    Default Help on Nikon F80

    Hi,just purchased a second hand Nikon F80.

    Just wondering after every shot that i snap with my SLR do i need to advance the wheel to the next film like any other Film cameras or it will automatic advance to next frame after every shot is taken ?
    Cos i see theres like 2 Command Dial. One sub command dial and one main Command dial.At first i thought it was the advance wheel or something..

    It's an auto-advance camera. The 2 command dials are for adjusting the shutter speed and aperture.

    I've never used an F80 before, so can't help you much. But the 2 command dials are standard on some of the Nikon SLRs.

    The internet is your best friend to search for answers. Hope the others can help you on this.
