Question about Nikon Photography
Hi, I have a Nikon f-601 SLR, but I am having trouble loading the film. I open the back and put the film in and roll it to the end but when I close it and switch the camera on, the film does not 'catch' and it comes up with fEE on the screen. can anyone help? thanks

normally this problem comes when the apparture selector ring is not sat to highest appartutr. i.e. f22 or whatever highest apparture available with the lense. just lock it there .

I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).
I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.
When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.
I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.
After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!
By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.
I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..

Hi, check the camera set in auto /manually in auto function, check battery might drain the current , dis engage camera to lense to release the mirror by pressing button beside lense , turn lense in left or right .

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
