It would need to be professionally serviced as it sounds like an electronics issue. However, you might want to consider how cost effective that would be as used F90S and F90X bodies are selling for $50 - $60 right now.

It might make sense to sell yours for parts and pick up a used one.

How to change the shutter speed on my nikon n65 film 35mm slr camera


In the manual and shutter-priority modes (set the dial to "M" or "S"), turn the command dial to change the shutter speed. In the aperture-priority mode (set the dial to "A"), turning the command dial changes the aperture and the camera will set the shutter speed appropriately.

I would like a 35-105 or 35-135 lens for my nikon f90x which one can i use


The F90X can use just about any Nikon-mount lens made in the past half-century, with the exception of lenses specifically designed for digital cameras with smaller sensors.

Nikon currently makes two 24-120mm lenses:

Among older lenses there are autofocus 24-120mm, 28-105mm, 35-105mm lenses:

There are a number of third-party lenses as well, from makers such as Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina.

I'm doing a project for school and i need to change the aperture for different photos. But my camera refuses to take the photo on any other aperture. Why is there an aperture adjuster if you can't use it....


It depends on the lens.

If you're using a lens with an aperture ring, simply set the exposure mode to Manual or Aperture priority and change the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. In Aperture priority the camera will set the shutter speed appropriately, in Manual you have to determine the appropriate shutter speed. If you want to use such a lens in Shutter priority or one of the Program modes, you must set the aperture to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it.

If you're using a lens without an aperture ring then it's a bit harder. You can only use the camera in Shutter priority or one of the Program modes. You turn the command dial on the camera to change the exposure, and the aperture will change. If you want to use an exposure different than what the meter suggests, you can adjust it by using either exposure compensation or changing the ISO setting (or both).

Hi, I have an old Nikon F90X with Nikon AF NIKKOR 28-200 mm lens. Can I use this len in othernew Nikon digital camera? Thanks, Tz


Yes. But unless you're using one the the expensive full-frame models the lens will produce images that are magnified by a factor of 1.5. So your 28-200mm lens will behave like a 42-300. Aperture values are unaffected though. On the plus side, the fact that DX sensors only use the middle of the lens image means that the pronounced image pin-cushioning is greatly reduced, and the vignetting (darkened corners) is also reduced.

Both versions of the 28-200 (AF-D and AF-G, click for details courtesy of Ken Rockwell) lack an in-built focus motor, so autofocus only works with Nikon bodies which have an AF motor built in. Not all the digital models have them, but if that's the case with yours then you can still focus manually.

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.

How do set the self timer in Nikon F70


Press the SET/timer button (top left of the camera, behind the FUNCTION button, marked SET with a one-handed clock icon) and confirm that the one-handed clock begins blinking on the LCD panel. While pressing the SET/timer button, rotate the command dial one click to stop it blinking. Proceed normally (frame and compose picture, half-press shutter release button to meter and autofocus, etc). Fully depress the shutter release button to take the picture after a ten-second delay.

If you need a manual, you can download one from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm . Look for "N70", which was the name used in the USA.

It blinks F EE and won't let me take anything!


Like the newer digital SLRs, the camera requires that you have the aperture ring on the lens set to the minimum f stop, i.e. the highest number F22, F32.

You can only change the aperture using the command/sub-command dial on your camera.  The aperture ring on the camera must remain locked at the smallest setting (largest number).

Aperture priority not working...HELP!!


Hey Mike, This is an easy one. With the battery grip attached, you can only have either Shutter Priority or Aperture Priority work properly. You can change it with the custom function settings of the camera. So you can change it to work with Aperture Priority if you use that more so then shutter priority won't work. Brandon
