I may order another one from the list after I read the description better.

The weight of it in my hand, the general function, which seem fairly consistent with Nikon, and a pretty good medium lens.

If you want to get into film photography cheaply, this is a great way to do it.

If you're one of the hold-outs who still prefer 35mm photography to digital, you can't do much better than Nikon's N6006 camera. You'll find you have crystal clear, professional quality photos across the board.

As any serious photographer knows, for professional quality photos point and shoot just doesn't make the grade. You need an SLR to get the job done. This camera is compatible with a broad range of lenses, filters, and other accessories in order to allow you to take the best photos regardless of conditions. There are several autofocus settings, with manual overrides for when you want to give things the personal touch.

Overall, a great camera!

I agree with the previous reviewer. I have a couple of Nikon digital SLRs, but was feeling nostalgic and wanted to try film, chemicals, and waiting. I got an N6006 and it is very similar to my Nikon DSLRs. It takes great pictures too.

I ended up with 2 of these. I inherited one from my dad-he bought it new back in 1994. And I bought another for my sister for a photography class she was supposed to take, and didn't take. The N6006 is one of the less desirable film bodies nowadays. You should be able to get one in good working order for under 50usd. It has many good features. In the mid 80's Nikon starting making lesser expensive bodies that do not meter with manual focus lenses-the 6006 does. You get matrix, center weighted, and spot metering-minus matrix with manual lenses. The shutter speed range is 1/2000-30 seconds and bulb. The shutter speeds are in 1 stop increments, and I kinda have a problem with that. I'm used to 1/3 stop increments of the newer Nikons. There's manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, and program exposure modes. With manual lenses you only get manual and aperture priority-that's all I use anyway. The 6006 accepts the very inexpensive cable release-no need to buy an expensive dedicated electronic remote release. It has a self timer that is adjustable from 2-30 seconds. There's single, continuous low, and continuous high drive modes. But it's a little on the slow side-about 2 or 2.5 frames per second in high.

**The battery for these can be expensive-I paid 15 for the first one at a drugstore chain. But I found a lithium battery for it at an electronics store for $5. Not the kind of electronics store like a Best Buy, but a do it yourself store. The kind of store that sells computer parts and other components for those do it yourself build projects.

If you want to do some 35mm film photography without having to spend much $$$, get the 6006 and a couple of cheap Nikon mount lenses for it. -----I've seen low ratings for cameras in reviews because they didn't come with a lens.

I bought this camera because I had always wanted to learn photography, and this was a fraction of the price of comparable (SLR) digital cameras. After a couple months of playing with it I was actually able to take a photography class at my college, and the class required we use film. I fell in love with the camera. The weight of it in my hand, the general function, which seem fairly consistent with Nikon, and a pretty good medium lens. There's just something I find fun and visceral about loading film into it. Even though I'm now buying a digital SLR, I will keep this camera and continue to use it, just for the pleasure of using it. If you're looking for a less expensive camera of quality, or if you're nostalgic and want to shoot film, or if you need a 35mm camera for a class, this is an excellent choice, and a pretty easy and fun camera to learn on.

Nikon N6006 = The best bang for your buck
I've been shooting with the Nikon N6006 for about three years now after I got it for free!
I passed on the camera to my girlfriend and when she broke it I bought a new one on amazon for dirt cheap.
This camera takes pictures on the same level as the recent DSLR the Canon T3i, if not better. Only with film.

PROS:
- Intelligent auto-focus
- Wide compatibility and availability of a variety of lenses
- Very easy to use and sturdy camera (does not feel flimsy)
- Cheap $$ and cheap $$ accessories

CONS:
- Paying for film
- Paying to develop film

This is a great camera. If you want to get into film photography cheaply, this is a great way to do it. This is a high quality camera and will take great pictures. Buy a cheap lens for this and you'll have a great machine for less than $50. Nice!

Camera works well.
It's in a working condition.
I use the lens that I came with my nikon d3100 digital camera on this film one.
I'm glad it worked out for me.
