The Long Lost Nikon N65

2011-05-20 5

The long lost Nikon N65 black and silver is my first, SLR and first analogue camera! I love this camera and is one of the cameras that I bring around everywhere. And I would recommend this to any beginner!

I didn’t really get analogue till I bought my Nikon N65. When I first saw the Nikon N65 it was an SLR and I have always wanted a DSLR, and I though SLR was the cheapest closest thing I could get. So I bought it.

I didn’t know how to work it at first, so I searched it up the manual on the internet and I later on got the hang of it.

Once I started using it I loved it, and I got to see why this whole community is so crazy over analogue cameras.

The film advances by itself, so the only bad thing about that is that you cant multiple expose.

Even though I love setting my mind free on Manual, I also let the camera free on auto mode. Letting it decide the aperture, flash, shutter speed for me.

The camera also has an awesome macro mode.

Also the camera has an autofocus for those moments when your too lazy to manually do it yourself.

It is a very fun camera to play with and use. I love this camera.

    Actually, the F65 CAN do multiple exposure using the "Auto Exposure Bracketing/Multiple exposure" button.

    Search this online instruction manual for the words "multiple exposure" to find out how

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
