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!

I have heard that the E Lens will only work at maximum aperture with the F6. There is no mechanical linkage from the lens to the body, and the F6 doesn't have the firmware to fully communicate with the lens, thus no way to change aperture.

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.

The F6 is not a starter camera. May I suggest that you start with a digital camera which will prove to be less expensive to operate- especially for a beginner. Also, it will be helpful for you to find a camera that allows for manual settings so that you can experiment with ISO, exposure times and lens apertures.
