Question about Nikon N60 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Choice of film speed

I haven't used my N60 in a couple years and I'd like to get it back out and start to use it after I have my baby. I enjoy photographing in B&W and Im not sure what the best brand and speed of film to use that would work best in photographing my new baby without using flash. Help!

ISO400 is probably the film you want to go, as higher speed film costs more and have more grain...

What type of film does a n60 slr camera use


The N60 uses standard 35mm film (also known as 135). 35mm film usually comes in 12, 24, or 36 exposure rolls, any of which will work. 35mm film is available in black-and-white, color transparency (color slides), and color negative (color prints). It's also available in infrared, both color and black-and-white, but the N60 will not work with infrared film.
35mm film is available online and at any camera shop. Many department stores, drugstores, and even supermarkets also carry film, though not as wide a selection as a decent camera shop.

What does err with flashing film picture mean


It means either your film has reached the end, the film is jammed and cannot advance or the film is improperly loaded. The film leader may have slipped from the sprocket or broken,

I purchased a Nikon N60 used. The film will not automatcally load therefore not shoot


Please follow these instructions: 1. Open the camera back 2. Pull the film leader across the red film index mark (red line) 3. Check to ensure film is properly positioned with no slack, then close camera back 4. Fully depress shutter release button to advance to frame 1. Check the rewind lever if it turns counter clockwise when you depress the shutter release button.
Keep on trying this procedure until you get it right. Most of the time, the error is in not pulling the film leader enough to reach the red film index mark.
If you're still having a problem with this, the next best option is to have the camera checked by a competent camera technician.

How do i rewind the film on the nikon n60?


The camera should rewind the film when it reaches the end of the roll. If it doesn't, or to force a rewind in the middle of a roll, press the mid-roll rewind button with a pointed object. The button is on the bottom of the camera, toward the left end (away from the handgrip), and marked with a roll of film.

How do i load up my film?


Turn on the main switch, then open the camera back and insert the film. Pull film leader out to the red index mark. Gently close the camera back until the lock release snaps closed. Film automatically advances to the first frame.

I have a Nikon N60 35mm camera its displaying F3 3 in the viewfinder what does it mean and how do I fix it


It's not clear from your question that this is actually a problem as you haven't said what the display is doing to cause you problems actually using the camera.

What is certain is that it's supposed to display a F number in the viewfinder. Along the bottom of the display will be a number (shutter speed), an F number (aperture setting, when in auto or shutter priority modes this may not exactly match what's set on the lens), and moving bar + - scale too indicate over (+) or under (-) exposure.

If you really don't know what the F number is nor what it's for then you need to read both a good photography for beginners guide and also the camera manual. Explaining the relationship between shutter speeds, aperture settings and film speeds in any truly meaningful way here is beyond the limited scope of FixYa as whole books are devoted to the subject, but you only need a few pages and pictures from the available publications to get a good idea.

You can download a free user guide for your camera at the address below. It's for a Nikon F60, but it's identical to the your camera which was called the N60 in North America to distinguish it from unofficial imports.

Shutter Speed


If your shutter speeds are off you can compensate by changing the film speed setting,
quicker ( than should be ) shutter speeds require you to set the film speed to slower ASA .. KC
