Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. F6

Question

Can you use infrared film in this camera? I ask this because high end canon film cameras can not due to an infrared counter in the camera.

Please be careful with your response. I need Nikon to be sure I can before I purchase it. I am an avid infrared photographer.

See page 7 of the F6 manual for a diagram of the camera body that shows the location of the film confirmation window. A copy of the F6 manual can be found at this URL:

Looking at the rear of the camera, it is the small window to the left of the LCD monitor. Just cover it up with a piece of black electrical tape.

answer 4
Yes, infrared film can be used in the Nikon F6 SLR. For more information see this link on Nikonusa.com:
http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans...

When using infrared film on this camera it is recommended that you cover the 'film confirmation window' with duct or electrical tape to prevent fogging of the infrared film.

Question

E lens compatibilty

Is the Nikon F6 compatible with the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens? This lens comes-up as compatible with the F6 in the results of the "search by camera" feature of the lens section of the Nikon website. However, I have also heard that it won't work with film cameras.

Thanks!

The lens may work but your F6 including a few DSLR's cannot take advantage of the E. I would say it is not fully compatible with your F6.
