“Nikon v Canon v Pentax”

published 16/07/2002

ProCheapest SLR ith the best range of features

ConsPlastic and light feel lets it down

I have always had an interest in photography, and had built up a good collection or equipment based around my Canon 1000FN camera. This camera served me well over 8 years, but when the biggest of my two lenses broke I felt it was time for change into the digital age. I don’t have that much...

I have owned this camera for a good 4 years now and is had been the best Film SLR I have come across yet.

“Superb First SLR”

published 28/12/2007

ProEase of Use, Features, Quality

ConsOld

An excellent introduction to SLR Photography. This camera has all the capabilities of more expensive Nikons but without the hefty price tag. To start with, the quality of prints you get from the F65 is superb. Colours are beautifully matched and the focus, even on Automatic, is excellent. The...

Not for me

published 05/03/2008

Cheap plastic horrible inconsequential feel. OK functionality but not remarkable. Back always break because catch integral and snaps off too easily. The F60 is better, more or less same functioanlity, and more solid feel also has a faster sync speed (125) and wont let you mis-sink your shot like the F65. The F65 should have been a free give away with a Litre of petrol. How this got in to your top 10 beggers belief. As for the plastic bottle standard lens, don't make me cringe any more.

“Nikon F65 or Cannon EOS 300”

published 23/08/2001

ProGreat Canera good value for money

ConsNone

My wife bought me the Nikon F65 for my birthday, for the uninitiated in cameras it is an "entry level" as they call it SLR (Single lens Reflex) camera. The only real competitor in the market to it is the Canon EOS 300. After a great deal of deliberation, by me not the wife, she was just...

Hi, ultimately I have got this camera from my mom. It's simply excellent. I can't express when I read the specifications holding the sexy model into my hands. I compared with all other SLR models with same NIKON and other brands with my friends. They simply replied that I have got the best one. I...

ProLovely Lightweight Camera

ConsTook a while getting to learn all the conponants

I have been into photography for most of my life, infact I started out venturing and dabbling with cameras, almost as long as I started to walk. I started out with a small kodak 126 given me to play with by my mother when I was a toddler! This is what really astarted me off in photography. .. My...

“Starter SLR”

published 19/04/2004

ProExcellent starter SLR

ConsLack of fancy settings

This model is an excellent starter SLR for the money. This was my first SLR and it was a great model to learn on. I was given it as a birthday present to get me started. You can just point and click on the automatic setting and then gradually learn about all the manual settings. The manual is...

This is a fantastic camera for the first time SLR buyer. It comes with an instruction manual almost the size of the camera, and you can be snapping away within five minutes of opening the box.
