Nikon n55 manual mode f.stop and shutter speed controles

Hi, I am teaching a 35 mm film darkroom course at a high school and one of my students has a Nikon N55 and no instruction manual. Can you please give me a basic run down of how to control the f.stop with the shutter speed in manual mode?
Thanks,
Joney

    Thank you Ands, but none came through in English, and I do not speak or read anything else with enough proficiency to understand the instruction manual! But Thank you for your effort.
    Sincerely,
    Joney

Nikon N65 with Nikkor 35~80mm AF lens will not focus or shoot


N65s were notorious for bad shutter release buttons. The metal is thinner than a strand of hair and they break. Search Ebay and see if the part is available to replace (note: Nikon stopped selling parts last year).

Hoe do i set different speeds


In S and M modes you control the shutter speed directly by turning the command dial on the back of the camera. In A mode the dial controls the aperture which indirectly affects the shutter speed. In P mode the dial shifts the exposure to another equivalent exposure, which also changes the shutter speed.

You can download a manual from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm

How do i read a light meter on a Nikon N55? i see the f stop but i dont see the shuter speed, how do i adjust and how do i know its right?


Your camera is either fully automatic or fully manual. In addition it has shutter priority and aperture priority semi-automatic functions. With shutter prior. you pick the shutter speed you prefer and the camera will adjust the aperture. With Aperture prior it works the other way around. The exposure will be always the optimum (decided by the camera program).
You can adjust these automatics with the program dial.

Shutter speed


When you set the camera to "Full Manual" mode, you should be able to dial in your shutter speeds, for most film cameras, including the N55 30 Seconds is the slowest shutter speed. If your camera features a "Bulb" mode, then the shutter stays open as long as you are holding down the shutter release button.

Nikon N55 camera locks up


The F-- indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. There are several reasons for this.

The lens is not capable of communicating. If it's an old lens, without the electrical contacts, then you'll have to set the camera to Manual (M) mode in order to use this lens.

If the lens has an aperture ring, set it to the smallest aperture (biggest F/number) and lock it (if it has a lock).

If the lens has no aperture ring, then the contacts may be dirty. Remove lens, clean contacts on back of the lens and in the mount on the body, then reattach lens.

If that doesn't do it, then either the camera and/or the lens may require service.

Nikon N55 Won't take picture in Auto Focus Mode?


There was a recall on the N55 due to auto focus problems. You can do a google search or nikon.com email the support team and they will send you the paper. This is what I did, I wasn't charged since I had the correct papers. I, however, used one roll of film and my focus went out again! Mine doesn't even work on manual... If you want to try that maybe you will hae better luck than me. GOOD LUCK!

Yes, on this camera you leave the aperture ring at f22 and use the camera's controls to set your f-stop. It won't work is you change the ring on the lens. You gain the control of the aperture in the 'M' and 'A' modes. The 'P' setting is for the camera to pick both speed and aperture for you. 'S' is shutter priority, etc

Bad picture developing


Since this happened on two seperate rolls of film, the problem may be that the shutter blades have been bent out of place.  This can cause the symptoms you describe.  Have a qualified technician look at the shutter.  Usually the blades can be reset.  In bad cases the blades may be bent or creased. If this is the case, the shutter may need to be replaced.
