Nikon F6 - some points of interest

AZPhotog, Adorama
6 November 2014
  • Excerpt: The Nikon F6 is a highly engineered 35mm film camera designed for the current crop of enthusiasts wanting the very best in modern technology. I won't go into any of its specifications, which are easily found at its listing at camera store websites. (Suffice it to say this product has many unique and impressive engineering design features.) There are, however, some features of note with this camera, so a user really should fully read and understand the manual.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Fast Film Loading, Strong Construction

A Special Film Camera

MJ, B&H Photo
13 October 2014
  • Excerpt: The Nikon F6, paired with a few classic Nikkor lenses, seems to strike a good balance between a high performance film SLR and a camera that still possesses the charm and interestingness of its predecessors. The F6 gets my nod over the Canon 1V, which feels coldly designed and business-like in comparison; and even over the Leica, whose manual-process can become a limiting distraction while trying to document family life.

Film version of the D800

Alex, B&H Photo
28 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I had most of the Nikon's film cameras and the F6 is closing the Nikon SLR family as the king ! It works great with the new Nikkor AF-s lenses. I use it with Fuji Velvia 50 (you need fast lenses). The only complain I have about the camera is the back LCD, way too small ! Or maybe we got spoiled with huge digital cameras screens ! Anyway, if you like shooting films (slides of negatives), this is the best camera you can get.
  • Pros: Comfortable Design, Fast Film Loading, Fingertip Controls, Reliable Operation, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Totally Impressed - Awesome Film Camera

Ted Clutter, B&H Photo
30 November 2013
  • Excerpt: The apex of film cameras that works with all modern flash units and lenses, VR included. Heavy, yes... does it inspire confidence? Definitely. The menus are a little obtuse at first, but once everything is set, you will rarely have to go back to them. This camera just does not get in the way. It is making my sojourn back to black and white film a pure pleasure, a fitting camera as a mate to my Nikon D4. Get one while they last! AND PLEASE... Don't say "Film is Dead.

Sometimes the old way is better

Old Marine, B&H Photo
21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this for one reason and one reason only; To shoot B&W. I'm tired of the fifty shades of gray(but no true black)you get when converting digital. It took me three times longer to learn than my old F3, but this camera is truly apleasure to own and work with.

A Great Film Camera

RexP, B&H Photo
11 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera because I still use film and have a personal darkroom in which to express my creativity. I already own the F100 which is a great camera in its own right, but the F6 is on a different level. The camera feels solid in your hands and is very easy to hold. I find that the custom settings further personalize the camera to my individual taste.
