By that time the F90X had been replaced by the F, the digital replacements of this line of cameras includes the D, D, D s and D Build Quality and Handling: The build quality of the F90X is exceptional, and is comparable to the build quality of cameras like the D and D It has a number of seals to protect the camera from dust and moisture. It also features a tough metallic chassis, under the rubber grip and industrial strength plastic cover. The handling of the camera is similar to current semi-pro models, although it is not as refined as the current models.

However, you can set your own custom reset options rather than use the factury default settings. Then press the two buttons once again. Setting the Film Advance Mode Hold down the drive button on the top left of the camera while rotating the command dial until the desired setting appears on the LCD panel: [s in box] Single Frame—Press the shutter once for each exposure.

The fastest rate for autofocus tracking is 4. Loading Film 1. Open the camera back using the two camera back releases on the left side of the camera body. Insert the film cartridge into the film chamber. Pull the film leader across to the red index mark in take-up area. Remove slack from the film leader so that it lies flat. Close the camera back.

Press the shutter release; the camera automatically advances film to the first frame. Setting the Metering Method Hold down the matrix button on the left top of camera while rotating the command dial until the desired setting appears on the LCD panel: Matrix — 8-segment evaluative metering is used. With D-type lenses, the focusing distance is also taken into account.

Setting the Focus Mode Move the focus mode selector on the front of the camera, on the lower left, to: S Single Servo AF—Uses focus-priority shutter cannot be released until focus is achieved. C Continuous Servo AF—Uses release priority shutter can be released whether or not focus is achieved.

Focus is continuously updated while the release button is pressed halfway. Focus is locked if the AF-L button is held down. M Manual Focus—Electronic confirmation symbols appear in the viewfinder. The camera reverts to your setting when you turn the Speedlight off or detach it. A Aperture-Priority—You choose the aperture, the camera sets the shutter speed. M Manual—You choose both the aperture and shutter speed. Or, Hold down the Ps button on the top left of the camera while rotating the command dial until the desired vari-program symbol appears on the LCD panel: PO Portrait mode—Sets a wide aperture to minimize depth of field.

RE Portrait mode with red-eye reduction—Same as portrait mode, except sets flash to red-eye reduction. XF Hyperfocal mode—Sets a slow shutter speed and a narrow aperture to get subject and background in focus; does not set hyperfocal distance!

A tripod is recommended. LA Landscape mode—Virtually the same as XF, but intended for landscapes without a foreground subject. SL Silhouette mode—Underexposes the foreground subject; background should be 2 EV brighter to work effectively. SP Sport mode—Sets a program that is biased towards a fast shutter speed. To cancel these programs, hold down the mode button and set a regular exposure mode P, S, A, or M. To shift the program, turn the command dial until the desired shutter speed-aperture combination is displayed on the LCD panel and viewfinder displays.

After the shutter has been released, flexible program is cancelled. Locking Exposure 1. Use center-weighted or spot metering on an appropriate area. Note: Although you can lock exposure settings using any metering mode, this function is most useful for metering on a very specific area.

Center-weighted or spot metering modes offer the most control. Lightly press the shutter release. Example: Meter white snow and compensate by adding 2 stops of exposure. Without compensation, the meter sets exposure as though every subject were neutral gray.

A white subject is 2 stops brighter than neutral gray, therefore the exposure needs to be adjusted accordingly. Setting the Self-Timer 1.

Hold down the self timer button on the top left of the camera, and rotate the command dial to set the duration of the delay in seconds ranges from 2 to 30 seconds. Close the eyepiece shutter with the switch to the left of the eyepiece. Hold down the o button and press the shutter release. The LED on the front of the camera blinks until the last 2 seconds prior to exposure, at which time it lights continuously. If the camera is set for single servo AF S , the self-timer will not start until focus is achieved.

If the subject moves after the self-timer has begun counting down, the subject will be out of focus. To cancel the countdown after the shutter release has been pressed, press the o button again before the shutter is fired. Setting a Bulb Exposure 1.

Hold down the mode button and rotate the command dial to select manual M exposure mode. Rotate the command dial again to set bulb shutter speed BVLB. Set the desired aperture on the lens. Press the shutter release for the duration of the exposure. Setting Rear-Curtain Sync 1. To select a specific shutter speed, set the camera to shutter-priority S or manual M exposure mode. In multi-program P and aperture-priority A mode, slow sync is set automatically. Rear-curtain sync can also be used in auto and manual flash modes, however only in A or M exposure modes.

Note: Rear-curtain sync cannot be set with vari-program modes or used in conjunction with red-eye reduction. Setting Slow-Sync Flash 1. Make sure the camera is set to multi-program P or aperture-priority A exposure mode. Manual and auto flash modes can also be used. A tripod is recommended to prevent camera shake.

It is automatically set in Portrait program with red-eye reduction Ps with RE. It cannot be set in any other vari-program. Changing the Focusing Screen 1. Turn the camera off. Remove the lens. The latch is in the middle of the front edge of the screen. Hold the tab on the screen with the tweezers and remove the screen. Hold the tab on the replacement screen with the tweezers and insert the new screen in place.

Lock the screen holder in place by pushing upward. Tip: The Type E screen features a lined grid that helps align horizons, reminds you of the rule-of-thirds points, and helps you detect converging lines, especially when using extreme wide-angle lenses.

It is probably the most useful of the optional screens for general-purpose use. The ML-3 draws its power from the camera and cannot accept the transient high voltage of AA lithium batteries. Note: If the lens being used has a smaller maximum aperture than shown above, shutter speeds will be slower than shown in order to maintain correct exposure.


Nikon F90X (N90S)

Accessories[ edit ] Nikon N90, F90, N90s and F90x had some accessories that improve the use of this cameras The optional MB battery grip which takes 4 AA batteries and which fits on to the base of the camera was also introduced. The MB added a vertical-grip shutter release and provides a larger grip area which is especially useful when a large lens is attached to the body. The MB will fully work only on the F90x and N90s models. Plain N90 and F90 models will receive and mount the MB10, but the vertical shutter controls will not work as they lack the necessary internal electrical contacts in the battery chamber.
