20 Most Recent Nikon F65 35mm SLR Camera Questions & Answers

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.

I've read recently of a slew of older Nikon amateur film cameras from the late '80's to mid-'90's that have electronics that have failed. Their prosumer cameras (8008, N90, F100, etc) don't seem to be affected as much as their amateur cameras (N2000, N60, N65, etc). You could try cleaning the contacts of both the camera body and lens - as well as the battery compartment, but if that doesn't work, you may be out of luck. The good news is that you can pick up another N65 for less than ten bucks at most camera shops, both online and brick and mortar.

If the lens has an aperture ring, it must be locked at the mininum aperture (largest F/number). In PSAM modes use the command dial (possibly in conjunction with the exposure compensation button) to change shutter speed/aperture.

This indicates that the aperture ring on the lens is not set properly. Turn the ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If the lens has a lock, set it. You can then control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

That indicates that there is no film in the camera, or that the film is not loaded properly. It can also appear if you finish the roll and the camera has finished rewinding.

Odd this is the second Nikon F65 for me to write on in the last five minutes.

Gotta Love Film

When you get your film processed, you can request that they be put on a CD. The CD can then be read on a computer and you can do whatever you wish with the photos. For existing photos, you can also have the negatives scanned and put on a CD. If you only have prints, they can also be scanned but the quality will suffer.

When I get film processed from my Nikon 35mm SLRs, I ask for only the CD and no prints. This only costs me $2, and I can choose which pictures I want printed--after doing whatever photo editing I want.

Any camera store can do this for you, as can many department and electronic stores.

The F65 is a film camera. You must get the film processed before you can see any pictures. If you have the setup yourself, you can develop the film. Otherwise, take the film to a photo processing lab (any camera store and many department stores, drugstores, and supermarkets either have them or have access to one) and get it processed. If you're shooting negative film, you can get prints. If you're shooting slide film, you can get slides. Either way, you can also request a CD containing the digitized images.

Again, the F65 is a film camera. The camera can't show you the images it has taken.

Yes, as long as it's not a DX lens. DX lenses are designed for the smaller image area of some digital cameras and will cause vignetting (dark corners) on a 35mm camera. The vibration reduction feature of VR lenses won't work, but won't cause any problems.

DX lenses will fit and work, but as mentioned above, you will get dark corners.

Try setting the lens' aperture [ring] to its minimum [e.g. F/32], and then set your preferred F/stops in the camera settings (not using the aperture ring). This should fix the problem.

To rewind the film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for one second. The two buttons are marked with a red film symbol, and double as the Auto Exposure Bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder and the Aperture/Exposure Compensation button to the right of the control panel.

The film is completely rewound when a blinking "E" shows in the control panel.

Hi thomasprinks, It may be the mirror is in the up position. Remove the lens see if you see a mirror or the shutter. If the mirror is up it may be stuck to the top of the film box. Those areas sometimes become tacky holding on to the mirror. You could remove the batteries to see if the mirror will fall into place.
