It depends on the lens. If it's a CPU lens (has electrical contacts) then the meter should work in any mode. If the lens doesn't have contacts then the meter won't work.

N75 will not stop showing e


This is perfectly normal. The camera will show the remaining number of exposures or "E" if it's empty, even if it's turned off.

I have a Nikon F601 and I put a 400 iso film recently and I sort of didnt know how to load it on properly so I pressed the shutter release button as I loaded it twice when youre only suppose to press it...


Remove the lense, or the film if you're willing to waste it, and check to be sure the shutter blades aren't damaged. It'll be fairly evident if they are. If they are, the camera is pretty much now a paperweight. I hate to tell you that - but shutter replacements are VERY expensive and parts for most of these models no longer available from Nikon.

If that is not the issue, set the mode dial to M and try to take a shot. If that also doesn't work, either the batteries are exhausted or there is an internal issue in the camera. At this point, try new batteries. If that also gets you nowhere, you'll need to seek a reputable service tech, either through Nikon directly, locally if you can find one, or online/mail-order. If you have to go mail-order/online I'd recommend KEH Camera out of Atlanta, GA. They are very reasonable, have decent turn around, and do good work - but expect at least 1 month without your camera.

In M(anual) mode, be sure the lense is also set to M, via the switch on the front of the camera near the lense mount. You're not worrying about the quality of the image, only if the camera will take one. In manual mode, the light meter and other functions will have NO bearing on anything the camera does or doesn't do. At this point the meter reads out only for your information for you to set the settings yourself. The batteries do everything else - firing the shutter, driving the motor, etc.

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.

Self timer for the nikon n55


Press the self-timer button just to the right of the LCD panel and confirm that the self-timer icon appears. Press the shutter release halfway to focus and meter. Press the shutter the rest of the way to activate.To cancel, either turn the camera off or press the self-timer button until the self-timer icon disappears.

You can get a manual at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm

Wont focus


I suspect the problem may be with the electrical connections between the lens and the camera body. These look like small brass ball bearings on the body or lens which meet with connections when the lens is mounted. You can clean these effectively with a small cotton bud dampened with methylated spirits (carefully). This may well solve your problem. Otherwise, your camera may require servicing.

Instruction manual for settings on a Nikon F2?


Set the film speed with the dial on top of the Photomic unit. Lift the chrome ring and turn so that the film speed is next to the little red arrow.
Yes, the aperture is set by the lens ring. And if you have one of the older finders which uses the prong meter connection, whenever you mount a lens you must turn the aperture ring all the way to the highest number, then back to the lowest number. For old-timers, this is known as the "Nikon twist". It tells the meter system what the widest aperture of the lens is so that it can measure light properly at full aperture.
Yes, the shutter speed is set by the dial on top. The Photomic meter sits on top of it, so you read the shutter speed from the scale on the side of the Photomic dial by the mark on the back.
The other buttons on the front are the lens release button (left side as you hold the camera), DOF preview (button just under shutter release), mirror lock-up (lever ring around DOF button) and self-timer (long lever at bottom).
The T-L ring serves to protect the shutter release from accidental push. If you lift the ring and turn the mark to L, the shutter release is Locked. If you lift and turn to T, it prepares the shutter for Time operation, where the shutter remains open when released without holding the button down as you do at the B speed setting.

Finally, the most help: you can download the manual for free (donation requested, and worth it) at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon/nikon_f2_photomic/nikon_f2_photomic.htm

Cannot get Error to go away


If it's a D lens or similar, check that the lens is set to its minumum aperture (and locked) - ERR normally means that the lens is not at its minimum aperture.

If your lens is a G lens, then the camera is probably faulty.

N75/ fEE


The camera requires you to set your lens aperture at the minimum setting, usually orange coloured. I.E. f22 f32. Nikons control the aperture through the camera, not setting the ring manually like old style SLR's

For the F75, look for the N75 (they're the same camera).
