Question about Nikon N65 35mm SLR Camera
If you're looking at it through the front then you will as there is a pentaprism inside feeding the lens view through to the viewfinder so that it displays the right way up and right way around. Almost all SLR's have them which is why they have a hump on top.
As long as the image in the viewfinder is correct then there's no problem. If the prism effect is visible, then the prism has become dislodged and on an N65/F65 it's not really worth repairing. The camera is very definitely a consumer grade model which was never intended to be dismantled for major repair and as there are millions of perfectly good free ones available (late, consumer grade, 35mm AF bodies from most manufacturers are seen as worthless liabilities) there's really little point in attempting a repair except to gain knowledge of how your camera comes apart. If you manage to dismantle, repair and reassemble without breaking anything or finding other broken and unobtainable parts inside then it's a bonus.
If you want to find a free SLR then check out FreeCycle: you may need to check often and be patient but they do come up. Be flexible: you may have to accept any make or model but if they come with lenses then it's no problem. Most of the freebies are Nikon or Canon anyway so if you need to stay with Nikon then it's not a major problem. I recently got a boxed and barely used F75 kit with a 28-100 lens and all it needed was new batteries and film.
