This eBook is the definitive
N65 and F65 instruction guide.


This eBook helps you master the use of the N65 (also covers the F65, N65QD and F65QD models), with a full description of the camera features and lots of useful tips and background information. This is the work that should have been the manual! A must-read for any N65 user.

  • Nikon metering and autofocus modes explained in plain English! Wonder what the matrix metering pattern looks like and how it works? Can't figure out Dynamic autofocus, Release Priority, Focus Priority, Closest Focus Priority, and a host of other terms used to describe features of the focusing system? Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon N65 explains these terms and accompanying techniques in the same simple, no-nonsense language that made his Nikon Field Guide a best seller.
  • Learn new tricks! Did you know that you can use the internal flash at dedicated fill levels, even though the camera doesn't have built-in flash exposure compensation? The book fully explains this and many, many more tips that aren't even touched upon in the original Nikon manuals.
  • Includes three useful spreadsheets! You'll also receive Thom's Excel workbooks for macro, flash, and lens calculators (know how to calculate the GN of multiple flashes or the effective GN when bouncing the flash off the ceiling? You will if buy this book!).
