how to use non-dx encoded film in compacts?
I have a nikon compact (zoom 300 AF) and I wish to use non-dx encoded film with it but the camera doesn't allow me to change ISO settings nor exposure compensation.
How can I get pass this problem? is there a way to trick the DX reader?
Thanks for reading!

I remember seeing commercially made DX stickers that one would put onto the film cartridge some years ago. Maybe one can still get them?
