|I went with the Nikkor 1.4X TC since I had VR lenses and for the VR function to work I had to use Nikkor Teleconverters...|

|I use the converter on a Nikon 300mm vr and it works great images are as sharp as the lens alone. I bought this for my Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR. Focus is quick and pics are sharp even wide open. I would recommend this over the TC-1.7 which I also own. Works very well with D90 + 70-200/2.8 VR. Bright, quick focus, nice bokeh, and still sharper than my other zooms without a converter.|

Camera shake is likely to occur when the camera is not held steady or with slow shutter speed. The built-in Speedlight automatically fires in dark conditions (where slow shutter speed is required) in a or Vari-Program (except for d and g) with this camera but always remember to hold the camera correctly.
Compose frame, centre focus brackets on your subject, and focus by lightly pressing the shutter release button.
Compose frame so that the subject to be focused is located closest at any of five focus areas and lightly press the shutter release button. When the Dynamic AF Mode with Closest-Subject Priority (pages 26, 47) is set, camera automatically maintains focus on the subject located closest to any of five focus areas. Lightly pressing the shutter release button automatically focuses the camera on the subject and when the subject is in focus, that focus area is highlighted with Vari-Brite display (p. 9), beep sound is emitted and / appears in the viewfinder.
When the subject is dark or backlit and the shutter release button is lightly pressed, the builtin Speedlight automatically pops up in a or VariProgram (except in d or g). See page 38 for details.
NOTE: Composing frame
The F75/F75Ds viewfinder frame shows approximately 89% of the image actually exposed on the film frame. Therefore, the actual exposed frame is somewhat larger than the image you see through the viewfinder. Note that the edges of a negative film are partially cropped by most labs.
Confirm that / (in-focus indicator) appears in the viewfinder, then slowly, fully depress the shutter release button. With a moving subject, Continuous Servo AF (page 44) activates and camera continuously focuses on the subject.
Film starts to rewind automatically when the last shot is taken.
Confirm indications in the viewfinder while lightly pressing the shutter release button.
o, o, o, and then o is displayed during film rewind.
When the subject is dark or backlit and shutter release button is lightly pressed, the built-in Speedlight automatically pops up and starts charging (pages 38, 95).
Confirm that film is completely rewound, then remove film cartridge.
Confirm that focus indicator / appears and slowly depress the shutter release button.
Film is completely rewound when the frame counter shows blinking E in the LCD panel and in the viewfinder. (E appears without blinking and disappears when the exposure meter is off.) Make sure the film is completely rewound (E and are blinking), open the camera back away from sunlight and remove the film cartridge. 2 : Warning indications in the viewfinder can be set not to appear (p. 74).
s: Portrait mode
Use this mode whenever you are taking pictures of people. It creates a blurred background to accentuate your main subject. 85mm to 200mm telephoto lenses with large maximum apertures are recommended. Distancing the main subject and the background emphasises the effect.
Set the exposure mode dial to the desired Vari-Program, then lightly press the shutter release button.
d: Landscape mode
Centre the focus brackets on your subject (where you want the focus) and lightly press the shutter release button. Lightly pressing the shutter release button automatically focuses the camera on the subject and when the subject is in focus, that focus area is highlighted with Vari-Brite display (p. 9), beep sound is emitted and / appears in the viewfinder. When / is blinking in the viewfinder, the camera is unable to focus using autofocus. Use this mode whenever youre taking a picture of a distant scene. The overall picture, whether the subject is near or far, is sharply focused. It also allows you to capture the beauty of nighttime or twilight scenes. Built-in Speedlight does not fire even when the subject is dark or backlit. In some shooting situations, especially shooting night scenes, slow shutter speed is selected. To avoid camera shake, use a tripod. Use of self-timer or remote control also helps to avoid camera shake. A wide-angle lens is suited to capturing a wide view of the landscape.
Shutter speed and aperture are automatically determined to suit the selected VariProgram and are displayed in the LCD panel and viewfinder. When the subject is dark or backlit, the built-in Speedlight automatically pops up and fires (except in d or g). Flexible Program (page 55), Auto Exposure Bracketing (page 66) and Multiple Exposure (page 69) cannot be performed in Vari-Program. When using the flash in Vari-Program, available Flash Sync modes differ with each program (page 96).
Shooting with Vari-Programcontinued
f: Close-Up mode
Use this mode when you are taking pictures up close. It creates a blurred background to accentuate your main subject. Useful in taking close-ups of subjects such as flowers or insects. Dynamic AF Mode with Centre-Subject Priority and centre focus area are automatically selected (page 46) even when the AF Area mode is set to Dynamic AF Mode with Closest-Subject Priority. In some shooting situations, slow shutter speed is selected. To avoid camera shake, use a tripod. Use of self-timer or remote control also helps to avoid camera shake. Effect is maximised at minimum focusing distance of the lens in use. When using a zoom lens, use telephoto zoom position. For more professional uses, Micro-Nikkor lenses are recommended.
Dynamic AF Mode with Closest-Subject Priority is useful when you want the camera to take automatic control over focus operations, or when shooting a moving subject. Dynamic AF Mode is useful in achieving focus on a particular part of a subject, or when the composition of the photograph is your top priority.
Rotate AF Area mode selector to select AF Area mode.
When the focus mode is set to AF (autofocus), Dynamic AF Mode with Closest-Subject Priority is selected with the AF Area mode selector set to S (except in f Vari-Program, p. 36), Dynamic AF Mode with Centre-Subject Priority is selected with the AF Area mode selector set to D, and Dynamic AF Mode with the AF Area mode selector set to A. When the focus mode is set to M (manual focus), Centre Area Mode is selected with the AF Area mode selector set to either S or D, and Single Area Mode with the AF Area mode selector set to A. All five focus areas are displayed in the LCD panel when Dynamic AF Mode with Closest-Subject Priority is selected. When a subject is in-focus, focus brackets located at in-focus subject is highlighted momentarily with the Vari-Brite display (p. 9) in the viewfinder.
When focus mode is set to Manual
S/D: Centre Area Mode Focus is obtained only at the centre focus area when the AF Area mode selector is set to either S or D and when using the manual focus. Centre focus area is highlighted with the Vari-Brite display (p. 9). A: Single Area Mode Focus is obtained only at the selected focus area when using the manual focus. Selected focus area is highlighted with the Vari-Brite display (p. 9).
Focus Area Selection
This cameras five focus areas cover a wide frame area, and you can select among them, depending on the subjects position in the frame or your desired composition. They reliably provide sharp focus without use of focus lock (page 52). Check points
When exposure mode is set to a or Vari-Program in autofocus, turning the power switch off and on again resets the focus area to the centre. When exposure mode is set to P, S, A or M, or in manual focus, selected focus area remains. When exposure mode is changed within a and any of Vari-Program, or changed to a or Vari-Program from P, S, A or M in auto focus, focus area resets to the centre. When exposure mode is changed within P, S, A and M in autofocus, or in manual focus, selected focus area remains. Select the focus area while exposure meter is on. Focus area cannot be selected when exposure meter is off.
Set the AF Area mode selector to A.
Dynamic AF Mode is selected with the focus mode set to autofocus, and Single Area mode is selected with the focus mode set to manual. Focus Area selector is locked and focus area cannot be selected when AF Area mode other than A is selected.
Lightly press the shutter release button and press the focus area selector up/down/right/ left to change the focus area toward the corresponding direction. Selected focus area is highlighted with the Vari-Brite display (p. 9). Selected focus area is also indicated in the LCD panel.
Press the focus area selector to select a focus area.
When the subject is dark and the shutter release button is pressed lightly, the cameras AF-Assist Illuminator automatically turns on and enables autofocus operation in a dark environment. NOTE: Lenses incompatible with AF-Assist Illuminator
Autofocus using the cameras AF-Assist Illuminator cannot be performed with following lenses at a shooting distance within 1m due to vignetting. AF Micro 200mm f/4 IF-ED AF-S 17-35mm f/2.8 ED AF 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5 ED AF 20-35mm f/2.8 IF AF 24-85mm f/2.8-4 IF AF 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6 IF AF Micro 70-180mm f/4.5-5.6 ED Autofocus using the cameras AF-Assist Illuminator cannot be performed with following lens at a shooting distance within 1.5m at telephoto due to vignetting. AF-S 28-70mm f/2.8 IF-ED at 70mm (usable at approx. 1m or longer shooting distance at wideangle)
AF-Assist Illuminator automatically turns on in the following situations: Focus mode is autofocus, AF Nikkor lens is used, subject is dark and centre focus area is selected or Dynamic AF Mode with Closest-Subject Priority is activated. AF-Assist Illuminator does not turn on in d or g. Focal length of the usable AF Nikkor lens is 24200mm. The distance range of the AF-Assist Illuminator is approx. 0.5-3m. Autofocus using the cameras AFAssist Illuminator cannot be performed due to vignetting with some lenses at a shooting distance less than 1m (page 51). When the optional Speedlight with AF-Assist Illuminator is attached and the conditions for the AF-Assist Illumination are met, the AF-Assist Illuminator of the optional Speedlight automatically turns on. With other optional Speedlights, the cameras Illuminator turns on (page 109). 12 : AF-Assist Illuminator can be cancelled (p. 76).
NOTE: Continuous use of the AF-Assist Illuminator
When the AF-Assist Illuminator is used continuously, illumination is limited temporarily to protect the firing tube. The illumination restarts after a few moments. Also, when the AF-Assist Illuminator is used repeatedly in a short period of time, be careful not to touch the AF-Assist Illuminator lamp because it may become hot.
Autofocus using the cameras AF-Assist Illuminator cannot be performed with following lenses due to vignetting. AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8 IF-ED AF 80-200mm f/2.8 ED AF VR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 ED
Set the exposure mode dial to S.
Aperture-Priority Auto Exposure Mode
A: Aperture-Priority Auto
Enables you to set the desired aperture (lens minimum to maximum) manually. The camera automatically selects a shutter speed suitable for correct exposure.
A (Aperture-Priority Auto) can only be used with a CPU Nikkor lens such as G- or D-type Nikkor (page 104). In flash photography, varying the aperture changes the flash shooting distance (page 98).
Set the aperture (lens minimum to maximum) by rotating the Command Dial.
Small aperture f/32
When the subject is too dark or too bright, one of the following warning indications will appear in the viewfinder and LCD panel. (Over- or underexposure value is indicated with the electronic analogue exposure display in the viewfinder.) HI: Select smaller aperture (larger f-number). If the warning indication remains on, use an ND filter (optional). Lo: Select larger aperture (smaller f-number). If the warning indication remains on, use the Speedlight. If the subject is too dark or backlit, the flash recommended indication blinks in the viewfinder when you lightly press the shutter release button. Use the Speedlight (pages 95/107).
By varying the aperture, and thus controlling the depth of field (page 102), you can sharpen the background and foreground, or blur the background. Large aperture f/2.8 Overexposure
Set the exposure mode dial to A.
Manual Exposure Mode
Enables you to set both shutter speed (-[Time] and 30-1/2000 sec.) and aperture (lens minimum to maximum) manually.
Non-CPU lenses (page 106) can only be used in Manual exposure mode.
With electronic analogue exposure display in the viewfinder, you can produce various creative effects by adjusting the exposure. Long Time exposure (Time) can be set in Manual exposure mode.
Set the shutter speed and aperture while checking the electronic analogue exposure display in the viewfinder.
Set the shutter speed (-- [Time] and 30-1/2000 sec.) by rotating the Command Dial and aperture (minimum to maximum) by rotating the Command Dial while pressing the Q aperture button. The electronic analogue display in the viewfinder indicates the difference between the selected exposure (shutter speed and aperture) and the correct exposure. The electronic analogue exposure display blinks when the subject brightness is beyond the cameras exposure range. (Electronic analogue exposure display is not available with Long Time exposure.) The following examples show electronic analogue exposure display indications: Over 2 EV +1 EV Correct exposure 1/2 EV
Set the exposure mode dial to M.
Metering system automatically switches to Centre-Weighted from Matrix in Manual exposure mode. When a non-CPU Nikkor lens is attached, -appears in the LCD panel and viewfinder. Set/confirm aperture with the lens aperture ring. Cameras exposure meter cannot be used. See page 106 for details.
Centre-Weighted Metering places special emphasis on brightness within the 12mm-diameter circle in the viewfinder and is thus useful for basing exposure on a specific area of the scene.
Under 2 EV
Compose picture, focus and shoot.
If the subject is too dark or backlit, the flash recommended indication blinks in the viewfinder when you lightly press the shutter release button. Use the Speedlight (pages 95/107).
Long Time Exposure
Long Time (Time) exposure of more than 30 sec.
When the exposure mode dial is set to M (Manual), set the shutter speed indication to -- (next after 30 sec.) to set Long Time (Time) exposure. Depress the shutter release button once to open the shutter, then press the shutter release button again to close the shutter. This function is useful for shooting nighttime scenes or stars.
This section features descriptions of operations using the F75/F75Ds advanced functions.
In Long Time exposure, camera shake can be reduced by using the Self-Timer (page 40) or Remote Control (page 84) and tripod.
Set the exposure mode dial to M and rotate the Command Dial to set the shutter speed indication to --. Rotate the Command Dial while pressing the Q aperture button to set the aperture.
Exposure Compensation Auto Exposure Bracketing Multiple Exposure
Depressing the shutter release button once opens the shutter and the self-timer lamp flickers slightly during Long Time (Time) exposure. -- and other indications such as aperture are displayed in the LCD panel, but all the indications turn off in the viewfinder.

Usable Optional Speedlightscontinued
An optional Speedlight, i.e. SB-80DX, SB-50DX, SB-30, SB-28/28DX, SB-27, SB-23 or SB-22s can be attached directly to the accessory shoe of the F75/F75D without a cord. This accessory shoe is equipped with a safety lock which prevents accidental drop when a Speedlight with a safetylock pin (SB-80DX, SB-30, SB-28/28DX, SB-27, SB-26, SB-25 or SB-22s) is attached. Remove accessory shoe cover when attaching an optional Speedlight to the accessory shoe.
Notes on using optional Speedlights
See your Speedlight manual for details. If the camera groups are defined in the manual of the Speedlight with TTL Auto Flash, see the section for camera group I. Flash sync speed is 1/90 sec. or slower when using an optional Speedlight. Available film speeds for TTL Auto Flash are ISO 25 to ISO 800. When Red-Eye Reduction or Red-Eye Reduction with Slow Sync is set on a camera attached with the Speedlight with Red-Eye Reduction function, the Red-Eye Reduction lamp of the Speedlight lights up. With other Speedlights without Red-Eye Reduction function, the Red-Eye Reduction lamp of the camera body lights up. When optional Speedlight with AF-Assist Illuminator, SB-80DX, 50DX, 28/28DX, 27, 26, 25 or 24, is attached, the AF-Assist Illuminator of the optional Speedlight emits light when the focus mode is set to AF, an AF Nikkor lens is attached, the subject is dark and centre focus area is selected or Dynamic AF Mode with Closest-Subject Priority is activated. With other optional Speedlights, the AF-Assist Illuminator on the camera emits light. Set the exposure mode to Aperture-Priority Auto or Manual to take flash pictures with flash mode other than TTL auto (non-TTL auto or manual).

With the SB-26, 25 or 24, when Slow Sync is set on the camera body in h, RearCurtain Sync is performed if Rear-Curtain Sync is set on the Speedlight. With the SB-26, 25 or 24, when Red-Eye Reduction or Red-Eye Reduction with Slow Sync is set on the camera body, Speedlight performs Red-Eye Reduction or Red-Eye Reduction with Slow Sync even if Rear-Curtain Sync is set on the Speedlight.
Eyepiece correction lenses
Eyepiece correction lenses enable near- or far-sighted photographers to adjust the eyepiece dioptre to suit their vision, and can be attached easily by inserting onto the viewfinder eyepiece. Nine optional eyepiece correction lenses provide viewfinder dioptre settings of 5, 4, 3, 2, 0, +0.5, +1, +2 and +3m1 (combined dioptre with setting on camera body). We recommend that you actually look through the viewfinder with various correction lenses attached before making a purchase, since viewfinder dioptre differs from one person to another. Use the optional eyepiece correction lens when you need eyepiece correction over 1.5 to +0.8m1 that can be adjusted using the F75/F75Ds dioptre adjustment lever. The rubber eyecup cannot be used together with the eyepiece correction lenses.
A wide variety of AF lenseswideangle, telephoto, zoom, Micro or DC (Defocus image Control)is available for the F75/F75D.
Soft case (CF-63)
Camera case CF-63 is available for this camera. The camera body fits inside the case with AF 28-80mm f/3.3-5.6G or smaller lens attached.
Braid-type AN-4B (black) and AN-4Y (yellow), wide braid-type AN-6Y (yellow) and AN-6W (burgundy) neckstraps are available. Handstrap AH-4 helps you hold the camera firmly and easily, and shoot in quickmotion.
Cleaning camera body
Use a blower brush to remove dirt and dust from the camera body and clean it with a soft, clean cloth. After using the camera near seawater, wipe the camera body with a soft, clean cloth slightly moistened with pure water to remove salt, and then dry it with a dry cloth. NEVER use organic solvents like thinner or benzene. They may damage the camera.
Remove the batteries and store the camera with a desiccant
If you do not intend to use the camera for a long time, remove the batteries to protect the camera from battery leakage. In a humid environment, store the camera inside a plastic bag with a desiccant to keep out dust, moisture and salt. Note, however, that storing leather cases in vinyl bags may cause the leather to deteriorate. Keep the batteries in a cool, dry place away from heat or humidity. Change the desiccant occasionally since it does not absorb moisture effectively after a while. Leaving the camera unused for a long period of time may cause mould to grow and result in malfunction. Turn the power on and release the shutter a few times once per month. To maintain the built-in Speedlight in peak condition, fire it a few times every month. This will enable you to use the flash for many years.
Turn the camera power off when changing batteries
Turn the camera power off before changing batteries and insert the batteries with and ends positioned correctly. Stains on the battery poles may cause lack of contact. Wipe the batteries well with a dry cloth before installing. M blinks (appears without blinking when exposure meter is off) o, M and frame counter blink

Turn the power off and replace batteries with new ones.
Use fresh batteries at low temperatures
Battery power diminishes at extremely low temperatures and the camera may not function properly with old batteries. Use a fresh set of batteries at low temperatures, keep spare batteries warm, and use them alternately. Film advance speed lowers and number of usable film rolls becomes less at low temperatures. However, battery power may recover when the temperature returns to normal.

CPU Central Processing Unit. The electronic component that controls an electronic products functions. AF Nikkor (including G- and D-type AF Nikkor) and AI-P-Nikkor lenses have built-in CPUs. Depth of Field See the column on page 102. EV Exposure Value: A number representing the available combinations of shutter speeds and apertures that give the same exposure effect under conditions of similar scene brightness and ISO. At ISO 100, the combination of a one-second shutter speed and an aperture of f/1.4 is defined as EV1. The camera can be used only within the EV range of the exposure meter. For example, with the F75/F75D, the exposure metering range is from EV1 to EV20 at ISO 100 with an f/1.4 lens. Exposure See the column on page 32. Exposure bracketing Shooting the same subject a number of times at a range of different exposures to attain proper exposure. Three shots with metered EV, under EV, and over EV exposure are performed in that order with the F75/F75D. Automatic exposure bracketing is performed with varied shutter speeds and/or apertures. Exposure Compensation In a situation such as when your subject is strongly backlit, exposure compensation enables you to intentionally compensate the standard exposure value measured by the camera to create a desired effect. Exposure compensation of 3 EV to +3 EV in 1/2 steps is available with the F75/F75D. Flash shooting distance range The distance range over which a flash can effectively provide light. Flash shooting distance range is controlled by the amount of flash output available. Each automatic Speedlights flash output varies from maximum duration to minimum duration. Close-up subjects will require lower (to minimum) output, while more distant subjects will require more light up to the maximum output. The flash shooting distance range varies with the aperture, film speed, etc. Flash synchronisation Timing of the flash so it coincides with release of the cameras shutter. There are two types of synchronisation: Front-Curtain Sync, which fires the flash at the start of the exposure, and Rear-Curtain Sync, which fires the flash at the end of the exposure. Flash sync speed Shutter speed at which the entire film frame is exposed when the flash is fired in flash shooting. The F75/F75Ds flash sync speed is 1/90 sec. or slower.
