mm n6006 camera


Hi Rebecca--
The hardest thing about low light photography is balancing your available shutter speed to the amount of action you're trying to capture.
Here are a few things to try:
1) Try using a tripod. Steadying your camera during long exposures will greatly improve your image clarity.
2) Buy a faster film. You may need to increase your film's ISO setting. Try 400 to start, then go up from there. Remember, faster film always produces grainy images, and it usually costs a little more to process. If you're stuck with 100 ISO, you can always "push process" the film, where a given ISO is let to sit in its developer longer than usual--This will cost you more too!
3) Invest in a good flash system. Nikon has tons of hotshoe flash systems that rarely compromise the ambient light-mood of a given situation. Look for one that lets you aim the flash in different directions, and try to find one that will meter a light situation on its own.
4) Turn on the lights. If you're ok with losing some of the romance of an image, turn on some more lights to give you some more flexibility when making your exposure choices.
5) Open up your aperture. You may find that a lot less in depth of field will give you a lot more in image clarity and exposure flexibility. Shooting at f2.8 with only a birthday cake lighting your subject will grant you many more valuable shutter stops that shooting the same with f5.6.
Remember, Rebecca, if you're shooting handheld, you must do everything in your power to shoot with the quickest shutter speed available. This will cut down on the blurriness of your indoor images.
--Hope this helps.

'Err' & 'E"


Is the film loaded correctly? Have you tried reloading it? Also is it flashing DX too? That would mean the film speed is not DX coded so you need to set the film speed manually.

Premature Film Rewinding


the only thing that I could think of when I read your situation is, that you might not be using a DX coated films. see, the camera reads the bar code on the film and maybe it is not the same program. check the camear manual and make sure you are using the same kind of the suggested film in the manual. good luck
