I bought this camera for the 28-100 lens. This is a light weight point and shoot SLR with many capabilities. On Automatic all you do is point and shoot. It has
auto focus and takes great pictures. Also there are dial in settings for Sports, Landscape, Portrait, etc. It has a 10 second self timer and also works with a remote which is a pretty nice feature. If you need longer self timer time buy the Nikon N75 which can be programed for 20 second timer. The N80 is a more sophisticated camera body however does not have remote capability. Take your pick. These are all great SLR film cameras. Use 100 speed film to for best image quality. Cheers. MikeB
I'm not going to get technical with this review, as I have not used the camera extensively yet. The camera came with two sets of instructions. A "quick photo guide" and a more extensive instruction booklet. Both were easy to read and understand. The camera was purchased for my 9 year old son to use. I have always loved film photography, and he seemed to take a keen interest in it also. After he read the quick guide instructions we set a program mode on the dial, and started shooting some rolls of film. We have horses so we started with them as our shooting subjects. The camera works great!...and takes some great pictures!!! It is as simple and as complex to use as YOU want it to be...Short of being a totally professional use camera I think ANYONE would be happy with the N65 camera. The program modes are easy to pick and use. It has Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Close-up (Macro), Sports Continuous, Night Scene, as well as Auto Multi Program, Shutter Priority, and Manual modes. Just about any combination of programs to get creative with your photography skill level. The N65 also has a built in, pop up speed light (flash). I would say that if my 9 year old and I could take some pretty good pictures, anyone else would be able to do a great job as well. The only complaint I would have is that the body of this camera is polycarbonate (plastic). I love the heavy feel of metal and aluminum so it was a little sad to feel this superlight weight camera in my hands when it arrived. But that being known, the light weight WAS appreciated by my young son. I'm sure when we are carrying the camera around to use it I will not be complaining about the weight then. I know that if we treat it like a camera should be treated it will serve us very well for many many years to come. The camera was purchased VERY economically. Everyone is looking for the Digital Cameras so this obviously has brought the 35mm SLR film cameras down in price. I dont think you can go wrong with this camera. The lenses that can be purchased for the camera are also very economical and extremely easy to find. I'm an "old school" kind of a guy. This camera mixes the "old" 35mm film camera technology with the newer micro chip and auto focus technology very nicely. Nikon did a great job mixing the two. If you like the 35mm SLR film cameras you will not be disappointed with this great little camera.

The Nikon N65 was an entry level Single Lens Reflex film camera produced by Nikon. I actually sold them new, when I worked in a camera store. The next model up was the N80. The N65 has several program modes and full manual over ride. It comes with a pop up flash and is geared toward the beginning photographer or someone who wishes the camera will make all the decisions for them.
The beginning photographer after gaining some experience may shift the N65 into one of several more manual modes such as Aperture priority, shutter priority or full manual.
The Nikon N65 lens mount is the Nikon F mount and takes full advantage of all Nikon auto focus lenses. It can also utilize many of the Nikon manual focus lenses as well, but you lose all automatic metering capabilities and some lenses in the manual system will not be compatible with the N65.
The N65 has full automatic film advance and rewind but does not advance the film with blistering speed. You must remember this is an entry level SLR.
I purchased the camera because I am a Nikon collector and was able to acquire it at a price I felt was fair for a used auto focus camera. I know many people who were able to start with this camera and then move up to a more advanced model. This would make a fairly good backup camera.
With the advent of digital to its current state, I doubt many people other than high school or college students will be buying many film cameras.
Film Cameria are not a thing of the past. I repeat, not a thing of the past. Most would feel that it is with all the digitial camerias on the market. The Nikon N65 is an outstand example great 35mm film camera still a live a kicking. It incorporates most of the newest technologies that Nikon has developed in there labs for the past few years. And now there newer cameras are out fitted with these new technologies. The dynamic auto focus for one. Secondly the matrix metering make this camera very easy to use in complete auto mode while it still has the ability to shoot in manual modes which is the tricky bit. Just a bit. This is mainly due to the confusing part of changing the aperture while in manual mode. Most people will be used to using the lens, however, now the aperture and shutter speed buttons are used instead. Countless time you will find yourself reaching for the lens then remembering you have to use the buttons. But it will become faster once you get used to it over time unless this is your first and only cameria. Then this could make all other cameras seem a bit confussing to you. This camera gives you the feeling that the machines have taken over due to the cameria doing most of the work .Some of the best features range from aperture priority, shutter priority, exposure bracketing. It alsouses the Nikon ML-L3 remote control shutter release option. You don't see that deature to often This make makes the cameria extremely reliably and it takes great beatiful crisp clean pictures. But one on the draw backs is that the camera seem to take a long time to focus on each shoot, but the final shoot is over all worth it. Not the best camera for a last second picture.
Overall its a very lightweight and easy to carry cameria, easy to use and affordable camera that takes a high quaility pictures. A few options are confusing due to them not following stard cameria layout. Nocticeable slow focuse but over all a very good Cameria.
The Nikon N65 is a great 35mm film camera. It incorporates most of the newest technologies that Nikon developed for the higher end N80 and pro level cameras. The dynamic auto focus and matrix metering make this camera very easy to use in complete auto mode while it still has the ability to shoot in manual modes. Aperture priority, shutter priority, exposure bracketing and one of the few film cameras that uses the Nikon ML-L3 remote control shutter release option. Paired with a Nikon lens, this camera will take spectacular pictures reliably...I own two digital cameras that are relegated to shoot technical pictures like construction details or machinery. When I want to capture beauty, the sunset, landscapes, I use the N65. Film photography is still the choice for many, even those with digitals that want the shutter release speed of a 35mm camera. A light weight, easy to use and inexpensive camera that takes a great picture.
