Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I've owned this camera Nikon F65 for a few years and it was working perfectly, but I haven't used it for the past year or so and now it just stopped working! I put fresh batteries in, lights come on and all functions are displayed ok, but the shutter isn't releasing and it isn't taking any pictures as if all the functions are disabled, no use pressing the shutter as nothing happens. I'd really appreciate your advice on this matter, thanks!

    Thanks.. It didn't work though, it's very frustrating.

    I wrote to Nikon for help and support and all they wrote back is that they can't assist me unless I post the camera to them, they could have at least give me some tips on what they think the problem is!

Some times you can gently tap the camera on its side while pushing the shutter button and free it loose.

Nikon F65 won't auto-focus or take shots

You're on the right track with oxidation. Try cleaning the contacts in the body and on the lens with contact cleaner, and let it dry. Remove the battery, and clean the contacts inside the camera.

Whenever i upload a video to my computer it turns out choppy and slow. I downloaded Nikon Transfer and after using it my videos are still choppy. What do I do about this?

I'm a video game programmer with 20 years experience in software, and have a reasonable understanding movie playback software.

I also have a Nikon (S6100) and the problem is nothing to do with PC memory or CPU speed. The Nikon creates a broken version of the MPEG-4 AVC H.264 format, which results in choppy playback. I've tried Quicktime, VLC and the cameras own player - ViewNX2 - same result for all of them.

Converting the buggy .MOV files the Nikon creates to a .avi format produces perfectly smooth (flawless) video, but with the sound out of sync. I can also create perfect quality (lower res) DVD video, but with the sound missing.

I have spoken to Nikon about all this and they are quite simply clueless and will take no responsibility. As there is no firmware up[date for this camera I'm taking the camera back, as it is basically flawed.

I've read a few sites with customers complaining about choppy video for this camera, so it looks like the model itself is flawed.

My camera wont focus properly

In that case, the AF system has failed.

Unfortunately, this now means that you F65 has just become an unrepairable spares donor. Your camera was a short-lived budget model and Nikon never gave it the spares support of more expensive models.

IF you can find the spare parts needed, they'll exceed the cost of replacing your camera, and that's even before you include labour costs.

It's not all bad news though: models like the F65 and F75 are simply of no value to Nikon enthusiasts so are available very cheaply. I recently got a boxed, mint, "used for just one holiday" F75 with the kit 28-100 lens for free on my local Freegle group (a UK offshoot of FreeCycle, where many of my other Nikons and Canons have come from). Used camera dealers tend to sell F65/F75 bodies for around £50-£60, and on auction sites they tend to go for anywhere between £5 to £30 unless there are competing idiot bidders. Last summer I also got a Nikon n8008s (F801s) on FreeCycle, it's a bit battered but works perfectly, so it's definitely worth registering with all of the groups within easy reach of you and regularly scanning the offers.

Erratic shutters

It is well past the end of its expected life - retire it and ask for a new one for Christmas.

Sigma 70-300 F4-5.6 APO DG MACRO for Nikon AFD Focusing problem

had this lens for my Pentax and used it for more than 10 years without trouble.
Have you got the lock on? should be a little button on the side.
Has it been dropped, maybe damage to the threads inside.
If its still under warranty then take it to the place you bought it from with all its paper work and get it checked out.

External flash problems

Sounds like the external flash is being triggered by the pre-flash.

On the D40 set the flash mode to manual. On the F65 set the flash mode to Standard TTL.
