From the Manufacturer
Designed for budding photographers who want to advance their creative potential, the Nikon N75 autofocus SLR camera integrates sophisticated new advanced technology with Nikon's intuitive design. The N75 offers an extensive set of new and intelligent features, including an easy-to-access three-mode focus area selector switch, an all-new 25-segment matrix metering system, 12 custom functions, and three cleverly engineered Dynamic Autofocus modes that ensure crisp, sharp pictures.
A large mode dial and easy-to-view LCD panel ensure easy access to exposure modes, including Auto and five Vari-Program modes, for point-and-shoot operation with professional results. A built-in Speedlight automatically pops up and fires flash when light is low or the subject is in backlighting.
The N75 also features creative exposure control functions like Auto Exposure Bracketing, Exposure Compensation, Multiple Exposure and more. In addition, New On-Screen Battery/Film Indicators in the viewfinder show battery power and film supply status.
The N75's five AF sensors cover a wide area, both horizontally and vertically, and it offers three modes to control the focus area selection, including closest subject priority and center subject priority. The camera allows for easier framing by placing the Focus Area Selector switch conveniently next to the right-hand thumb so that, even while taking pictures, you can adjust focus area selection.
In addition to measuring the brightness and contrast of a particular scene, Nikon's exclusive 25-segment 3D matrix meter also analyzes complex exposure and lighting conditions, comparing it with an on-board database of picture-taking information that is built upon more than 30,000 actual scenes stored in the camera.

Quality of pictures, for the price, is stunning, and in the line-up of entry-to-medium level SLRs this is definitely the one to choose (for example, auto-focus speed beats Canon equivalent hands down; Canon Rebel 300 - marketed outside US as Canon EOS 300 - also looks decidedly like a cheap compact camera with a big lens on top).
For many, many users (including myself) it will provide all the advanced functions that they will ever want. Pricier "professional" cameras like N80 are of course more robust and may have a few extra features or even faster AF, but the difference in price will be so significant that you will have to be a heavy user to make a more expensive camera pay for itself.
The only reservation about N75 is the size: Nikon tried to make this camera as small as possible, which makes it more agreeable for delicate hands (or so they think). For someone like me, a person with bigger paws, it does not feel right - it is just not chunky enough to provide a good grip: a lightweight camera it might be, but still it is no compact thing which you could put in your shirt pocket. This is an important consideration: all the good features will bring you no joy if you feel awkward holding the camera in your hands.
I bought this camera last August after doing a lot of research both online and in magazines like Popular Photography. All the reviews raved about it, and boy, were they true! It's a wonderful camera for both the starting amateur (you can just set it on the Auto mode, and all you need to do then is point and shoot!) and the more serious amateur (you can make the camera all-manual by selecting the corresponding mode, or do speed-priority and aperture-priority). Still life and close-up enthusiasts will definitely enjoy the depth-of-field preview button, and everyone will benefit from Nikon's great series of lenses. One note there: this camera works with the Nikon "G" series lenses, which have no aperture ring -- aperture is set electronically from within the camera.
While I have exposed only a very few rolls of film with this camera yet, I have a friend who took hers to Norway, shooting in low-light conditions, from speeding boats, buses and what not, entirely in the point-and-shoot AUTO mode -- and the snaps look absolutely brilliant! Hats off to the light-metering system, which is better than on similar Canon Rebels etc.
There is one point to note however: while this SLR kit comes with the 28-80mm G nikkor lens, I bought a different kit, which had the 28-100mm G lens. I find the extra zoom of that lens makes it even better if you want to survive on a one-lens-only basis. The other lens I want to buy soon (since I'm somewhat interested in bird photography) is the 70-300mm nikkor G lens.Read more ›
I mainly wanted to write this review to debunk the 'error' a previous reviewer was complaining about. They really should read the owner's manual... The 'film not loaded error icon' that they are talking about is used in two ways on this camera. If when you first load the film, something goes wrong, this will blink to indicate the film was not loaded correctly. The second use is as a 'low-film' indicator. When you're looking through the viewfinder, this light will blink when you hit 5 exposures left. It's obviously meant to let you know you're getting close to the end of your film, so you don't miss that 'perfect shot' due to running our of film. The fact that the reviewer went through several of these cameras, and never figured this out astounds me. I've never had to contact Nikon support, but I would hope that the support person I got would be a little more knowledgeable than the people she talked too...
Overall, if you're looking to get started with an SLR, you can't go wrong with this camera. I would, however, suggest that you visit your local Ritz (or equivilent camera shop) to hold onto the camera, and compare it to a few others. I was all set to buy a Canon Rebel Ti, based soley on reviews - until I went to the shop. It just felt wrong in my hands, where the Nikon felt perfect. It's all a matter of personal preferrence, so you'll want to make sure you're getting the right one.Read more ›
