F65 shutter speed question

Hi,
I saw your replies to some users and I was wondering if you could explain something to me. I recently tried an f65. Before I have only tried a completely manual SLR and loved it. Therefore, the automatic mode kind of confuses me. As one other user, after only a couple shots the camera showed an FEE message in the upper right corner of the screen. I had just gotten new batteries so it was a surprise. I thought it might have been the film but everything was fine there. You advised to others to check their speed was set to the highest (22). I had been used to setting up everything manually, so I don't understand what happens if I set it to the highest setting. What if I need different speeds, will it self-adjust? How do I change them if I can't do it manually? Please help! I am very confused.
K.

The lens must be set to F/22 on that model so the camer can set the aperture. Setting it to 22 tells the camera it is ready, so the camera can actually set the proper f/stop according to the light level. You can set the aperture yourself using the control knobs on the camera - in manual settings. In Aperture, or Shutter settings, you can set the aperture or shutter speed and the camera will set the right exposure. On Program, the camera sets both aperture and shutter.

I need an operator's manual for a Cosen C-650 MNC steel saw. I bought the saw used and I am not able to figure out how to get the saw to drop at a cutting speed rather than a fast drop.


Hi markov1...
I am sorry I could not find a user manual for you, but I did find their website and phone number.
I would guess that you could give them a call and explain that you need a user manual and they could supply you one.
Go to the following website and there information is there.

Nikon F65 35mm how to change the aperture


If the lens has an aperture ring, it must be locked at the mininum aperture (largest F/number). In PSAM modes use the command dial (possibly in conjunction with the exposure compensation button) to change shutter speed/aperture.

Adjust shutter speed


On most indoor shots the shutter speed will normally be 1/30 if you need or want it to be faster than that the only way to do that with this camera is to set the ISO to a higher value. Page 29 of your user manual explains how to set the ISO value for the camera to allow for faster shutter speeds.

Do you mean that, you press the shutter release once and the shutter stays open until you press the shutter release a second time. If so, check your shutter speed setting. If it is set to "T" (Timed Exposure) the camera is working correctly. Change your shutter speed to an appropriate setting, such as 1/125. If that does not solve the problem, you might need to take it in for repair.

Hi Worldvet, there was no link behind windows registry, I think intellisense does not work on words that have a link already.

I forgot about that problem, I posted again, this time with the links, my first post was just a bit c..p, that is also reason for the confusion.

Yes, I noticed intellisense is confusing things, as it gets mixed with our links, I wonder if it would be possible having intellisense links in green, so that they dont get mixed with our links.

Gosh Megz, That's prolly more than anyone wants to type. Go to the Library or a book store. I'll try to explain white balance for you. Inside the camera is a program that evaluates the light during exposure. It tries to determine what is white and adjust the other colors in the photos accordingly by adjusting tint and temperature. Your eyes and brain do this for you. If you have a tripod try taking a photo in automatic mode and write down what the shutter speed and f stop was for that photo. Adjust your camera to those settings manually and take the same photo over. This way you will get a consistent photo to look at. Then change your color balance to different settings like daylight, cloudy, shade, tungsten (which is incandescent lighting) and fluorescent and view the difference in colors after you download to your image viewer on your computer. You'll think you went back to the late 60's.

Nikon F65 power switch button issue


rads_london,
Sounds like you have been shooting in one of the manual modes, make sure if you have been trying different F-stops to change the aperture ring back to it's auto position (red numbers F-22 usually) to align with the white dot on the lens. That way the camera and lens can agree on the amount of light needed and how much the shutter will open to allow light in. The camera won't take the shot if it is way off (kind of a safety). Use the viewfinder to learn what combinations the camera needs for a particular shot so you can be familiar with the speed and aperture settings, try them in one of the manual modes and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results. Soon you won't shoot as much in auto mode.
